"I was reminded once again that one way to look at technology is that is simply a device that amplifies and extends a natural human ability. The bicycle amplifies the leg; the telescope, the eye; the telephone, the ear. I am still trying to figure out what exactly the computer and Internet amplify." Doug Johnson Sept 6, 2005 blog post.
Doug is a school librarian, school technology speaker, writer and runs the Blue Skunk Blog, which I found recently when I was researching something else.
