Tech Task 8: Inspiration From a Far

with 4 comments

While reading through some new blog’s that I have re added to my google reader account (because it decided to disappear on me one evening :s) I stumbled across Victoria A Davis’  blog at http://coolcatteacher.blogspot.com/.  I read a lot of things that this “cool cat” bloger was writing about but one particular post caught my eye and it has taken my mind to a very enlightened and positive place. 

Victoria posts about the dead sea and uses it as a brilliant metaphor.  ” The Dead Sea takes in water but there is no outlet to the sea.  Thus, it is salty, bitter, and generally just… dead.

People who are a dead sea are always taking, using up things and become bitter.

Dead Sea people never give anything to another person and never share.

 I have a chalkboard (I know they are a thing of the past :)) in my kitchen, and I write a new quote every day up on the board, and I wrote this up there immediately after I read that.  I couldn’t help it.  Victoria is a very open minded and well spoken individual who has some very positiveattitudes about technology.  Victoria sais “don’t be a dead sea”, and instead allow your learning to be transparent and help each other to share knowledge.  Because knowledge belongs to nobody in particular.  It belongs to everyone.

  1. I like that quote. Its true knowledge really belongs to no one and everyone. The dead sea is a bit scary… probably the name!

  2. The post you did about The Dead Sea is really interesting. It looks as if the rocks are alive, but old. Where did you find it and how did you know about it?

  3. The Dead Sea looks dead. It looks like a giant sea surpent jumped into into it and made it lonely and dreadful. It is still beautiful though. Where is the Dead Sea located?
