The Revolution will be Syndicated
"A wild and zombie starring presentation in Second Life by Jim Groom and Tom Woodward at the 2008 NMC Symposium on "Rock the Academy" The coming revolution will be syndicated through a web of feeds making ideas ever easier to find. Sharing will no longer be the exception, but the rule. Enduring these hard, transitional times takes not only a revolutionary mindset, but the resourcefulness of a survivalist, therefore the methods we will examine are not only mind altering, but they are also very cheap, flexible, and open.

This presentation will involve some performance art in an effort to "revolutionize" how we imagine web-based publishing in higher education. Be ready to doff the chains of LMS slavery and join the brave new world of web-publishing in the Age of Syndication."
