Spiritual Pilgrimage Online

UPDATE: ahhhhh. . . . how rude of me to get this introduction soooo wrong.

Heidi just arrived. And its Dr Heidi Campbell, having completed her PhD on internet community and theology in 2002. She now teaches new media and religion at A & M in Texas. Its her second time in Orkney and she will be teaching next week in Oxford with Pete Ward. Heidi blogs at When Religion Meets New Media and I think we have connected a few times through the internet but never face to face.

ORIGINAL: TWO interesting people flying into Orkney today. Jamie Oliver to meet with Orkney foodies and Heidi Campbell to meet with me and discuss internet communities.

Heidi is a PhD student and has written this interesting document called “A New Forum for Religion: Spiritual Pilgrimage Online” [PDF]. She will stay until Friday and, I hope, help me to build a chicken coop for the laying hens that arrive this weekend.

If I see Jamie at the airport, I will be sure to pass on comments from the angry students up here who are sick of the school menu.


Andrew Jones launched his first internet space in 1997 and has been teaching on related issues for the past 20 years. He travels all the time but lives between Wellington, San Francisco and a hobbit home in Prague.
