  17. 22. “ Some people say that TV and radio were meant to revolutionise learning – and didn’t. But they did. They just didn’t change the learning that takes place in classrooms.” “ It will not be easy but the next generation will create new models of scholarly publishing and learning regardless of whether we choose to participate. The only question will be what role we carve out for ourselves.”
