Dear all - Happy New Year/Decennium !!
The publication problem has been fixed, and the maps should be visible now. Don't hesitate to contact me if you experience any problems in navigating them.

This cloud describes how to download and launch Conzilla, and how to access the Conzilla models of the different sessions of the workhop TEL in the context of technological, societal and cultural transformation that took place in Garmisch Partenkirchen Nov 30 - Dec 1, 2009.
Conzilla can be downloaded from http://www.conzilla.org . Click on Download (in the menu to the left) and then click on the yellow button Launch (under the heading Conzilla 2.2). Conzilla needs Java version 1.5 (or newer) to function properly. If the Java system doesn't start, you must install a newer version of JRE (Java Runtime Environment). This can be done by clicking the "Java Runtime Environment" link in the text above the yellow Launch-button.
When you have installed and started Conzilla, you will see a yellow map called Startmap. Just above the map itself there is an address-window called Context-Map URI, If you copy the following "Conzilla-URL" :
into this window (and then hit "Return"), you will arrive at the entrance to my Knowledge Patch, connecting about 800 published Conzilla maps. When you see this map, it's a good idea to bookmark it. Then it will be easily accessible whenever you open Conzilla. You can also make this map your starting map, by clicking on "Settings" (in the top menu) and then selecting Set as startmap.
The maps I created at the workshop are available by double-clicking the Alpine concept at the top left of this map (which is called Ambjörn's maps). This takes you to the Conzilla map called Participants at the Conzilla-URL
By right-clicking on the concept TEL in the context of transformation you can navigate to the different sessions of the workshop.
How to navigate and bring up information in Conzilla is described under Navigation at
http://www.conzilla.org/wiki/Doc/Navigation It is a good idea to keep this page open while running Conzilla, so that you can directly test what is described there.
