1. What is the Cloud? What is it good for?

Big image

We're already cloud-based.

You already use the cloud. Any emails, videos, messages or tweets that you read, watch or send aren’t housed on the computer or mobile device that you accessed them on. They sit on the cloud. And, in the same way that we access and share email, video and social media through the cloud, we can also access and share software, research, documents and student work.

If all this technology tires you out....

From "HOW TO BE A POET" By Wendell Berry

Make a place to sit down.
Sit down. Be quiet.
You must depend upon
affection, reading, knowledge,
skill — more of each
than you have — inspiration,
work, growing older, patience,
for patience joins time
to eternity....

...Breathe with unconditional breath
the unconditioned air.
Shun electric wire.
Communicate slowly. Live
a three-dimensioned life;
stay away from screens.
Stay away from anything
that obscures the place it is in.

There are no unsacred places;
there are only sacred places
and desecrated places...

(May you find elements of the sacred in the mundane day-to-day of work and may you have a blessed school year)
