I'm excited too about developing my big project - http://worlduniversityandschool.org - partly by teaching it, at the MIT Media Lab (as I wait to hear back), as well as developing further my Harbin research, another very big project. Having recently come in contact with Bruno Labour, a French Anthropologist and Professor at SciencesPo heading their MediaLab and London School of Economics' Professor too (both greatest unis for Anthropology in France and England) and re translation, I see further potential and interesting Anthropological and I.T. / media explorations ahead.
