Finding out what we do not know

| May 12, 2011

Time… Once upon a time, in 1981 or 1982…  Robbie and I spent an afternoon trying to network his Sony CP/M and my DECmate using a long serial cable… It did not work but we educated ourselves into much we did not know we did not know (“null modem”??) while wondering why we were trying to know that.  Thirty years later we keep doing it: discovering how much we do not know! (and justifying why it might make philosophical or political sense to get to know it).

I look forward to continuing to search with Robbie for what we should keep figuring out as our contemporaries continue making exciting possibilities for future educators.
