Why is everything going wrong? Bad attendence at the Olympics, Zuckerberg is missing a phone, and the Phillies have hit rock bottom.
There is something in the air of Italy that is making them combative. It may not just be that they are the defending World Cup Champions getting ready to score again in South Africa. The government and legislation authority are fighting technology against two of the biggest names on the internet: Google and Facebook.
Oh, hey there! I see you are online again. Must've been a tough day, huh? Where are you coming from? Work, walking the dog, taking the kids to dance class, just had dinner with the family? Wait, none of those things? You're coming from Facebook? Well, then you've been online for longer than I thought. Did you get anything done around the house today or have you been sitting in front of the computer since you got home? Maybe you're just tired and haven't been going to bed on time lately. Oh, you say that's because of the internet too? Hmm, this might be a problem.
I sat in a meeting recently when they promoted the idea of social skills, or cooperative learning, as the main purpose and vehicle in creating a truly engaging and successful educational environment. It is sound educational theory that has been developed in the last thirty years and so it is not ground breaking, nor does it need any explanation with jargon or data. What has disturbed my sleep and led me deep into the realm of humanist philosophy is the idea that humans are in fact social creatures. For just a little while, I would like to ponder this notion and see if the idea of promoting a social agenda is truly an American ideal or a way to prevent the masses from exerting their energies to reach individual achievement.
