After being invited to be on a panel for nethui south Â – talking about digital inclusion – I’ve been asked to moderate another one for ACAB‘s conference in Dunedin, with Colin Peacock and Ian Telfer. Â Rarified company indeed!
Its really very satisfying being asked to do these things, and very flattering too. Â I have to be careful about not letting it go to my head though. Â I also nee to remember to do some work before the gigs as well: I’ve winged these things far too often, and though I get invited back, I’d like to take the opportunity a bit more seriously as well.
With the Nethui panel I’d like to concentrate on access toÂ governmentÂ funded research by people not lucky enough to be aligned with a tertiary institution. Â I’ll have to get some stats together on how many people have access to the places CRIs (or whatever they are) publish.
For the ACAB thing, a quick bio on each and a few pre-prepared questions should do it I suppose.
I am looking forward to it though, being in front of a group. Â I suppose what I want to do is make sure the people there don’t just get the Anton show, but I take the opportunity to raise important points.
