Digital Cultural Capital –
“Where digital
communication has
fractured the tyranny of
distance, and computers
have become pervasive and
ubiquitous, identification
through digital mediation
has become the new
cultural capital”.

What is this?
The competition was for re-writing
the Lord's Prayer for the mobile
phone, using just 160 characters or
less. It was judged for Ship of Fools
by the Churches' Broadcasting
Conference. The task itself was not
easy. The traditional version of the
Lord's Prayer is 372 characters long,
so whittling it down to 160
characters meant cutting the prayer
by more than half but without losing
anything important.

more self-directed
better equipped to capture information
more reliant on feedback from peers
more inclined to collaborate
