My professional writing is mostly about how the technology that we use affects the way that we perceive reality. I am also interested in how the use of electronic media is changing the definition of knowledge, and I wonder how thinking and teaching will be affected by the new media that we are using. I think that our descendants will organize their minds differently from the way that we organize our minds: I wonder what will be gained, and what lost.
