So far this class has proven to be very insightful and interesting. Its the only class that i’m taking this semester that isn’t the traditional lecture-based class where we are told to write a paper or regurgitate information for an exam. I really like that the class is this way, its much easier to think and the fact that there is a “No answer is a wrong answer” policy makes it a lot more enjoyable.
The readings that we have been looking at are very interesting and I think they connect with a lot of the things that we look at and use in society today. The fact that the two articles that we have read so far are from the 1940s-60s really baffle me because what they include are almost predictions of what is present today. Below are two great progress report blog posts that I definitely agree with.
