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

In the City this afternoon to lecture on Fontenelle's "Digression on the Ancients and Moderns," Kant's "Sketch of History With A Cosmopolitan Purpose," and DuBois's "Of Our Spiritual Strivings," with a little Wildean coda. If I had gotten more than three hours of sleep last night I daresay I would be pretty excited, since these are all such rich and wonderful texts in their different ways,but as it is I'll be teaching through a headache and the buzz of exhaustion. Insomnia really is the pits.
