    Slide 8    

This slide discusses the concept of network ecologies that I explained in greater depth in the published versions of my presentations; e.g.

As an example of how knowledge is distributed in distributed networks I used Stephen Downes's example in which he explains how no one person knows how to organize flying a plane from London to Paris (including building the plane, maintaining it, navigating it, filling it with passengers, etc.). This slide makes the point that MUVEs are compelling substrates for attracting and supporting such networks, and one reason for this is that they are fun, and thus motivate people to come there and experience F.U.N. while learning from one another.
