Good Homeschooling Day

Kata­ri­na went out with me and we drove around, tak­ing pic­tures of things.

OK, that sounds vague, but real­ly, Kata­ri­na enjoys tak­ing pic­tures of things, and these things are high­ly ran­dom yet they all have cer­tain qualities:

  1. They’re fre­quent­ly old, cracked, rust­ed, or broken/trashed
  2. They can be cast in some sort of jux­ta­po­si­tion­al light
  3. They are fre­quent­ly inter­est­ing even when very close up to them

We had a long dis­cus­sion about gen­tri­fi­ca­tion and what that is after tak­ing pic­tures of some places that were being remod­eled and gen­tri­fied in par­tic­u­lar­ly bad parts of town.

We had a lot of dis­cus­sion, as well, about economies, espe­cial­ly the econ­o­my of Sec­ond Life, and also the econ­o­my of such vir­tu­al worlds as pre­sent­ed in Cory Doc­torow’s short sto­ry, Anda’s Game, which was read as part of the Podi­o­book “New Media Voices.”

All in all, it rocked the house.
