Yesterday I wrote about EyeWire and fold.it and Tara left a comment asking if I’d seen this TED talk:

Okay. And now to Sugata Mitra.
Okay. Here’s the reply I left on Tara’s comment: Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! Unbelievable and fabulous and beautiful and stunning. Turns the “HOPE” light on full power for me. Thank you!
Seriously. How do I adequately express how in love with this man’s brain I am today? With his heart, his mind, his teacherliness, his trust … Wow. Yes, anyone who used to read my blog back when I was teaching knows that I’m a bit of a floozy, that I fall in love a LOT — with all of my students, with new ideas, with great books, with math teachers.
Still. This man? Is everything.
