Atención communities-o quienes quieran serlo-: El nicho está abierto, hay que tener los ojos abiertos y oídos despiertos.  No se puede saber de todo, pero la silenciosa revolución del aprendizaje liderada por los cambios tecnológicos siguen abriendo posibilidades fascinantes a favor de la integración, horizontalidad y apertura de la educación.  Aquí hay sitio para muchos que quieran colaborar, aprender y ser parte de un entorno abierto.  Bienvenidos a la escénica del aprendizaje en el siglo XXI.  Qué gusto da vivir en él!
