Well the parcels arrived today at midday, so thanks to Charlotte at NIACE and the printers. We have finally got Digital nations in the making out before the end of May. This is good, as I had wanted to get some copies available for tomorrow's Big Lottery Fund Event in Birmingham. This is for Community Grid and NOF Digitisation projects, which received funding from 2001-2006. The event sounds interesting and there should be people there interested in the book's themes.

It's time too to announce that NIACE are offering two prizes of £25 vouchers (to be spent on any NIACE books) to the first two people who have bought a copy of the book and get the answers right to three questions about Digital nations in the making. So here's your chance to pick just what you'd like from NIACE's excellent booklist! Here are the 3 questions!

Q1: What is the date of the most current reference in the endnotes of Digital Nations in the making, what is its theme and to which two US cities does it refer?

Q2: On what page is a poem by Ted Hughes mentioned and to what does it refer?

Q3:  Which Canadian novelist is described in the book as using a telechiric device and what is the device called? 

To claim your prize send your answers by email with proof of purchase of the book to Charlotte Owen at NIACE. Her email is Charlotte.Owen@niace.org.uk
