Danny Boyle’s Isles of Wonder: Paradise Lost?

  1. An excellent elaboration of Jennings’ Pandaemonium. I tweeted that this must have been the inspiration during the event and gave a link to wikipedia, but this audioboo link is more interesting. http://audioboo.fm/boos/248230-humphrey-jennings-pandaemonium
    I do have Pandaemonium as I use to teach a course in the history of technology. The interest in this as inspiration, and surely Cottrell Boyce used it in exactly the right way by interpreting it for their event, suggest to me that we should create a wiki provide access to the quoted resources with or without commentary?
    Would you be interested?

  2. Just seen this having written my own (short!) comment in a post. I had that Jennings book too and seem to have lost it! I did not see this Observer piece so will catch up with that too.
