Connecting Future Thoughts

by

I noticed many similarities between how I am thinking about my thesis for my inquiry project and how my classmates are thinking about theirs. In regards to his inquiry project, Colin states, “My paper will not so much argue a side of an issue as it will argue there is an issue.” This is how I am […]

Future Thoughts

by

I feel that the topic I have chosen to do for my inquiry project has opened my eyes a bit more to the world around me. I have always been one to keenly explore international news, but for whatever reason I never dove deep into investigating the Arab Spring. I guess I just assumed- naively, might I […]

Nugget for Computer Lib/Dream Machines

by

Computer Lib/Dream Machines by Theodor H. Nelson Almost everyone seems to agree that Mankind (who?) is on the brink of a revolution in the way information is handled, and that this revolution is to come from some sort of merging of electronic screen presentation and audio-visual technology with branching, interactive computer systems. This passage speaks volumes to me when I think about my […]

Mostly, I […]
