IDEA TO PONDER: What if we at UK all adopted as a truism that the social networking via the Internet of the 1990s is gone and now we believe in the technologies of “tuning in” instead? that there we are beginning to shift “beyond the desktop” and that walking or simply “being there” connects us via the Internet (i.e., “slow technology”)? What would our classrooms, our campus look like? What would the city streets of Lexington or the walking/biking trails in central Kentucky look like? Would we, as a public flagship institution, begin to build public civic locations where connection to a community of subject matter experts could take place?
