Human IT 10.3.

Since I am at the editorial board, spreading here information about the latest issue of the open ‘Human IT’ journal:

A fresh issue (10.3) of Human IT is now available at, marking the finalization of the tenth volume of Human IT. More on this occasion in the editorial at

Although a non-thematic issue, 10.3 does pick up the thread on communicative media that was spun in 10.2, and features two peer reviewed articles on academic blogs and instant messaging. Three articles in Swedish discuss web portals for regional culture, integrity issues, and the history and philosophy of copyright.

We hope you will aid us in spreading this information to those you think might be interested. And enjoy your reading!
