Reading the Guardian I found a report from the Work Foundation on UK cities, explained in relation to the knowledge economy. Thinking back to the meetings about leadership I am even more convinced that there is a case that the knowledge economy already exists and that leadership is adjusting to this. There can still be critique of the associated rhetoric but there also seems to be a reality around something that has happened. Same sort of thing with "safety", at least as far as the Web is concerned. Info security is an issue.

YouTube has other videos following the "I am an American" theme. So far the main point for me from the Safety conference is that the Web is accepted as part of what else happens for academics. One evening meal was at Info 21, the technobabble centre of the campus. Not that there cannot be a critique of this sort of thing but it is also true that something has already happened.
Now on holiday so updates next week. The official blog has more news.
