    The 21st century is a world in constant change. In A New Culture of Learning, Doug Thomas and John Seely Brown pursue an understanding of how the forces of change, and emerging waves of interest associated with these forces, inspire and invite us to imagine a future of learning that is as powerful as it is optimistic.

    Story

    I'm usually a big fan of JSB. I read his PARC stuff at the Uni, and always found him incisive and original. How disappointing then this book -- which is a dull, staid, academic rehash of material found elsewhere. Authors bring nothing new to the party, except 10,000 feet generalities and observations. Yawn. If you want to explore the revolutionary potential of social media, I'd reccomend Clay Shirky -- even Seth Godin -- over this turgid, unoriginal tome. There's nothing new here that hasn't been said better elsewhere.
