Thanks for the kind welcome!
I was taken by surprise by this venture, but it seems like I will be spending a lot of time here. Hope you are well - I am hearing a lot about you from our friend Olumide/Loomnie.
You wrote: "Anthropology has a distinguished past, but it has an even greater role to play in future, not necessarily as an academic discipline, but perhaps as an interdisiciplinary project: to discover what we need to know about humanity as a whole if we would make a better world. Such a project depends on making full use of the emerging social and technical synthesis entailed in the digital revolution."
Very well said....I would like to support this many times. Thank you.
Glad to hear it. I like this OAC very much so far - this being the second day of my participation. It makes a nice and refreshing difference in relevance, compared to the other social networking website I have nearly stopped using anyway - MyFace, or whatsitcalled.
Very exciting! I've just seen that my friend Olu from the MPI has joined the OAC too. I'm going to tell to the members of our 'Economy and Ritual' group in Halle about the OAC. Greetings from Prague where we are spending the weekend with Denis.
This looks like a good thing and suits my intimate-distant relationship to anthropology. Haven't heard from USC, they claimed they didn't receive page 2 of my Cambridge transcript so I'm in limbo for a bit, till that gets sorted out. Fingers crossed for Zurich. Tobias
We should be there from July 8th to end of August. We have a flat - 7, rue Claude Bernard, 75005 Paris - 01.45.87.06.15. 3rd floor. It would indeed be great to get together. Our son Andrew who is now director of the James S.Coleman Center for African Studies at UCLA just called and said how exciting it was for him to be a student in your class at Yale.
Hi Keith, thanks a lot for the invitation. Thanks to you I am willing to be a member of a network of this format. The Memory Bank is a different setting but that format fitted better to my virtual life pace. Thanks to you this will be a new matrix of participation.
It is very nice to see some of my colleagues from Oslo here (Hei Marinne og Knut).
Hi Keith, congratulations for your initiative, Anthropology cannot but be open and not academic and limited, I am publishing in July an article on the new trends of the field since the new Millenium in the special volume of the Indian journal Anthropologist so, I am vividly interested on exchanges of opinions as during the pioneer effort of 3a ( 3 little a) 10 years ago. Really , what happenned to Meraud ? You have any news of him ?
