[imagine a killer remix bed punctuated with poignant audio clips accompanying these ideas]
The rise of industrialization has typically driven innovation which has done some devastating things to nature, law, equity, justice. Remember the web we fell in love with? The web we lost? There came a moment when serendipity became something we had to tame, something from heart of darkness. A hazard. Brian made 5 arguments about the LMS - THE SYSTEM IS not about learning it's about management, grading, assessment: 1. Technology is not neutral. 2. Missed opportunities. 3. Silos 4. Draining cost. 5. Loss of Confidence. GET RID OF IT!
The web is filled with Gardner Campbell's bags of gold, a place we could copy, connect, build, share, link.
USE BLOGS & WIKIS, D'Arcy called from 2004 reminding Brian that he's been ranting about this for over 10 years. Even so, we've never really given blogs and wikis a chance. There's a great potential to do some amazing things in the open, with user innovation toolkits. We can make the web better. It's up to us.
