This Is Water - David Foster Wallace - Part 1

courtesy of http://www.bravenewlife.com This is part 1 of a commencement speech given in 2005 by David Foster Wallace.
Drew Roberts's insight:

What is education and how does it relate to a good life?

DFW's rhetoric pulls us seemlessly from cynical humour towards earnest cosideration of everyday mindfulness.

I found this to be a lot of bark with no bite.  But that's may be because I'm already sold on the need for digital literacy in education, and am much more interested in reading about specific content, frameworks, curriculum, etc.
