The Crisis of Capital

Monday 5 July 2010

Stephen Downes is one the handful of bloggers I follow consistently. I do so because Downes (unlike many others unfortunately) like to write about his thinking AS WELL AS promoting the thinking of others, whether or not he agrees with them. In that way you get a solid collection of alternative views within his field of endeavour (learning & teaching et al).

Whether or not you agree with the content, it is highly recommended

The link to the presentation online is here
