E.O. Wilson's Life On Earth

Various authors, E. O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation, Apr 27, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Gary Lewis writes of "a joint effort between Apple and the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation to create an introductory online biology course for middle/high school students." You can see a smple of it here (The Diversity of Life). Lewis writes, "Wilson's new general public book sounds interesting. Here's a quote from an interview with him in New Scientist: 'We have created a Star Wars civilization but we have Paleolithic emotions, medieval institutions, and godlike technologies. That's dangerous.' ... His hopes? "I think we are going to find our way out of this and we are going to do it with education and science." Well, maybe. It'd be nice if this were true." It's all marketing of course, but points toward where text and media merge in the future.
