Car factory

In Sweden to deliver a keynote to a soul searching conference exploring education futures in the context of a government that has lost faith in ICT - curious since Sweden was at the heart of pioneering and hugely effective work back in the era of multimedia.

The conference was set in a remarkable conversion of an old car factory - which had been reconfigured as an exciting and agile space, but keeping the functional features of manufacture. I liked the "catwalk" shown here, that encouraged presenters to walk away from the screen into the audience. i also liked thw scrapwood trees two of which cn be seen further down the walkway, at the end

The conference also enjoyed a remarkable debate between children and politicians...

Oh Iain - I wish. Following it every tack of the way, of course, and doing the virtual Volvo with 200,000 others, but would love to be there.

Mind you, had a good race this weekend myself, so not all bad...
