When we started out with our unschooling journey, we felt a little like knights in shining armor freeing ourselves from our own self-imposed shackles. Hence the name of the blog.

Amazing possibilities always

http://www.ted.com/talks/pranav_mistry_the_thrilling_potential_of_sixthsense_technology.html  
A fellow homeschooler shared this brilliant link with our local homeschooling group.  It is mind blowing and way out there.  I got goose bumps watching this.  I love the world of technology but always wondered if the world around us and the tech in our palms would interconnect.  This is it. 


I also want to pay homage to Manish Mehta.... a friend of Ravi's who passed away recently.  Many years ago Manish was asking his friends (Ravi and about 7-8 others all from the same College in Pune) to think about helping him in a new venture... putting up computer terminals in airports so everyone could access email anywhere.  this was around 1997-98.  They laughed, kidded around and did not take him seriously.  Of course... within a year or so... life changed...the internet became so important to people that it was indeed made available everywhere possible. 


After watching this video i was reminded of Manish.  When someone proposes something supposedly impossible, supposedly way out there... think before saying 'nah... no way'.  Anything IS possible.
