Our fearless Jim Hutchinson (CoLoCo Educational Director) recently did an interview with Binary Freedom. In this interview Jim talks about his recent Post that he did on his blog in response to an article in Discover Magazine by Jaron Lanier. A lot of you may have read this already or seen it on Digg.
