How ubiquitous, embedded, transparent and animated can the internet gets and what will happen then. That was the topic of the plenary session at the Annual Meeting of the Association of Law Libraries last Wednesday. It’s adapted from the article Jerry Kang, the presenter (a UCLA law professor), co-wrote with an architecture professor:
Jerry Kang and Dana Cuff, Pervasive Computing: Embedding the Public Sphere, 62 Washington and Lee Law Review 93 (2005).
I enjoyed his presentation a lot, but could not help being distracted by the fabulous software program he used in his presentation. Instead of using the rather static PowerPoint, he used a software called MindManager. He typed as he expanded his themes, showing the context of his ideas. He uses this program in his teaching as well. It looks like it is a great teaching and presentation tool as you can save the thinking process for your students or your audience. Something to check out in addition to the "brave new worlds" he suggested in his article.
