Podcast Commentary

Raw Materials for the Mind, pages 280-292

Podcasting is something I have a definite interest in, but there doesn't seem to be the required technology at my school. I've never done it or heard it either. The chapter didn't really substiture for a firsthand experience, and I don't really have the time to delve into right not.

Facing the Future [and the downloading thing]

Facing the Future... This was well written and insightful.

The other downloading thing... I was bored by that music downloading debate/crisis a long time ago. I've never downloaded; don't know where to go, what to do, haven't missed it.

Raw Materials for the Mind, pages 258-280

Some mildly interesting discussion on the purposes of various web-sites. Guidelines for what to consider in creating a website. This is really the least interesting section of the book that I've read through; or the section that seemed least applicable for me. Change has always constant, but it hasn't been so damned fast. We do "seem to have less and less time to deal with more and more change leading to a relentless assualt on our comfort zone."
