Here's a good wish I have for you for 2012. Turn off those digital devices and learn to live again.

Thanks to Dale Yost

Neat. I'm gonna play this to my students. (And I know exactly what they'll say, but I'll play it anyway.)

A propos, here're some words from Ivan Illich that have been haunting me recently: "The machine-like behaviour of people chained to electronics constitutes a degradation of their well-being and of their dignity which, for most people in the long run, becomes intolerable. Observations of the sickening effect of programmed environments show that people in them become indolent, impotent, narcissistic and apolitical. The political process breaks down, because people cease to be able to govern themselves; they demand to be managed."

I was hoping my parents never found out about this... But I can't live like this anymore; I can't live with hiding who I really am....
