  • Wow! Thank you so much for all the great comments and feedback. I really believe that humor brings people together and, as Melanie noted, a lot of folks in academia are quite distraught about how technology is changing what we do and how we do it. This talk was meant to start conversations. I'm glad to see it's working.

  • Slide 47: wrong IMO. It IS impolite to phone/txt/twitter/type on a PC while ppl are talking to you: common courtesy. Technology is not a god. Everything else though is excellent, and is a good reflection on how truth & knowledge is made universally available via the 'net, and the potential to empower all who seek. An issue it fails to work into the plot though is that hopefully the knowledge of the experience of teachers is better than a hundred bits of Facebook and blog rants. Technology and democratised 'net knowledge is great, but don't throw the baby out with the bathwater.

    (PS I am not a university boffin - in fact I only went there a few weeks, so I am not defending them.)
