Brandon Gregory, A List Apart, 2018/10/16
I was at the 25th anniversary celebration for the Inclusive Design Research Centre on Saturday, and it raised in my mind the question of how broadly we should think of inclusivity (because it was baically an open recenption, and I am just not comfortable at open receptions - I need structure).

Learning Design - Natural vs. Machine

Learning Design - Natural vs. Machine
This, I think, is a central principle: "Any design for a learning tool that continues the idea of separation will fail." What sort of separation? Among others, "topics, subjects, expertise."

I wish I could say that the headline is a joke, but it appears instead to be an all-too-real example of an IP regime gone off the rails. More power to those people ignoring the law and using PI for their own purposes. More...
