This act usually is followed by more blog posts, as I try to make sense of my learning, but so far this hasn’t happened.   The first week stimulated the usual flurry of enthusiasm and creative thought.  Then I crashed—my creativity dried up and I […](image)

If you have been following my blog you know by now that I am a 66 year old academic–born and raised in the 20th century where the printed word reigned supreme and all knowledge worth knowing could be found in books.
