stairwell I scaled these stairs yesterday afternoon to put the finishing touches to a book chapter on blogging. Somehow, whilst doing this, I realised how much more there is to explore in this particular territory. It’s that familiar tension between taking in the broad sweep of things (the Web 2.0 book will do that) and focusing in on specific new literacy practices. From now on my attention will be on working up the virtual world material for publication…and on that note I’m looking forward to this day conference on virtual worlds in May which looks very interesting. Meanwhile, back at home, renovation work carries on apace with work on all the sash windows and dust everywhere!
