Curation  Viplav Baxi also blogged about the curation debate and Alison (my long suffering wife) was not as delighted as I was to learn from me that Viplav had been good enough to transcribe some of the conversation.  Thanks Viplav.

I feel very excited to be starting  my first on-line collaborative learning experience.
