Prof Michael Wheeler (University of Stirling) on  "The Knowledge Ecology - The Past, Present and Future of Knowing with People and Things".

Overview: Knowledge is often thought of as residing within the heads of individual human beings. By reflecting on a range of issues - including the plight of Roman memory slaves and our children's education in an increasingly networked technological world - I shall challenge this idea and explore certain consequences of a profoundly different view.
