Tim Berners-Lee, creator of the World Wide Web, says in his book Weaving the Web:
"We ought to be able not only to find any kind of document on the Web, but also to create any kind of document, easily. We should be able not only to follow links, but to create them - between all sorts of media. We should be able not only to interact with other people, but to create with other people. Interactivity is the process of making things or solving problems together. If interactivity is not just sitting ther passively in front of a display screen, then interactivity is not just sitting there in front of something 'interactive'."
To which Sebastian Fiedler says:
"So, why is nobody in the eLearning realm reading Tim Berners-Lee? How come that so many people see the Web mostly as a large distribution and retrieval system? They see designers, creators, domain experts, etc., on one side ... and loads of consumers on the other. Hm... if I think about it... that last sentence reminds me somewhat of schools..."
Yeah, if instead we can figure out how to trigger rampant creativity and spontaneous cooperation - that would be something. Life is too short to leave the design of it to an elite.

MimiI do blog!! I love the sense of comtinumy and finding wonderful mothers like you who love style, life and God! Blogging is truly an outlet. I am thankful that people read my blog, I hope they can laugh, cry and find the beautiful in the mundane. However, if no one read I would still do it because it is something that I love to do.
