In our culture, talking about the future is sometimes a polite way of saying things about the present that would otherwise be rude or risky.

We need to talk about TED

But have you ever wondered why so little of the future promised in TED talks actually happens? So much potential and enthusiasm, and so little actual change. Are the ideas wrong? Or is the idea about what ideas can do all by themselves wrong? I write about entanglements of technology and culture, how technologies enable the making of certain worlds, and at the same time how culture structures how those technologies will evolve, this way or that. So my TED talk is not about my work or my new book – the usual spiel – but about TED itself, what it is and why it doesn't work. The first reason is over-simplification. At this point I kind of lost it.

What is TED? So what is TED exactly? What is it that the TED audience hopes to get from this? I'm sorry but this fails to meet the challenges that we are supposedly here to confront.

Senior Congressman Seeks Adjuncts’ Stories on Working Conditions – The Ticker - Blogs

House of Representatives’ education committee has introduced an electronic forum that seeks to gather stories about the working conditions of adjunct professors and to assess how the growing use of contingent faculty members affects students and higher education in general. The electronic forum “is an opportunity for adjuncts and other contingent faculty to inform the Congress about what’s happening on the ground with higher education,” said Rep.

George Miller of California in a written statement. “There is a huge lack of understanding of what it means to be in the adjunct world.” He added that Congress should be taking a “serious look” at the phenomenon of adjuncts’ struggles at a time of rising tuition costs. The forum’s website allows visitors to submit comments that may be posted online, submitted to the Congressional record, or used in a report from the committee’s Democrats. Return to Top.
