You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?"

Don't let fear convince you that you're too weak to have courage. Fear is the opportunity for courage, not the proof of cowardice.
McCain, John (2004, September). In Search of Courage: Finding the Courage Within You. FastCompany, 51-56.
In the search for character and commitment, we must rid ourselves of our inherited, even cherished biases and prejudices. Character, ability and intelligence are not concentrated in one sex over the other, nor in persons with certain accents or in certain races or in persons holding degrees from some universities over others. When we indulge ourselves in such irrational prejudices, we damage ourselves most of all and ultimately assure ourselves of failure in competition with those more open and less biased.
J. Irwin Miller, Chairman of the Board (1951-1977), Cummins Inc. From 1983 letter about diversity at the company.

Thougths on teens and things...proto-thoughts
The last few days I have been thinking about a list of things and noting several with a mental asterisk that I need to blog about it when I have time..later this month maybe. Here's the beginnings of the list:
- The unacknowledged dichotomy between our desire to protect teens and to be protected from them.
- including issues of the social construction of adolescence, and
- the lack of knowledge of adolescent development in both the general public and youth researchers.
- How some articles attempt to transform qualitative research from the specific to the generalizable.
- The quick fix of banning something, like blogging, rather than:
- understanding the nuanced underlying issues, and than
- finding the teachable moment
- The tyranny of capitalization for all thing "Internet" and "Web."
Well this morning I found that danah must be having some of the same angst as she has posted a lengthy discussion on the culture of fear of teens that is permeating mass media and particularly in relation to teen online interactions. See her post growing up in a culture of fear: from Columbine to banning of MySpace. I agree with what she is saying broadbrush and will address the particulars in a future post.
