I thought it would be a good idea to make a list of all guests and all the great lectures in my just-concluded brand-new course DM2573 "Sustainability and Media Technology".
I don't know why I haven't thought about doing this before, in my other courses. I actually think this is such a good idea that I just created and "retroactively" published (backdated) two new blog posts listing the 2010 line-up and 2011 line-up of guest lecturers in my course DM2578 "Social Media Technologies" (which I will not be responsible for any longer because of new commitments - i.e because I switched to responsibility to the new course about sustainability).
The "Sustainability and Media Technology" course ended with a "gripe session" yesterday and I got a lot of feedback that will help us improve the course for next year! Here is the 2012 line-up of our 12 guests (plus my own and colleague/course co-planner Jorge Zapico's lectures):
