Putting the Helmet

Posted by

Finally I was able to read the article “A Personal Cyberinfrastructure” and see the video “No More Digital Facelifts” of Gardner Campbell, after a busy week.

While reading the article, I began to see a light at the end of the tunnel and the puzzle pieces to reveal a metaphor “putting the helmet and go to dig the mine”, which I usually use with a great friend.
We use this metaphor to explain the work, often lonely we do on the Internet, researching, discovering, testing and sharing, all in an informal learning environment.

I think this metaphor fits perfectly the message that attempts to transmit Gardner.
