Finished Grading

Finally all my grades are in. The last class I did was an honors class mostly of freshman engineers. I had them read Langdon Winner's book The Whale and the Reactor and it worked better than I had feared. I asked them on their final exam if Winner's predictions that computers would not enhance democracy and equality had proved true in the 15 years since the book was published, and most of the ones who answered that question said they had.
