Back in familiar territory for me, as a librarian. Thus the coziness of the post. I read through and listened to a smattering of the links for this week. How funny to be directed to the new ACRL Information Literacy Framework. It’s a bit of a controversial document still within academic libraries – stirs up […]

On one occasion, however, a friend and I were right in the middle of building an amusement park with blocks. We moved our small hands as delicately, but swiftly, as possible, […]

Nelson part 2: of teachers and curricula

by

In the time between writing Computer Lib/Dream Machines in 1974 and being interviewed by Gardner Campbell in 2014, Ted Nelson seems to have become a bit more sympathetic to teachers (or at least a bit less inclined to attack them/us directly).   In 1974, he presents teachers as holding considerable power in, and power to shape […]

Motivation

Whoops, time got away from me this week. So, I won’t be doing justice to this week’s content. I listened to the interview but didn’t really delve into the reading. The speaker this week rubbed me the wrong way, which always makes it a bit harder to get something out of a talk. Or makes […]

#Openlearning17 — Ted Nelson

by

Photo of Computer Lib, Dream Machine
  Repost of For the Wholiness of the Human Spirit (2015) Re-watching Ted Nelson’s eulogy for Doug Engelbart last week reminded me of one of the many (many) reasons Nelson’s thinking about computers and society resonates so powerfully with me. Mourning the loss of one of the most pivotal stars of the new media revolution […]
