Sorry if that last post on impassibility was a little obtruse. I promise a few more, and at least one truly accessible one!
Things I've been reading include:
Seth Godin on The coming meltdown in higher education. Part of my critical nature is always to be engaged in meta-analysis. So, learning languages, I'm driven to study and read about the process of learning languages. Involved in higher-ed, I'm always interested in understanding the phenomenon of higher ed. Godin has some interesting insights.
Kevin Kelly on Get a job as a piracy snitch. KK is always good for a read, has very useful insights on technology and society. His portrayal of copyright enforcement as protection racket in this post gave me a new way of seeing it.
