The Beginning of the End….of the Beginning

We happy few, we band of students, can see the end of this semester’s struggle. Between us and a much needed respite lie terms papers, cumulative essays, and, FINAL EXAMS. What had started as a trickle of information masquerading as a stream of information has turned into a raging torrent of reading, thinking, writing, and reviewing. It seems, to this student rookie, that the entire semester has steadily risen in intensity and urgency.

Two major hurdles this week, followed by two more next week. This is what we signed up for, this challenge of succeeding in academe.

Stay tuned.

“Life’s hard, son. It’s harder when you’re stupid.” — The Duke.

Education is a companion which no misfortune can depress, no crime can destroy, no enemy can alienate,no despotism can enslave. At home, a friend, abroad, an introduction, in solitude a solace and in society an ornament.It chastens vice, it guides virtue, it gives at once grace and government to genius. Without it, what is man? A splendid slave, a reasoning savage. - Joseph Addison
The term informavore (also spelled informivore) characterizes an organism that consumes information. It is meant to be a description of human behavior in modern information society, in comparison to omnivore, as a description of humans consuming food. George A. Miller [1] coined the term in 1983 as an analogy to how organisms survive by consuming negative entropy (as suggested by Erwin Schrödinger [2]). Miller states, "Just as the body survives by ingesting negative entropy, so the mind survives by ingesting information. In a very general sense, all higher organisms are informavores." - Wikipedia
