Emily Dickinson &

Endow the Living -- with the Tears --
You squander on the Dead,
And They were Men and Women -- now,
Around Your Fireside --
Instead of Passive Creatures,
Denied the Cherishing
Till They -- the Cherishing deny --
With Death's Ethereal Scorn --
- Emily Dickinson

We live in a world where there is more and more information, and less and less meaning. -- Baudrillard.Simulacra and Simulation (found in the Educational Technology Journal)
