Welcome to Scroll Number 1: | virtual … physical | . You’ve journeyed between worlds to be here today. How was your trip? It’s one we take for granted as we move seamlessly between awaking in our homes each morning, tweeting updates while on the bus to work, instant messaging throughout the day with friends and colleagues, eating lunch with mates while keeping an eye out for messages on our phones, uploading blog posts and photos that will be seen by any number of people we will never meet, and chatting into the small hours of the night.
Scroll Number 1 invites you to pause here for a moment and think about what happens as we cross that divide.
