Read this blog

As I hope many in our QEP group have been doing lately, I have been reading some education/writing/connectivity blogs.

By far, the best that I have read is titled "Helicopter Lessons," Mark Pesce's June 14 blog on childhood development and "hyper-connectivity"--

His two or three blogs leading up to this one are also top-notch, but in this blog he brings his thoughts more to bear on education.

Pesce's site is called The Human Network, and it has proven to be a rich source of ideas for our explorations of connectivity and networking. Please, everyone, check it out!!

  1. Good call, Tom. Mark Pesce is one of my favorites. He introduced me some 3 or 4 years ago to the concept of co-presence, the emerging ability of people to be constantly present in a person's life through electronic communication networks. I think we may well be realizing the old notion of a crowd of angels (or perhaps demons) circling about us like a cloud of electrons, instantly available for communication. Of course, we olders usually resent the intrusion of these electronic angels into our face-to-face conversations with youngers. It's why so many offices have signs telling youngers to turn off their cell phones. Those signs are doomed for extinction.
