Meet with David Kirsh? on designing workspaces
- Dear David Kirsh,
I lead an online laboratory Minciu Sodas http://www.ms.lt for serving and
organizing independent thinkers around the world. We met at UCSD just when I
was starting out. We also had a long conversation on the plane once from
Washington D.C. to San Diego. At that time I was working on an import/export
standard for tools for thinking.
We now have twenty working groups including one that I lead for developing
conceptual frameworks and another that Pamela McLean leads for ICT for
distance learning, especially where high-Internet-bandwidth and low-bandwidth
people are trying to work together, as in Africa. We also have a working
group on Global Villages which is now focusing on the roles that video
bridges can play. I found your work again in a volume edited by Peter
Gardenfors on conceptual spaces and ICT and I am in touch with him and also
very interested in his work. I'm also interested in Robert Horn's work on
visual language, the combining of words and images for most effective
communication. Of course, we have many real life needs and solutions of our
own for creating effective workspaces for organizing and exploring.
I am very interested that our worldwide laboratory might serve you and your
colleagues, for example, to conduct and record video bridges to generate
material useful for you. More generally, we'd like to collect other kinds of
first-hand accounts and make them available for all manner of explorations as
well as outreach. Currently we are collecting "food stories" at
Might we meet this Friday or Monday? I hope so. Please let me know! I will
try to call you.
I alert our working groups Living By Truth
Learning From Each Other
and Global Villages
to your work:

+1 (760) 753-3507
Is there a link to David Kirsh's work?
Also - where is the best place for me to become better informed about
This is a general interest question and also because I am wondering if
there is anything we should try to experiment with
when I am doing online sessions with the teachers at Fantsuam.
