You will immediately be challenged to offer up your standpoint on technology. The challenge will come in consideration of two opposing ideals – technology is “an inherent component of human evolution” (Kelly, 2005) – or a slippery slope toward “ubiquitous subservience to giant computers” (Lanier, 2015). This is a chance to free your mind. Regardless of you standpoint you will then be forced to play – tasked with developing a website for a business you may want to set up in the future. This is a chance to be creative and innovative. At the end you will get a chance to reflect on everything you have done. And asked a confronting question, “tell us why you think you are still breathing”. This is a chance to tell a powerful story. This course is built upon the idea that the opposite of one great truth may very well be – just another great truth. When you enroll you enter into an eternal discussion on where that truth may lie for you.
