    Jaron Lanier - Learning by Experience & Play (by lwf)

    Take aways from this great talk

    Don’t study a subject become the subject. Technology is a tool not the source of learning or being. Our brains have evolve with a legacy, don’t get too comfortable with technology, we should not lock in digital habits, we are interested most when it is about us not something outside of us….

  2. occupyedu:

I am a Teacher. I taught student who had dropped out of high school because it wasn’t working for them:
Big Class size
Endless standardized tests
Charter schools more like military schools
All the education “reform” of the 1% are destroying our public schools.
So I came to Zuccotti Park and #occupy and I’ve given every day of my life to it since September 17th and I’m just getting started…

Alleviating the ills of an unjust system = okay; questioning the justness of that system = bad. Commentary unneeded.

Steal Like an Artist: Creativity in the Age of the Remix

On engineering creative and intellectual stimulation:
There’s an economic theory out there that if you take the incomes of your five closest friends and average them, the resulting number will be pretty close to your own income.
I think the same thing is true of idea incomes. You’re only going to be as good as the stuff you surround yourself with.
