Great Wall

Originally uploaded by jutecht.

Back in Shanghai after 3 wonderful days in Beijing highlighted by a 4 hour walk on the Great Wall that both my wife and I are paying for today. I did not touch a computer or get on the Internet all 3 days, but felt more connected to history and the Earth then I have felt in a long time. My wife is always giving me a hard time about being connected to the computer…all I have to say is: I’m not the one who SMS my sister back in Arizona while on the wall. 🙂

Gotta love technology!

You can find more pictures of our trip at our flickr account.

I started blogging in 2005 and found it such a powerful way to reflect and share my thinking about technology, this generation, and how we prepare students for their future not our past.

    You’re not going to believe this, but those of us living in the the UAE cannot access http://www.flickr.com. I guess someone has been posting pics that are not very muslim friendly. I wonder what this will mean for middle eastern countries who block sites during the 2.0 web revolution. If it is information instead of specific web addresses that people will be accessing in the future, can you screen specific informaiton or do you have to block everything on a given site? If the latter is true, what impact is this going to have on concervative countries?

  2. Reece,

    I feel your pain. I try to stay away from mentioning China to often as I’m afraid they will block my site. They already block whole web addresses where information might be painting China ia a bad light. I can not access any free blogging sites such as blogger.com, blogspot or any others, they are all blocked. Sorry about the pictures man…I’ll find a way to get some to you.

    I’ve been wanting to post about what this means for Web 2.0 but am afraid that I won’t be able to access my own blog if I raise to much of a fuss…so I’m left thinking about it, and not writing about it.
