Point well-taken, especially from someone who teaches the history of technology! Many of us found Bush’s “left brain” approach remarkable, and we also talked about how non-scientists, including Otlet (lawyer) and Borges (author) envisioned a networked age before the more famous scientist.
Me too — I’m not really a Trek historian either, but I know the Enlightenment vision goes well with the show’s Last Frontier mentality. Deliberate, direct, or culture, it all flies together.
Recognizing the memex in the Enterprise bridge — and in the vision of Star Trek as a whole — is really fitting. Without being a trekkie historian, I would wager even a deliberate influence.

yes! Love the last sentence especially. I agree that digital media are different animals — ones that transform text, image, moving image, sound etc. in ways that amplify their impact and extend their resonance.
Great post. I think good teachers can leave deep impressions on their students. Actually a good teacher frequently becomes a mentor and a role model for future teachers as well. I think that if teachers were aware of this, this could be their incentive.
“As I express more of my individuality in the classroom, I am finding it somehow easier to see my students as individuals.”
I really inspired by this quote, It is away from the stereotype of the faculty instructors whose his/her head is full of knowledge but he/she has difficulty to transfer this knowledge to his/her student due this wooden facial mask he/she wear when go to the classroom
I also thought the Deel article was refreshing and freeing, in a sense. It is definitely challenging, though, to be comfortable enough in your own skin (and open to vulnerability!) to lead the class and not worry about what your students think. For me, it is also challenging knowing that these students will one day be my colleagues. This inspires me to try my hardest to create a positive learning community so that future citizens and “do-ers” in psychology will have the best foundation in this subject area as possible.
