Pedagogy of the Oppressed by Paulo Freire
Pedagogy of the Oppressed

brodie, March 14, 2008

Snow Crash (Bantam Spectra Book) by Neal Stephenson

brodie, March 14, 2008

Written at a time when most Americans had never heard of the internet, Stephenson was already exploring concepts like avatars and viruses in an in depth way. A great read, and a thought provoking story.
