Great comment in the Guardian today from Anthony Barnett about Democracy 2.0. In particular, I enjoyed the relationships drawn between new technologies and "new forms of political decision-making". We run shy of this type of conversation in higher education and yet the politics of Web 2.0 is one of its most powerful affordances and one that we should eagerly grasp. It helps to reinforce the arguments of Ronald Barnett that the HE project is about a student's coming to know their subject, their world and themselves, and make contextualised decisions.
