“I absolutely believe that you can design interfaces that create more safe spaces to interact,” says Erika Hall as quoted by Annalee Newitz, “in the same way we know how to design streets that are safer.” I’m going to need to make a category here for this, because I’ve talked about the relationship between how we talk about online space and how we talk about offline space, but I’ve no convenient way to find all those posts. (I imagine most of them are buried within Community somewhere.) What I really want to know is if there’s a conference—or even just a gang blog—devoted to talking about those ways we talk about online space and offline space, and what lessons can be learned from each to apply to the other.
