the big news is that we're partnering with Thebrain.com to do a more complete version of K-web. This will make it much easier to add content. We need programmers and testers, so let me know if you want to participate.

Ken Robinson recently did an interesting and entertaining talk http://www.ted.com/tedtalks/tedtalksplayer.cfm?key=ken_robinson&flashEnabled=1
James and I are reading his new book Out of Our Minds. It makes a strong argument for why the K-Web is so crucial, highly recommended. If you order it from the k-web store, you'll support the project.

Here's a compelling video presentation of an Open Source Virtual Reality software project by Alan Kay called Open Croquet. It includes making objects and physics engine to make simulation. It has the potential to radically change education.

Well, it seems like video on the WWW is finally happening in a big way, which has huge potential for enriching K-Web multimedia. We'll be adding more video to our index soon http://k-web.org/public_html/video.htm , but I just ran across an interview with one of our advisors, Jaron Lanier . One of the greatest satisfactions of working on K-Wweb is meeting amazing people like Jaron. You can view it here http://globetrotter.berkeley.edu/people5/Lanier/lanier-con0.html though I recommend the BBC version of Realplayer which has less problematic software http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/audiohelp_install.shtml

Thanks to Becky, and to Laurie and Kerry at Conboy and Associates for our new website!
