We choose the moon

Commentary by Stephen Downes

I was actually around in 1969 and watched the moon landing myself. Just looking at this site sent shivers up my spine. We have too few great noble projects today. "Celebrate the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11's landing on the moon with this real-time interactive recreation of the Apollo 11 mission. (Currently in the pre-launch phase). You can even follow the misson on Twitter." You know, I hear those objections, to our wind-power program, to Obama's health care plan, to open education and free learning, and the rest, and I just want to look at these people and say we choose to go to the Moon and make the arguments about ROI and effectiveness and data-supported decision-making just go away.
