Weekly Post: from Abada Abada

by

This week's entry comes from Jessamyn West's journal, Abada Abada. I liked her descriptions of the students in her technology class, particularly the line about "skunk essence."

I like to include stories of people learning to use technology in the newspaper — it seems like most technology reporting focuses either on a new product or service, or on how some people are just totally clueless when it comes to computers. I like to promote stories about people getting it, or trying to, anyway. I like to note those moments when the rubber hits the road, so to speak. I want to provide some kind of snapshot of this moment in our cultural evolution. Before long, everyone will know how to use a computer, the same way that everyone knows how to use a telephone. I think it's helpful to reflect on that learning process while we're in it.

Plus, skunk essence is kinda funny.
