…best part…towards the end…
The answers are getting harder and harder
And there ain’t no way to bargain or barter
But if you’ve got the angst or the ardor
You might faint from the fight but you’re gonna find it
For every challenge could have paradise behind it
And if you accept what you have lost and you stand tall
You might just get it back and you can get it all
So now you know why it’s a long way to fall
Yeah cause it’s a long way to fall
Had coffee with Diana Laufenberg today.
“I don’t want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don’t want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don’t want to do that.”

So I watched this TED Talk today. Don’t hate me.
It’s Clay Shirky. The title is “How the Internet Will (One Day) Transform Government“. Now you really hate me.
Go watch it. Then come back.
One of the burning questions in my mind over the past five years has been, “What if we had the right tools to actually do something?” Create something. Remix something. Not as individuals, but as a community.
What if we, together built a unit? What if we took the “MOOC” and turned it? What if 200 or 2000 people designed the course for 1 student?
I think Git may be the tool I’ve been looking for. “Cooperation without coordination”. I’m seeing an interesting combination between a wiki, rss, napster, and dropbox rolled into one. Friend me. http://github.com/ijohnpederson/Shifted-Learning/
Let’s kick these tires.
This is how you kill the Internet.
“Verizon believes that it’s entitled to the same kind of control over the content that flows through its network as newspaper editors exercise over what appears in their papers. That includes the right to prioritize its own content, or those of its partners, over other Internet traffic.”
