There are times when you feel you are the only one finding aspects of a course difficult, through conversation and connection we find that there are always ways in which one can help another.

“The quantity of human labour and ingenuity that has gone into building net-based communication systems in a very short space of time is unprecedented.” (Lister,2009. p165)
High expectations of technology and sci fi from Block 1 (Cyber Cultures) makes me feel that technology may not have a consciousness but they are intelligent. Consciousness and Intelligence are different. Yes, technology can become more intelligent but I have no fear in them killing us but instead a fear that we may find ourselves redundant. Labour goes into creating machine but will it last forever.
Thanks to Chenée, I feel a little relieved that AI is unlikely to replace our jobs as choreographers. In the field of dance, individuals wear many hats and one may find themselves in the role of a performer, artist, teacher, educationalist, choreographer or researcher. This role can evolve through their journey and career in dance until finding a specialism. As a dance educationalist, I hope to use technology to enhance the educational aspects and safe practice of dance.

Clare, I can not possibly purchase and read another book….Please, do not tempt me!
Clare shared an image of her MOOC assignment and I found it fascinating. Due to my current situation, I was able to identify with one of the toys within her work.
