@frances – Yeah… i certainly couldn’t take the position that i take and suggest that someone else is ‘wrong’. George’s has done some excellent work, and the story that he is telling has had, i believe, a very positive effect on people’s conception of education. It’s a story that has very much influenced my own work, it doesn’t happen to work for what i’m trying to do. Thanks for the reminder.

@martin – The pattern stuff is particularly interesting… in the expert position. I think what i’m coming to terms with is that I’m currently interested in the non-expert version of learning. The vast majority of the things i will ever learn… i will never be an expert at (if anything).
