Treading out Technology: theory meets praxis during a thousand mile walk round Wales
Swansea Nov 2012
In 2012 I will be walking around Wales following the Wales Coast Path that opened this year and Offa's Dyke long distance path up the borders. This is partly a personal journey reconnecting with the country of my childhood, but also a technological journey investigating the IT needs of the walker and the local communities through which I pass. Some of this will be mundane technologically speaking, but hopefully transformative in practice. However, I also expect to be pushed to the limits cartographically and theoretically. In particular, aspects of Semantic Web and the odd Galois Connection will be essential parts of the need to synchronise data between heterogeneous sources and following disconnection.
