Knowledge, Learning, Community
This is the sort of publication people working in net related fields should read on a regular basis. Not because they have anything to do with online learning or even the internet in particular, but because they help as an antidote against slipping into the rut of traditional thinking. What we once thought were constants - even basic things, like the elements of communication - are changed by the net. This paper explores that idea, showing how our usual means of communication lead to misunderstanding, and how in a multi-cultural and multi-contextual society we are going to have to take the time to make our thoughts - if not our words - clear. 263K PDF linked from this web page.
