Conviviality and the FLNW (un) Conference

Someone, Artichoke, Sept 22, 2006
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Yes. This is exactly what I am taking away from the New Zealand experience thus far: "What I came to think in the early hours of this morning is that one issue that is central to our imaginings about learning in a networked world, one issue that represents the weight of all that has been, is how we understand freedom. "We are willing enough to praise freedom when she is safely tucked away in the past and cannot be a nuisance. In the present, amidst dangers whose outcome we cannot foresee, we get nervous about her, and admit censorship.'" Hear hear (feeling very unfree at the moment).
