there has been a series of about eight meetings at the V&A in London on diversity, which I suspect is the same sort of thing as cultural landscapes, and really stunning was the session on the record, where almost none of the participants, having spent a million pounds of public money, seemed to know anything about record management!

Hope there will be some just use dewey in florence
