Which application of drones excites or terrifies you the most?
I don't fear the drones nor do I fear how they might be used to hurt humanity. What I am concerned with is the failure of American Public Schools to recognize and accept drone technology. Years ago (1980's) I was a school board member. Our district was avoiding the introduction of computers to the curriculum. Sounds crazy today doesn't it? We had one board member who would not step into a classroom if it contained a computer (Apple II) He said there was no telling the damage that might be done to students who were exposed to a computer. For Kent a computer was an unknown creature. Waiting to attack our children. This is what I fear the most. Persons who only see technology as endangering humanity. Oh yes, that fear does exist. Our educational curriculum is based and operated on fear of the unknown future. We trust the past because we think we understand it. We educate for the supposed safety of history and fear what might happen to humanity if technology (drones) is allowed to flourish. But what must a child know and understand to just live 15 years from today? What wonderful and valuable things will be fathered by drone technology? Doubt me? Just read the comments on this posting. Do you see fear or hope?

Meg Jay: Why 30 is not the new 20
Little of what she said has much relevance to living your life. Her advice is what most adults over 50 well know They know it because they have lived it. And they know that you have to live it to know it. They know life is an unplanned mix of struggle and satisfaction. It just happens. In our teens or 20's we see the future as a vast empty plain Most set out to do something that looks to be fun and is available. Some choose to do nothing and see what happens. In later life we look back and apply a label to our perceptions of what has happened and why. The bad perceptions cover our failures. We shove these down in our personality and try to forget (repression). The good perceptions we sort of sneak in for all to see. Badges, sweatshirts, car decals, dropped reference to "when I was at Duke". Meg dropped that she went to UC Berkeley. She uses that badge to support her view of how to obtain success. My point is that life happens. It is not a well planned experience and all this talk is just talk. 30's are not 20's are not 40's are not 80's are just talk. By the way I bet Megs clinical professors at Berkeley are wondering how did she pass her therapy class. They taught her that Counseling is not telling the client how to think. Counseling is assisting the client to discover what is meaningful for them. She said, " i tell my clients three things". No, No Meg. That is not counseling it's just plain old Dear Abby advice giving.
