Weekend Ed. Quote ~ February 26

“I’ve learned to balance my personal and professional lives like a nurse triaging emergency patients: by determining which role requires my attention right now. Borrowing an analogy from author James Patterson, I imagine that I am juggling a set of balls representing work, family, friends, and spirit. Each ball is made of either rubber or glass, and the material changes with the circumstances. If I drop a rubber ball, it bounces back. However, a fumbled glass ball may chip or even shatter. The trick is knowing when a ball is rubber and when it’s glass.” ~ Emma White, The Art of Triage

As I see it, code literacy is a requirement for participation in a digital world. When we acquired language, we didn’t just learn how to listen, but also how to speak. When we acquired text, we didn’t just learn how to read, but also how to write. Now that we have computers, we are learning to use them but not how to program them. When we are not code literate, we must accept the devices and software we use with whatever limitations and agendas their creators have built into them – Douglas Rushkoff, Digital Literacy Advocate – Codecademy

“At the beginning of each semester, I tell students that my economic theory course will deal with positive, non-normative economic theory. I also tell them that if they hear me making a normative statement without first saying, ‘In my opinion,” they are to raise their hands and say, ‘Professor Williams, we didn’t take this class to be indoctrinated with your personal opinions passed off as economic theory; that’s academic dishonesty.’ I also tell them that as soon as they hear me say, ‘In my opinion,’ they can stop taking notes because my opinion is irrelevant to the subject of the class — economic theory.” ~Dr. Walter E. Williams, Economics for the Citizen
