the hut where the internet began

Given the cultural and economic influence of the technology that enables you to read this right now, you should probably read "The Hut Where the Internet Began."

Let's start a conversation about this.  Too often we read history-- or any text in school-- without realizing that we are actually characters in the ongoing story.  What do I mean?  Well, some of you will read this article and think, "Cool, some guy had a great idea."  That response is a tragic waste of time and brain power.  What if, instead, you read this article and begin thinking about the problems and opportunities that surround us right now, and suddenly realize that you yourself are sitting in some version of a hut AND READING THE EXACT SAME ARTICLE (either follow the link to Bush's piece or go directly here)?  What will you think and create, and what story will learners read about you when you encountered the ideas that sparked your passion and moved you to action?

Looking forward to your comments!
