Whilst EnglishFolkFan is going to save some BBC radio channels and SheffTim will continue to illuminate the BBC blogs on science (notably biodiversity and climate change issues), I'm.......................moving to Silicon Valley. Bye and good luck for Digital Emmy and future Virtual Revolutions!

Thanks again to fellow participants --- it was definitely fun as well as informative and collaborative, :*).Thanks to Dan Biddle for even-handed summaries and good sense of humor throughout what were sometimes voluminous streams of consciousness. What do I hope for the future of the Web? I believe we need more inspirational technical women of the caliber of Dame Wendy Hall and others listed here:* http://eu.techcrunch.com/2009/03/24/ada-lovelace-day-celebrating-women-in-tech/* http://www.computerweekly.com/blogs/witsend/2010/03/a-few-great-posts-for-ada-lovelace-day.htmlWe also need ones who can found and grow companies like a Google. The sooner more talented women become involved at code and values level of the Web, the sooner the Web will become smarter and more socially conscious. Hopefully, we won’t need to wait another 20 years before some technical female CEO-founders of the likes of a Google / Facebook emerge. After all, think how comedy became smarter when the likes of Tracey Ullman, Jennifer Saunders and Tina Fey appeared in the mix.For adieus. since the BBC is showing this at Easter:* http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bRjbWV7T-s Fri 02 Apr 2010 12:11:19 GMT+1 Dan Biddle http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/digitalrevolution/2010/03/virtual-revolution-the-last-po.shtml?page=50#comment3 Many thanks SheffTim and EnglishFolkFan :) As two of our 'early adopters' and regular contributors, your final And fond farewells are much appreciated. It's been great sharing this project with you.(Love the Barbie bye-byes!)Dan Tue 30 Mar 2010 14:14:59 GMT+1 SheffTim http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/digitalrevolution/2010/03/virtual-revolution-the-last-po.shtml?page=33#comment2 Lost my train of thought above.OK. Focus now.'Both in the extreme cases' ... and in the less clear-cut; our increasing dependence on these gadgets in everyday life and work.Now, no really, I mean it this time: "Bub Bye, Buh Bye now, Bub Bye..."http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toFm4CkDaUE&feature=related Mon 29 Mar 2010 22:11:54 GMT+1 SheffTim http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/digitalrevolution/2010/03/virtual-revolution-the-last-po.shtml?page=16#comment1 The Web at 40 will be unrecognisable from the one we know today; as the 'landscape' has changed in the past 20 years, so it will continue to change over the next 20. The themes that you programme covered and the issues discussed here will still be as valid. It'll be interesting to see if the answers will have become any more clear-cut to issues such as file sharing, intellectual property rights and so on?One issue I think will rise up the agenda will be our 24/7 dependency on these 'glowing screens', both in the extreme cases. e.g. London doc starts service for young "screenagers" 18/03/10http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=239538 'Screenagers' - Damn, wish I'd thought of that one. (Hmm, a book called 'Generation tXt' perhaps?)Good luck at the Digital Emmys.I enjoyed participating; the discussions (and rushes) were stimulating, and of quite a high level of informed, involved debate. I learnt a lotAdieu, Salut.Pity I can't embed this, but in similar vein to Pete n Dud :-)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toFm4CkDaUE&feature=related Mon 29 Mar 2010 22:05:01 GMT+1 EnglishFolkfan http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/digitalrevolution/2010/03/virtual-revolution-the-last-po.shtml?page=0#comment0 So long, farewell, it's been good to know you .........Great choreography from yourself Dan meant the whole time one felt privileged to be in the chorus line of a Blockbuster Show.Maybe the speed of change will bring the next review in 10 years rather than 20 ~ from my end of a lifetime I sure hope it does.Actually, the whole concept and execution of the series has to be 'The' best interactive participation the BBC has ever hosted. Long may this Quality Broadcasting be championed & aired.OK off now to try and #save6music & the Asian network and sort out the stupidity of axing them when digital radio is being prematurely foisted on us: Plus fighting the undemocratic #debill ~ if that happens in it's present guise there may not be a 'legal' online audience for any future revolutions, virtual or otherwise!Best of all good wishes to you Dan and everyone else on the Production Team and all the other online participants ~ Wasn't it FUN!!!!!!!
