    16. 16. Resident practice…and I’m now part of the Urban Design Groupon Facebook as well, so I tend to post things.So if I’m looking, you know, just procrastinatingon the internet and looking for architecturalthings, or things about house decoration, whichI like a lot, and I find something interesting, Ithink will be useful for them, I post to them onthe group.

    18. 18. Belonging - practice …the Facebook group is extremely active also, if not for just complaining about an assignment or trying to find a particular reading, but also sharing current news articles with each other. UKG2
    19. 19. Resident practiceI don’t get involved with things like Facebookand Twitter. I have major misgivings about theconfidentiality of things such as that and thefact that people do trawl it to see who saidwhat, and it’s not easy to wipe off what yousaid at some later stage. …I don’t have anobjection to them in principle, but I think inpractice they can actually be quite dangerousweapons. UKF4
    20. 20. Belonging - practice So Wikipedia, I say Wikipedia often but it is not just for learning, I like to go on there and just read things, anything really. So I don’t use that often, if I can avoid it I do. If I was using it as a source in my coursework I probably wouldn’t use Wikipedia because it is unreliable. UKS3
    21. 21. Comments:Good post, Dave, but no (I think)……I think you’re drawing a third discretecategory of interpersonal interaction where youneed to be seeing the boundaries of the othertwo as very fuzzy and indistinct. But that latteridea isn’t going to get anyone keynote gigs orradio 4 interviews… 

    23. 23. Things to consider Am I already well known? Is the ‘success’ criteria changing? What do I consider to be credible practice? What do I believe about the production of knowledge? Am I prepared to ‘decompartmentalise’?
