This weekend, an email from Library 2.0 came in with a link to a fascinating interview with Steve Hargadon. Steve is the founder of Classroom 2.0 and co-chairs the event “Hack Education,” among many other activities.
Here is a quote from the article that got me thinking…
[aesop_quote revealfx=”off” type=”block” cite=”Steve Hargadon” quote=”So we’re at this moment historically, like you and I have talked about before, where most of the institutions that we have in our lives feel very much like they’re weighted towards the institution and not the individual. And that’s kind of a sign of a moment in a culture where people are going to say, "I want to live a simpler life. I don’t want to buy a car. I don’t want a house mortgage. I’m willing to live simply," and this has happened before, and it’s not the first time, but I think we’re seeing it pretty dramatically right now.” direction=”left” parallax=”off” size=”2″ align=”center” height=”auto” text=”#ffffff” background=”#282828″ width=”100%”]
