An anthology of interesting posts that passed through my reader this week:
- Dostoevsky’s 1984 Saved Him from Our Brave New World (from John Dyer at Don’t Eat the Fruit): reflections from education and learning author Neil Postman on Orwell and Huxley’s contrasting views on information overload.
- Who Cares About Raw Data? (from Jesse at OpenScriptures): even though it may not be immediately apparent to end-users, data is the lifeblood of applications (a frequent Blogos theme), so it matters a lot.
- On the horizon: Google Wave (from Mark Hoffman at Biblical Studies and Technological Tools). I agree with Mark that Google Wave (which isn’t quite released yet) bears watching as a really interesting new development for collaboration and communication.
