    has a diary about community diaries up right now.  I mentioned this place there

    What are you reading? on Friday mornings
    What have you got to learn? (or teach) on Saturdays

      This is a community diary for today, but maybe not always.  I'd like everyone to be welcome to participate and have voiced that sentiment, but some in the community think this is too specialized for them.

      Teacher's Lounge opens every Saturday between 11 am and noon. It's not just for teachers.

        I know that Heidegger is a touchy person for some, but this quote from Introduction to Metaphysics seems appropriate:

        Of course, everyday understanding believes that one has knowledge when one needs to learn nothing more, because one has finished learning.  No.  The only one who knows is the one who understands that he must always learn again, and who above all, on the basis of this understanding, has brought himself to the point where he continually can learn.  This is far harder than possessing information.

        This is what dkos, for me, is about.  

        Our great democracies still tend to think that a stupid man is more likely to be honest than a clever man. -- Bertrand Russell
