Oxford Internet Institute presentation

Just created a blog page with the transcript of my recent OII presentation on urban food futures and ICTs: http://digitalanthropologist.blogspot.co.uk/p/my-research-talks.html

I discuss what has been going on at MyFarm, billed as an experiment in the collective management of a real farm over the internet by the public (www.my-farm.org.uk). I recently completed ethnographic fieldwork there and at the National Trust owned farm in Cambridgeshire (Home Farm) which the MyFarm participants follow the progress of and have a say in running through a monthly vote on an issue.
