I'm in Lancaster and have visited the city centre and campus. Only a brief look but I think the campus could work ok with an online resource such as Futurelearn. The Guardian is still featuring negative views ( see Monday editorial page) but I think the MOOC is just one aspect of how the web can change things.
I went on a WiFi bus that worked just fine. Also the Blackwells bookshop is selling the Nook, and displaying the offer well. Previously Waterstones did stock the Sony Reader but it was almost hidden.
More later. I can edit pictures ok with Picasa but still feel more comfortable home in Exeter with desktop. This may change but still more to visit for the rest of the week.
