Underground water is being pumped so aggressively around the globe that land is sinking, civil wars are being waged, and agriculture is being transformed.

Oh, I can imagine. Upload speeds are iffy for us sometimes too! But I just upload still images: not millions of them all in a video. :-)

Elegantly carving new epitaphs on old headstones is a form of graffiti art that really should exist.

Here's a proposal from Scandinavia: mandatory schooling for senior citizens.

Let me take a step back for a moment, and try to look ahead.

On the one hand we have some cops that torture and/or kill black men and women. We also have some Trump supporters that gleefully beat on protestors.
On the other, we have scared anti-Trump protesters, some of whom see violence as a logical response. And now we have at least two people who have shot cops.

Are we on the first step of a rising cycle of domestic conflict?
Or will we look hard at what that means, and not take the next steps?

Yes.
Cf historical examples, like the 1980s tearing apart of former Yugoslavia, or Italy and Germany in the 1930s.

Story
Tagline
Researcher, futurist, speaker, writer, consultant, educator, homesteader. Author of THE NEW DIGITAL STORYTELLING.
Introduction
Now: I research emerging technologies for teaching and learning.  Social media, mobile devices, gaming, digital storytelling - I write, speak, teach, blog, tweet, get interviewed, and consult about these, then write some more.

Home: I live in Vermont, up in the mountains, half off the grid, with my splendid family: Ceredwyn (wife), Gwynneth (daughter), Owain (son), and a bunch of animals.

Then: born in NYC.  Childhood and first schooling on Long Island.  Later schooling in Michigan.  English professor in Louisiana.

Always: geek.  Love books.  Lift weights.
