Balancing Social and Internet Learning

Having taken my thoughts to a close group of friends to look over and (potentially) destroy, several counterpoints to my hypothesis on Our Relationship to Learning have arisen that I think warrant a response.

Consider this response to the advantages of harnessing human questioning over Internet questioning.

What might be the most important [advantage] is that you get human-to-human contact and connection, which is becoming harder and harder to find in this day and age. That personal touch, that human connection is one of the only things that keeps us from flat out becoming computers, and one of the only things that makes being human preferable to being a computer.

The October Song

For those of you who may not know, I used to write music. I suppose I still do, but music composition has taken a backseat to my continued pursuit of writing and exploring this city.

While the October Song is no masterpiece, I have decided to put is here (by popular demand) so that all of you who get it stuck in your head come October have a place to listen to it. Enjoy the slight midwestern accent of an 18-year-old me, trying her best to encapsulate October’s charm through harmony.
