Solicitation for Feedback…

October 3rd, 2006 2 comments

Over lunch on Sunday, talking with Matt and Debbi, we discussed or television blogging obsession. (okay.. maybe it was just my obsession, whateva, it was like three days ago.. okay?)

Last year on Misplaced Keys, I tv-blogged quite a bit, and enjoy re-hashing what I observed on a show, and kibitzing a bit on strategy and such for reality shows like survivor. And Debbi, did a bang up job in the comments taking up my AI slack…

But anywhoo… I need to nail down what you, my 4.5 readers, would like to see. Do you more prefer the recap with little or no commentary? Commentary, and bringing on the teh snark! or a mixture of both, and leave it up to me. Or maybe I just need to get over myself. Anyways… vote!

One of Protein Wisdom’s guest bloggers, Dan Collins points to an interesting article on “minimally invasive education.” The introduction to the article explains the premise (a fascinating skinner box experiment).

An Indian physicist puts a PC with a high speed internet connection in a wall in the slums and watches what happens. Based on the results, he talks about issues of digital divide, computer education and kids, the dynamics of the third world getting online.
