  • The Brick
    When Martin Cooper invented the mobile phone 35 years ago, he envisioned a world with people so wedded to wireless connections that they would walk around with devices embedded in their bodies.

  • Objections from educators
    Mobile phones are banned in most schools because...
    ...they are distracting and disruptive. The phone becomes the focus of attention,
    inappropriate images/videos can be taken and sent, leading to invasion of privacy and loss of teacher control!

  • Squeeze text
    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.

  • Does education need transformation?
    "In large states public education will always be mediocre, for the same reason that in large kitchens the cooking is usually bad."
