Denise Kako's curator insight, November 30, 2015 7:41 AM

I like this article but through the title «Virtual Visits with Experts In The Digital Human Library» we can understand that its author Leigh Cassell remains in the common perception of Virtual wich consists in opposing Virtual to Real as something tangible, touchble. I invite the community to see Pierre Levy's perspective of Virtual in «Qu'est-ce que le Virtuel?» to better understand why this visit in the DHL is not Virtual since people are connected to each others as well as to the experts and the resources.
