Cultural analfabetism?

How can people in the street somewhere in the United States of America be so totally blank on trivial jeopardy questions about world geography, history , religion, warfare, past and highly actual events. OK - these may be the worst examples, and you could probably find ignorants everywhere. Or, is this an example of complete cultural blindness, US centric unawareness of the Outer World? Mention a country that begins with a U? Utopia!

An eye opening video.

Sus Nyrop's own blog n' roll

In this multitude of blogging opportunities and community courses, I have to admit that I've spread myself out thinly, so I would like to add links to my other blogs.

in 2002 I started blogging at
A co-blog with friends from Second Life, mostly in Danish language (SL as an informal learning environment)
The eduspaces education community blog that used to be an Elgg community and was recently taken over by a Canadian community - which I still wish to use because I've got many good virtual colleagues

My social bookmarks are at

I'll try to see how I could burn a feed for all of these when I figure out how to do this in an orderly manner.
(There are a few more, but not recently updated).

I also have some mashups that were abandoned, like Suprglu that is probably still aggregating some of my content.

The Piano - Amazing Short story of a life

While playing the piano, the old man is day dreaming about past life experiences. In the final scene, he is playing with a young boy, perhaps his grandson, or perhaps the piano player himself as a child. Sentimental and sweet glimpse down memory lane.

Mmm - who made it? Will have to check it out; just stumbled upon while browsing youTube the miscellanous way. The logo says Aniboom - which seem to be an amateur animation channel.

Webheads in Action session from TI festival 05

Tapped In has a festival every year, and I was involved in the process of preparing this several times. In 2005, we were hosting a chat session where Webheads in Action members could meet with others from the TI community. This was quite improvised as the invited speaker was not present. so what was told came right from our hearts. Rita Zeinstejer from Argentina, Bee Dieu from Brazil, Hala Fawzi from Sudan, Mike Marzio from France contributed to a lively hour of Q & A about Webheads - and Tapped In. This is our chatlog transcript from TI.
