The Revolution’s Cliff

Posted by on Aug 2, 2008

So here we stand. All of us. Together. We’ve shuffled up to the edge of the cliff, and the timid are leering over with great trepidation, the curious have started toeing pebbles over the edge, and the impatient, emboldened ones are heaving boulders over just to see what might be hit below.

It’s more than just something we can see. We can feel it. Something is in the air, and we all know it. There’s change coming, but no one can predict exactly what shape the change is going to take. It’s exhilarating and terrifying equally at the same time. Our culture is about to shift. Learning is about to become radically different, and beneath it all, I have this sneaking suspicion that technology will be the impetus. Keep throwing the rocks and peering into the haze below. It won’t be long now until we start seeing something real taking shape down there.
