Using Technology to Deepen Democracy, Using Democracy to Ensure Technology Benefits Us All

I've been too preoccupied with my teaching intensive to blog, and at this point even my twitter-like one-liner pseudo-blogging has been too taxing. I've only been paying glancing attention to politics and world events and can't even begin to be bothered with the serial inanities of my pet futurologists -- whenever headlines or reporter voiceovers manage momentarily to intrude everything seems basically terrible and idiotic. Presumably I'll be drawn back into the effort to understand and impulse to ridicule in a few weeks, once this summer teaching relentlessness recedes a bit.
