  10. Since then I’ve spoken a few times about the idea

    that by narrating our work, we can perhaps restore some of what was lost when factories and then offices made work opaque and not easily observable. Software developers are in the vanguard of this reintegration, because our work processes as well as our work processes are fully mediated by digital networks. But it can happen in other lines of work too, and I’m sure it will.

  28. ds106 has given this me the conviction that I, at

    72, can make videos, that tell my story beautifully, thoughtfully, and truthfully. The community aspect gives me the security that, no how busy I am with other things, I can always "drop into" ds106 and continue to learn more. http://margaretherrick.com/blog/
