Conference ‘The Future of Democracy in the Balkans’ and my talk on Digital Divide

I have just returned from OSF/Chevening conference where I’ve talked on the higher education panel, as the University of Oxford Alumni, the only Internet scholar, and information management specialist, on bridging the digital divide in the super connected world.
Slides of my presentation are on my SlideShare and the podcast is at my account on SoundCloud with all descriptions, credits, and tags. The recorded talk covers three major concerns in Internet and social media and higher education, all applicable in other areas: literacies, knowledge gap, and notworking/not collaboration. Interaction, thoughts, and comments of the audience are not included. I talked pretty fast, since I wanted to give more space for discussion, thoughts, sharing. I hope you will understand what I was talking about.

  1. In one moment, three days ago, I saw your Foursquare check-in at Nikola Tesla Airport (Belgrade). I felt very happy because I saw the opportunity to finally meet you in person, but, on the other hand, that was kinda illogical and I wondered why you haven’t contacted me, as you promised, my dear friend. I thought you were super busy…

    I hope we can see each other next time. Please keep this in mind. Good luck with your fantastic idea(s) and your fulfilled schedule.

  4. It’s hard for me to find any connection between your talk and Democracy in the Balkans, but okay. I don’t want to think about that right now.

    Like most interesting question sounds one about the way to recognize crap from useful information. Maybe you can put more focus on that.

    P.S. You’re right, the last part was really fast. Why did you allow anyone to push you like that?

  5. Digital divide, if it’s this wide in the West, imagine what it looks like down here in Africa. However, the gap is gradually shrinking, with more young people hooked up on social networks.

    The advocacy and hype that attended the 2011 Elections in Nigeria is a case in point.

    Good one.
