Are there not as many people interested in Flaneure and the connectivist approach because it is not as incentivised in formal education because it is harder to measure? Do we have so many people that are interested in fixed pathways that have clear achievable outcomes because they have been conditioned to expect this and are rewarded for it?

It was a strange bug. I started the Hangout 'now' at noon eastern, but when I finished it said it starts at 7 pm. I corrected the time and reset it to noon, which make the link available. Very odd.
