During drupa, Anne M. Mulcahy said that Xerox now thinks of IT as big I and little t. So the emphasis is on the information. I hope to find out more about this.

The technology is still in there however. She mentions that the new FreeFlow scanners have five chips but sensibly resists taking up time to explain what each one is for.

Exeter seems to be more connected over time. There is a wi-fi experiment with Freespot that has started in the Southgate Hotel and will soon be on the cathedral green. There is more going on with festivals and conferences. Exeter City Council are supporting music with Vibraphonic. Later in the year there will be Alt-C on learning and a Science Festival. I have done a poster to try to connect some of this. wi-fi at the bottom, learning and organisation at the top, some way apart. I will talk through this over the summer.
