Dan Cull writes on “Conservation on the Cyber Frontier”

In the new issue of e-conservation Dan Cull writes on the history of the internet and how it has intersected conservation and where we might go with it.

The adoption of the internet as a major component of the conservators work is well underway, particularly of note has been the adoption of a wide array of Web 2.0 technologies within the conservation profession. The question remains to what extent conservators can fully broaden their collaborative efforts to access their creative collective imagination and knowledge and where this may take them within cyberspace.

This is what PCAN is trying to do, too…adopt technology as a way to broaden our collective knowledge and provide a forum for our work. What do you think readers? I’m sure Dan would love to hear from you, too.

Shameless plug: We need more contributors for PCAN. Your humble editors want to prove that this Web 2.0 thing is not a fad but a useful tool for a geographically and institutionally diverse community.

  1. Hi All,

    Thank-you very much for plugging this paper on your website, I hope you found it useful in some way. Some of your readers might like to know that the paper is also available in Serbian:

    Kal, Danijel. 2009. Konzervacija na granici sajberspejsa. Reantica. 06/11/09. (Prevela sa engleskog Kristina Horjak). http://reantica.org/html/cull.html

    It’s great to see this site developing… keep up the good work! I think you’re already proving that within conservation Web 2.0 is not a passing fad.

    All the best,

    Cheers, Dan
