Mahatma Gandhi, (attributed)
Indian ascetic & nationalist leader (1869 - 1948)
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950), Man and Superman (1903) "Maxims for Revolutionists"
You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?"
George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950), "Back to Methuselah" (1921), part 1, act 1
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.

MacArthur Foundation Series
Ok, now I'm bummed. My paper proposal wasn't accepted for the MacArthur Foundation Series on Digital Media. Oh well, I have another use for the abstract so that is cool, but it would have been cooler to get in the volume. So who made it through review?

Submission for the MacArthur Foundation Series on Digital Media and Learning
My submission for the MacArthur Foundation Series on Digital Media and Learning is on it's way to review. Cross your fingers and think good thoughts for me...only good ones work you know. LOL
That's one more thing marked off the to-do list. And one more day closer to my "adventure," as Kaye Trammell called my trip.

The Performativity of Naming: Adolescent Weblog Names as Metaphor
Well the NCA paper is finally done. It's been an interesting journey to this completion. I now have as many, in truth more questions than I did when I started. I will be interested to hear your comments.
The Performativity of Naming: Adolescent Weblog Names as Metaphor (pdf) is available through this link or under Links to my conference papers online on the left sidebar.

IT&P article hits the stands today
Today when I was on campus Elijah greeted me with a copy of IT&P he received earlier in the day. Very cool to hold my first journal article and preprints. I probably looked like a 5 year old at Christmas. The citation follows, I'll post a link to the database version when I have it. There is also a link from the sidebar, and repeated in the citation below, to the Working Paper version.
