Megan Sapnar Ankerson is an Assistant Professor in Communication Studies at

technologies from historical, comparative, industrial, and cultural
perspectives. Her teaching and research interests include digital media,
visual culture, internet and web history, software studies and media
aesthetics. Her forthcoming book, *Dot-com Design*, examines the emergence
of “quality” web design practices as modes of imaging the future at the
turn of 21st century. She is currently working on a project about digital
nostalgia and amateur engagement with web archives.

Other interesting panel speakers for this list will be Catherine
Summerhayes (Australian National University) talking about Google earth as
a site for remembering and erasure and Niels Kerssens (University of
Amsterdam) about the various traditions of practice and discourse around
the relationship humans historically had with computers.
