Fire and Knowledge--Children, Computers, and Education

Joshua makes a great point about the $100 laptop project at MIT. I commend his comments. But more than those, I commend the entire essay,
Informing Ourselves To Death, which he links to by Neil Postman. I've always admired Postman's thought as a critique of culture and technology. Since I "do technology" for a living, I'm very cognizant of the role it plays in my life and the life of others. Postman's words give great balance and perspective for any specialist.
