Dead Link[edit]

The link to the one hour lecture on the bottom is dead. Can a replacement be found? --91.106.44.117 20:04, 29 November 2008 (UTC)


Requests[edit]

I remember a quote from Mr. Burke: "My shirt is plastic". I think it was in one of the original Connection series, maybe espisode I, where he's talking about all the things made of plastic. Can someone find it? Thanks! 202.142.210.190 11:01, 27 September 2005 (UTC) Connections, Episode 8, "Eat, Drink and be Merry" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-bz7nYGxgo

"Electronic community"[edit]

Was he the first one to name the "electronic community" (now more popularly virtual community) in 1985? Sbwoodside 01:36, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Knighthood?[edit]

I don't know what criteria the Queen uses for bestowing Knighthood on her subjects, but to me James Burke (science historian) shall always be "Sir" James Burke. This person has impacted my life in such a profound way and I feel sure so many other folks' lives as well, that I feel he deserves an elevated status. Does anyone know if this situation has been considered or discussed?
