This is an image of the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche’s typewriter. I always found the story of the effect his new typewriter had on his writing style a good example of the power of the technology to transform our thinking. I didn’t realize that Nietzsche was a technological determinist.
My name is Andrew Jevne. I currently work at a community college in Edmonton. Although my background is in online delivery, I am now a manager of recruitment and student financial aid. This is my ninth MET course and I expect to finish the program in the spring. It’s been a blast.
I can honestly say that this is one of the MET courses I have been most looking forward to taking. I think the analysis of the historical effect of changing communication tools on our thinking processes is fascinating.
I’m looking forward to working with everyone.
