It is my firm belief that one of the most important use cases for OHS/DKR
technology resides in the vast expanses of human activity called
learning. Parker Rossman posted some comments to the Global Brain list
that included a URL that led to the following site:
This is a 3-volume (I've not looked at the entire manuscript yet!) online
manuscript entitled _The Future of Higher Education: For All Worldwide, a
On that page, we read:
"THESE PAGES ARE UNDER CONTINUING CONSTRUCTION. SUGGESTIONS ARE WELCOME,
ESPECIALLY LINKS TO WEB PAGES WITH UPDATED INFORMATION ON ANY OF THESE
TOPICS. Especially corrections of errors."
which leads me to believe that this manuscript is intended to be a *living
document*. I suppose that were it to be contained in a DKR implemented
with NODAL, the document would include version control.
In any case, we read:
"Volume One begins with institutional forms and structures and focuses on
preservation and transmission of the knowledge and wisdom of the past.
Volume Two is on the future of research. Volume Three focuses on the
individual: learning and teaching. They should be seen as an 'outline' to
which web page addresses will be added."
I cannot make any concrete value judgements on the manuscript; I have just
begun to probe its depths (and download it for further study). But, Volume
1, Chapter 2 begins with the following George Gilder quotation:
"The force of microelectronics will blow apart all the monopolies,
hierarchies, pyramids and power grids of established. . . society. --George
I confess: that quote mirrors my own sentiments.
The manuscript merits the following:
review by all who take an interest in education
discussion, perhaps here, perhaps in some *real soon now* OHS
possible collaboration with Parker Rossman to further meld the
boundaries between our interests and those expressed in the manuscript.
