I couldn't agree more with what you have said. And I'm not a Luddite!
However, my studies in technology and philosophy have me questioning
technology every step of the way. You read enough Marxist, Postmodern
literature and everything becomes a conspiracy. So, although I do not
think I made the bandwagon comment, I apologize just in case. I would've
only meant it in the most McLuhanesque fashion.
Which brings me to a question: May I cite to your e-mail thesis in my
paper? I was the one who ask people to tell me their opinions of
ArtsEdNet. My paper is a critical examination of the ArtsEdNet from
Your practical perspective would balance the theoretical
stuff nicely. It's always nice to remind your reader that the real world
exists in a critical academic paper and you said it so eloquently. The main
reason I ask is because you didn't leave your name on your message.
Always Questioning Technology (I love that closing. Danielle from SWT
better copyright it before I steal it.)
