This blog is focused on uses of technology in (higher) education. Formerly called Purely Reactive (as opposed to predictive), its admittedly odd (former) title bespoke an impatience with the fortune-tellers and pseudo-prophets technology (not least of all academic tech) abounds in; but it also over-relied on irony, an unstable substance in the online environment. Hence the name change to something more politically correct and positive, if not without its own unstable and multivalent meanings. This blog has a parasitic relationship with the CUNY Academic Commons and is essentially a running commentary on the hopes and prospects for that larger project, especially as it bears on uses of academic technology in CUNY. Information on the author can be found in his profile on the Commons.
