The society and technology interest group (soctech) is an informal interest group that we are starting up among UW-CSE students to promote awareness of various social computing issues, in both CSE and the UW. We plan to collaborate with other departments, with possible aims including the production of cross-departmental courses, lecture series, or white papers.

We're just getting started; we have a mailing list, soctech@cs. Here's the public list info page.

Current activities

  • soctech seminar: Weekly seminar/reading group held in CSE; open to all students
The seminar is our primary current activity; see the individual quarter pages for more details.

Less active (left here mostly for archival purposes):

People and organizations

This is a non-exhaustive list of people and intra-UW institutions at UW who are interested in, or relevant to, society/technology topics. We're in contact with most of these people informally.

Current people

Current UW-CSE coordinator: Travis Kriplean

Current UW law coordinator: Jim Sfekas

Other students (feel free to add your name here):


Past members of (and collaborators with) soctech@cs...

UW organizations

We're in informal contact with most of these, or have been in the past. The extent to which we actually work with them varies widely.
