I think the video is interesting. There is a lot information we can learn from it and we can use it to make sure we have good sources for any research projects we have to do.
It is a very interesting video and I agree with him. I am writing a research paper about Social Media and Internet for my ENG class and I think it would be great to use his video as one of the five sources that I have to use since he has very important information about these topics.

I really appreciated Mr. Rheingold's insight about internet literacy and crap detection. As I looked at his website I was struck by how much his mother, who was the art teacher at his school, understood the creative potential of the individual. He said, "After the pin-drop quiet, pin-neat order of our home-rooms, the happy chaos of Mrs. Rheingold’s room was like travelling to an altogether different dimension. Mrs. Rheingold’s philosophy of teaching art was that all human beings are creative innovators, have a need to express ourselves creatively, but many — most — people are shut down at an early age.".
I am truly inspired by Howard. The free spirit of sharing his personal life and the knowledge he shares is cool. Jenny I love it when you share your excitement. I realize I have a lot to learn. I am a beginner that just learned to turn turn on a computer. I love to research and compare. Yes investigate. Thank-you. Below is the articles website. Enjoy Jenny and classmates. God Bless.

He attended Reed College in Portland, Oregon, from 1964 to 1968. His senior thesis was entitled "What Life Can Compare with This? Sitting Alone at the Window, I Watch the Flowers Bloom, the Leaves Fall, the Seasons Come and Go." With all of his credentials he sounds very well educated. He appears to be a very interesting and complex man.

I found it particularly interesting that Howard has been involved in the online community for so long, including starting to publish articles on the Internet since 1993. In that year, he was featured in a BBC production, "The Electronic Frontier"
