Are We Puppets in a Wired World?

But while we were having fun, we happily and willingly helped to create the greatest surveillance system ever imagined, a web whose strings give governments and businesses countless threads to pull, which makes us…puppets.

Whether this distinction turns out to matter may be the one piece of information the Internet cannot deliver.

You’re not learning. http://blogs.kqed.org/mindshift/2011/09/more-doodling-makes-for-better-learning/ But research published in the latest edition of the journal Science challenges the anti-doodling stance. It contends that not only can doodling help students learn, but that drawing is an important tool for scientific discovery.
