memefest 2004 - international festival of radical communication

Memefest, the international festival of radical communications, invites undergraduate and graduate students in communications studies and sociology to look back to the dawn of the Information Age and respond to the 1993 article, `Cyberwar is Coming.` Penned by John Arquilla and David Ronfeldt for the RAND Corporation, this eerily prophetic essay made predictions about how information would be used to sway public opinion, pressure governments and corporations, and even wage war. Memefest is looking for `Ten Years Later` articles that address Arquila and Ronfeldt`s predictions and look at how concepts such as Netwar and Cyberwar have manifested politically and culturally. Entries will be judged by an international jury and the best articles will be awarded with the Award of excellency. For details and competition guidelines, check out the Memefest website:
