Re: [-empyre-] what needs to be done (Skills For Participatory Culture)

Dear Aliette,

It is hard to understand your post - as my google translation does not
do justice.

disconnect allows for open situations where parallel ideas can be
merged.  It can be useful to confuse information.

encourage the education of the "parents" along with the "students" ?

Sorry again for not being able to understand your post - if you are
able to highlight some questions in english, I will be happy to
