One more dot, maybe a connection emerges.

Re: real-time communication with video image, this is getting big as bandwidth and technology costs fall. Found and forwarded this today.

RT @marshallk: Apple's Biggest News: Video Calling as Open Standard 50x in a few years #Junto

In Japan, more cell phones come with dual cameras, the inner one for video chat. Even a "simple" phone for the elderly with big buttons has it.

So far for one more dot, the connection feels close but has yet to pop into my mindspace.

This may seem obvious to someone. How will networks relate to education? What are the sources and sinks for intention flow in this area? Is this the new lens? Locally, there are the Scifi University projects. Students and grads still have campuses to fall back on, and socnets may be escapist for the overworked while internet of things handles routines. Many research projections seem to assume that there is still an academic structure in which post-humans are required to compete. Is this likely? Or are the utilities enough for knowledge diffusion, expert-on-demand, learning systems, ubiquitous computing, modeling, accessibility across demographics and reputations built on activities? Dependencies include the future professions and economics. Thanks.

@CoCreatr - thanks for the insights regarding the Japanese mobile market; indeed the ebullient joy over mobile video communication in the iPhone 4 promo video must be somewhat laughable to the Japanese.

I am hoping someone from Palomar5 will take the opportunity to jump in and give some insights/background on their organization. I'm deliberately leaving a space open for that to manifest.

@johnrod you might want to follow Basti Hirsch's Palomar5 education expedition project as it unfolds in its documentation.
