I walked into this store and really liked this jacket I’m trying on. I did not realize it but remembered that I lost 35 pounds this year. I didn’t make any changes but little adjustments; cutting soda, walking more, and got a gym membership to work out with my friend/coworker. The motivation as simply to have more energy to be a more effective designer. You have to take care of mind and body. BTW I got the jacket. Happy New Year!
Don’t teach kids how to code. Teach them art, curiosity, and an imagination to use code to make their ideas tangible.
“The phrase, ‘technology and education’ usually means inventing new gadgets to teach the same old stuff in a thinly disguised version of the same old way. Moreover, if the gadgets are computers, the same old person becomes incredibly more expensive and biased towards its dumbest parts, namely the kind of rote learning in which measurable results can be obtained by treating the children like pigeons in a skinner box.”
—Teaching Children Thinking, by Seymour Papert, 1971
Ideas are very precious to me, and when I see ideas dying, it hurts. I see a tragedy. To me it feels like a moral wrong. It feels like a moral injustice, and if i think there is anything I can do about it, I feel it’s my responsibility to do so. Not opportunity, but responsibility.
