Computers are simply a necessary and enjoyable part of life, like food and books. Computers are not everything, they are just an aspect of everything, and not to know this is computer illiteracy, a silly and dangerous ignorance.   I think that this really hits home with today’s society. I see a lot of people…

The introduction to this book was daunting! After reading Augmenting Human Intellect, when a disclaimer was given to this book, I was completely prepared to be bored out of my mind. But I wasn’t! The opposite, actually. I found that Ted Nelson’s “Computer Lib/Dream Machines” was actually quite easy to read and more entertaining than […]

In both general areas, though—within media, and designing media—it seems to me that the creation of organizing constructs is the most profound problem. In particular, the organizing constructs must not distract, or tear up contents. An analogy: in writing, the inventions of the paragraph, chapter and footnote were inventions in writing technique that helped clarify […]

“Schools as we know them all run on the same principles: iron all subjects flat than then proceed, in groups, at a forced march across the flattened plain. Material is dumped on the students and their responses calibrated; their interaction and involvements with the material is not encouraged nor taken into consideration, but their dutifulness […]

“By “fantics” I mean the art and science of getting ideas across, both emotionally and cognitively. “Presentation” could be a general word for it. The character of what gets across is always dual; both the explicit structures, and feelings that go with them. These two aspects, exactness and connotation, are an inseparable whole; what is… […]

It was hard to pick one paragraph that stood out to me. I really enjoyed reading this since he wrote so friendly and abandoned the more scientific writing of other computer literature. It was more relatable and appealing for someone like me who enjoys seeing the visual representation of a concept. I also liked how […]

I wanted to choose from a couple of nuggets, but I choose this one…. “It is intended to fill a crying need. Lots of everyday people have asked me where they can learn about computers, and I have had to say nowhere. Most of what is written about computers for the layman is either unreadable… […]

Nugget 4- CL/DM

It was actually quite difficult to choose a single nugget, but I’m going to stick with: “Now, there is a trap here. Just as the gas pedal, clutch, gearshift and brake merge psychologically, any control structure can merge psychologically. Clutch and gearshift do not have, for most of us, clear psychological relevance to the problem of […]

“At no previous time has it been possible to create learning resources so responsive and interesting, or to give such free play to the student’s initiative as we may now. We can now build computer-based presentational wonderlands, where a student (or other user) may browse and ramble through a vast variety of writings, pictures and...

  “Curricula themselves destructively arrange the study situation.   By walls between artificially segregated “studies” and “separate topics” we forbid the pursuit of interest and kill motivation”.  written by Ted Nelson. I found this paragraph somewhat questionable.  Although I agree with Nelson that “like political boundaries, curriculum boundaries arise from noticeable features of a continuum and […]
