Advantages of Intentional Learning

At the end of my last article, I mentioned that the fundamental advantage to my constant research was that “I am never unaware.”

While that melodramatic statement made a great stopping point for my rant, I want to assert that there are many rewarding effects to living intentionally with technology. To preserve my pride and the drama of the last post, it seems a new post is the best choice to enumerate these benefits. I’ve always been a sucker for a dramatic exit.

This American Life – Three Miles

What can I say about this piece? This is an absolutely gripping piece of radio storytelling that sheds some much needed light on wealth disparity in our education system. The themes hit hard, and the story of these kids always hovers somewhere in the back of my mind. I guess the only thing I can say is… I’m sorry. This listen won’t be enjoyable.

Women’s Equality Day

I originally wrote this for International Women’s Day 2015, but in honor of Women’s Equality Day 2016, I’m going to suck it up and post this piece of writing. I’ve been afraid to share my thoughts on this subject for years, false visions of my male readers leaving me behind, never to hear my words again. But my words are not for them, or even for you. They are for me, and for women, and for us.
