I just finished reading Wikinomics. It is an excellent book about Wikis and collaboration. It leaves you with a real empowering sense that we may be able to control our own destiny through small groups working together. It is becoming clearer and clearer that we can not wait on our governments to take action. They are far to busy with their own self interest. I'm looking forward to working on WikiEducator to become a part of a collaboration effort to help educate our children. I have seen first hand how politicians, bureaucrats and unions can all loose sight of the goal to educating our children in pursuit of their own interests, it is an unmitigated disaster!
Peace Corps: Guyana
I have had the luck to live a spoiled life. It is just how it is being a white man in the US. When I realized how hollow that life is, I started seeking meaning. When the only reason I'm well today is because of where I was born and the color of my skin, I knew I had to use those gifts to help others. I can't live in a big shinny house or drive an exotic car down the paved life that is America. It is not that I'm any wiser or kinder then my country men, it is the agonizing boredom of the material life that drives me on. So I venture forth floundering around the globe seeking meaning and fulfillment. I can only hope to stumble across it before I die. I am not the first or the last to seek meaning in life. I realize that all I can do is keep seeking. So I go forth to Guyana tomorrow to see what is over that horizon.
I walked gently across the frozen earth, thankful that it is firm. After so many days at sea the firmness of land is challenging. I wonder about the world as if it is my own. I seek a home but space is all I find. Lost in the universe yet able to know where I am is so confusing. I seek the journey that ends in discovery but doubt that it is possible. Does a journey end? If I know more then when I start what will I know at the end? Life is a series of journeys, so I go forth once again, seeking nothing, finding nothing, but always moving.
