A number of Goldblog readers have forwarded me this video of Peter Beinart speaking at recent General Assembly of Jewish Federations of North America. These readers are critical of Peter's assertion that Israel is, in essence, forcing a one-state solution on itself by continuing the occupation and settlement of the West Bank.

This paper , on a new definition of technological literacy , seems like an important complement to this conversation. 
The idea is to define technological literacy broadly, as a set of skills to think critically about how all tools can both help and hurt our bodies, our relationships, societies and the planet -- "technology as social ethics in action" and 
"nature as the ultimate source and setting for all our technologies"
