I’m not known for my patience, in fact we have been arguing all morning here at DTLT about this very topic. But a video I found on YouTube just might help be re-think my rash and untempered approach to life, and instructional technology more specifically. Riffing on this quote from the the Book of James, “Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord,” Shawn Boonstra offers a much needed antidote to the hustle and bustle of modern day life.
Here’s a quote culled from this three minute video:
We used to think that dial-up internet at whopping 56k was a technological marvel, and now we get frustrated when our high-speed internet gets hung up on a video once in a while…You see, some things are simply worth waiting for, and the Second Coming is one of those things.
All I have to say to Shawn is thanks for putting the Second Coming in technical perspective for us all.
I’ll be looking for the meditation rocks on your desk after break!
