I was interviewed at the Kansas State Department of Education’s annual conference in April 2007 following my spotlight session on “Copyright, Liability, Cyberbullying and Social Networking.” The video of this interview is now available on the KSDE conference podcast page in both Quicktime movie and MPEG-4 formats. The interview runs 16 minutes and 4 seconds. Other interviews with keynote and spotlight speakers are also available, including one with the inspirational Dr. Lorraine Monroe! (She was the conference keynote speaker, and I obtained permission to share the recording of her message as a podcast– check that out too if you haven’t already!)
The books I mentioned during this interview included:
– “Raising Self-Reliant Children in a Self-Indulgent World: Seven Building Blocks for Developing Capable Young People” (H. Stephen Glenn and Jane Nelsen)
– “Technopoly: The Surrender of Culture to Technology” (Neil Postman)
– “Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business” (Neil Postman)
– “The Future of Ideas: The Fate of the Commons in a Connected World” (Lawrence Lessig)
These books and others I’ve read (and recommend) are included in an Amazon book store of recommended books I created recently. I have added this as a sidebar link on my main homepage under “links.”
