I am deeply sad from the news: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/23/obituaries/ursula-k-le-guin-acclaimed-for-her-fantasy-fiction-is-dead-at-88.html
I am currently reading her recent book No Time to Spare (and indeed, she hadn't--but neither have any of us).
She was able to communicate to me in a way that few authors are. And the world is better for her having lived and worse for her departure.

This is an excellent background to a discussion of education that is truly progressive and truly innovative. Recently, a student stated to me her view that all of university was about to become redundant in the face of so much available information and skills-demonstration on the Web. In a general context of receptivity and respect, I pointed out that while such information and skills-demonstrations would be useful in terms of already-discovered items (KSAs) and where such items were generally beyond dispute (a very small domain, in my personal view), it might be harder for students to find out how to discover, how to probe the limits of our knowledge, without a university learning context. I would miss the context where students ask me questions I find hard to answer!

I just watched a video about how encryption works in our everyday lives and thought others might really like it. Check it out at https://mzl.la/encrypt. I hope you enjoy it!

I have been impressed with the function of Duolingo overall. I am also excited to see all the new languages that are available to learn for free. Thanks +Duolingo!
