Technology, or Not

As I contemplate transforming a traditional, classroom-based history course into an online course, I was impressed by this op-ed on technology in the humanities from the Chronicle of Higher Education. It's not programmatic, but it is fairly thoughtful and more importantly it adopts, vis a vis technology, the optimistic skepticismthat I think should form the core of a humanist's intellectual life - and which distinguishes us from "them," those who unapologetically and unreflectively advocate technology as the be-all and end-all.
