HOW TO SAVE THE WORLD?......A tad tongue in cheek, perhaps and certainly trying not to take ourselves too seriously but we do think about big issues. A lot. The more we think about it, work on it, do…Continue

An excellent thought Julie. The artists' colony in Lewes I'm a member of is full of ladies debating such things and organising natural childbirth things amongst themselves.

 One of my big issues is the high birth mortality rate in some developing countries. I regulary go onto Yale on-line and attend one of their lectures and have passed this link on to loads of friends too. Recently on-line I was able to view a lecture delivered by the head of Italian Classics at Yale, great stuff and completely accessible to me, my idea was if it is so easy why cannot community workers in remote parts of the world have access to learning something like midwifery?, there are some language barriers etc but nothing insurmountable and its no extra hassle for the lecturer who is giving the lecture anyway. Might make a big difference as all that would be needed is some IT know how and a load of goodwill.

One tool required - and much needed - is that trust. We need to increase the levels of trust in most spheres of activity.
FastCompany magazine has an article on that today at:

W have been following the "Smart Cities" project for a long time. It was started by Ericcson, and a lot of very interesting work has already been done.
There's a page you can use to view a movie/status report which has been heavily updated from the original versions, and which breaks the material into 20 minute segments. Some thought provoking stuff - aimed at a Networked Society.

A New Business? :- Ethos Academe

Posted by Hugh Glaser on October 14, 2014 at 16:14 7 Comments

I've been puzzling for a while as to the relationship of Ethos and Academics (or rather people who work in Universities).

Usually the way in which academics get involved in outside activities is very project-driven and focussed, looking to see what and how specific knowledge and skills the academic might have can be applied to the external business.

But what if academics might be involved as Academics?

That is, what would be the vehicle for Ethos to provide an Ethos environment for people to undertake teaching, scholarship and research?

Would it look like MOOCs + TeamArmy?

I'm working on a paper around this, but does anyone have any views?
