Reflection

"For the gains in autonomy, democracy, justice, and a critical culture to materialize, the practices of nonmarket information production, individually free creation, and cooperative peer production must become more than fringe practices. They must become part of life for substantial portions of the networked population." - Yochai Benkler, The Wealth of Networks.

About Me

I live on Waiheke Island, New Zealand/Aotearoa and I am a Sysop & Beauracrat for Wikieducator as well as currently on the Community Council.

I am currently undertaking a Postgraduate Diploma in Teaching (Secondary) at the University of Auckand, School of Education. While I've been away from Wikieducator for some time now, I may start to use again as I pursue my studies.


Previous things I've worked on 'round here and here

I attended the Tectonic Shift Think Tank in Vancouver in April, 2007 and the FLOSS4Edu Pacific Workshop in Wellington, August 2007.
