Things move fast with new technologies. When NIACE agreed last year to publish my book, Digital Nations in the making on adult learning and using IT, I thought I could give the book a virtual updating here with this blog whenever needed; and provide other people the chance to make comments, corrections and additions. Now the galleys are back with Charlotte at NIACE and we are working on the final text, agreeing the arrangements for the use of photos and completing the index – always a useful feature since there are loads of interesting details and over 200 references.

Charlotte has been working with her team to innovate their web marketing of NIACE books and has agreed to allow as a pilot the downloading of a short section from Digital Nations from the website. This is great news, so let me and NIACE know if it is useful.  Publication date looks like mid May – as far as they can tell at the moment! There's more information, document downloads and links to the photo gallery at the digitalnations website.
