From Kuching to Sapporo

On location SarawakOn location Sarawak I’m writing from Kuching, capital city of Sarawak, the second largest Malaysian state on the island of Borneo. I’m here for a month working on the micro-docs series, Sarawak Gone, which you can read about on APC News.

On 27 July I head for Sapporo, Japan where I will participate in the next iCommons iSummit that will see the production of video, Identifying The Commons, for both APC and the iCommons. Identifying The Commons will support the APC Strategic Scoping Paper, Growing the Global Information Commons.
