Would you like to help us with a trial?

We are in the process of arranging an ethno-immersion (my expression, love it or hate it) with a household in the UK. An ethno-immersion means this: one of my colleagues will hang out with a household over a day. He or she will provide regular text, photo and video updates, by objectives agreed in advance.

Those of you selected to follow the household (via your computers or hand help devices) will be able to collaborate, as live, by asking us to ask specific questions, take specific pics or explore ideas. And updates will be generated roughly every hour in the form of digests depending on what we are observing at what time of day. In otherwords, followers will not be tied to their laptops or continuously interrupted by text messages.

We are looking for ten followers and I invite you to get in touch with me if you are interested.

I look forward to hearing from you.

UPDATE: Thank you to all who got in touch wishing to take part. We now have the required number of followers. Watch this space.
