Another attempt at a script outline along the campus of Lancaster University. There may eventually be an edited sequence as a broadcast but so far the online versions just have their own audience. The bits on youTube have had some views but whether they were watched in sequence I don't know.

Recent developments include the Sony Reader and more online worlds such as Twinity. More on this as we reach Alexanderplatz. The Sony Reader is getting closer to the form of a book. So an actual card could exist with several journal articles and downloads of various kinds, to be viewed and commented on along the route.

Start with InfoLab21. Recently from the website, an agenda for a meeting about Spectrum.

Also worth downloading, a pdf about "The Next Phase of Broadband UK: Action now for long term competitiveness"

And it is possible to create a PDF of the Cluetrain Manifesto or find other material about what the Web may be about.

Another phase in the George Fox Building.
Critique part one
On the Sony Reader, Against Learning by Chris Grey

Permission to video is unlikely, they have their own plan for Youtube presentation. But I think there is a possible benefit in more commenting and linking.

Recent Deming related download explains the pragmatism as philosophy. However most academics who study learning still have little interest in quality.

A PDF has been created from the website now at the Deming Electronic Network


Alexander Square / Alexanderplatz

Video may be easier in Second Life or Twinity. Alexanderplatz seems the obvious place to go. Topics to include the effect on a library and bookshop of Web technology. Sony Reader stocked in all UK Waterstones so they may talk to camera or link to someone authorised to comment.

Relevant downloads

The book Everything is Miscellanmeous is not easy to find as an e-book. However there is a blog that could be sent to Feedbooks and also an mp3 of an interview. The Sony Reader has a headphone socket. (Feedbooks can work from any newspaper or blog feed. You may need to register for this option to appear.)


The IAS has a current theme on "competitveness".

UK Education and Everyday Life:
Campaigns for ‘employability’ after the globalised turn1

Dr Phoebe Moore, University of Salford

Topics for discussion to include what a university is about as well as the Web and what to do with it.


Adult / continuing education

Recent publication on Creative Economy could relate to what people learn informally. Most innovation in personal computers / browser extensions happens at home. I have added comment to Guardian Talk. this blog format and future video or text exchange may be just as constructive.

Two PDF files one two

End destination the Spicy Hut and/or cut to city centre. Assumes permission to video at some point. Possibly we left for virtual Berlin at an earlier stage.
