The Unreasonable Man

“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”

George Bernard Shaw

I have to rescind the notion that I am working with interactive text in order to save the world or to improve academia since it’s become quite clear that there is not a demonstrable pain-point in academia which the academics feel and therefore it would be a momentous and arrogant to try to ram my ideas down their throats. 

I will therefore come out and proclaim that I am working on interactive text because it is my personal belief and passion that it is indeed useful and powerful but more to the point – I want it.

I thank Livia for her dialogue today in helping me understand this. I will do what I can to produce systems and design tests to see if they really are more powerful (to be defined) in helping academics understand (to be defined) and communicate (to be defined).
