    Teaching the History of Computer Science

    Students who are truly interested in computer science would enjoy
    learning about those programmers who went before them, and how they
    overcame their difficulties.

    Persuasive Technology: Using Computers to Change What We Think and Do

    Can computers really change what you think and do? Can they motivate you
    to stop smoking, persuade you to buy insurance, or convince you to join the
    Army? In this thought-provoking book based on nine years of research,
    B.J. Fogg, director of the Persuasive Technology Lab at Stanford University,
    reveals how Web sites, software applications and mobile devices can be used
    to change people's attitudes and behavior. Chapter 5, "Computers as
    Social Actors," explores how computer products use social cues to motivate
    and influence.

    > Organization: LipanjePuntin
    > Exhibition: digitalsistersindeed.org
    > Place: LipanjePuntin artecontemporanea - Trieste - Italy
    > Duration: 10 January - 25 February
    > Opening: Friday 10 January 2003, from 7 pm onwards
    > On Friday 10th January 2003, LipanjePuntin artecontemporanea has the
    > pleasure of presenting digitalsistersindeed.org, Domiziana Giordano's
    > first solo exhibition.
    > Domiziana Giordano was born in Rome where she gained a diploma at the
    > Liceo specializing in arts. Later she left the Faculty of Architecture
    > to concentrate on theatre and cinema. Once she had finished her
    > studies at Silvio d'Amico's Academy of Dramatic Arts in Rome, she
    > continued her personal research at the Stella Adler Studio in New York
    > and New York's Film Academy as director. After having worked as
    > assistant director in theatre productions and films, she acted in
    > leading roles for films by A. Tarkowskji, J.L. Godard, Nicholas Roeg
    > and Neil Jordan.
    > Domiziana Giordano is an artist, actress, video artist, net.artist,
    > photographer and bases her work on researching new interactivities
    > between various disciplines, taking you on a voyage across the study
    > of language and communication. It is a unique fusion of interactive
    > contents and structures which reveal a new method of narration,
    > digging deep into the roots of visual art, the science of semiotics,
    > cinema and new technology.
    > For some years now Giordano's research has concentrated on space, time
    > and the perspective of movement. In her most recent series of
    > photographs, Walk, Human Kind, Surveillance Camera, Trains and Sea,
    > which are on display at LipanjePuntin artecontemporanea, the images
    > are shot and put into sequence: pictures of people in movement, the
    > countryside rolling by, or controlled areas, like the underground and
    > shots caught on CCTV, where the structural harmony and perspective of
    > the place is interrupted by the continuous passing of people.
    > It is an image study which Giordano manages to establish on various
    > levels: the visual one, where it looks into the dynamics of the forms
    > and the perspective of space through time, and the philosophical one,
    > where the interpretational issue is realized by the existential
    > analysis of one or more realities and points of view.
    > Gallery hours: 11.00-19.30 or by appointment Mondays and Public
    > Holidays closed
