Steve:  This is fascinating.  I'm sure you were there but this caused  
me to think in a different way about seeing your students as  
collaborators - intelligence officers - in the business of creating  
the best learning communities possible.  An entire class could  
function on a blog and wiki with several central links to get things  
started.  All this positioned in a real world problem with real  
people in real settings.  Fascinating stuff.  Love to try it with my  
seniors who are student teaching and who have to implement the  
strongest collaborative work between and among their students as  
possible (to advance the leanring of all kids), often in an  
environment where teachers say it can't be done for 1001 reasons.  Ch.

Knowledge emerges only through invention and re-invention, through  
the restless, impatient, continuing, hopeful inquiry human beings  
pursue in the world, with the world, and with each other.
