"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."
-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties

Ever seen Trekkies? It's a documentary about Star Trek fanatics. In it, there's this dentist whose practice is made up with all sorts of ST kit. They wear Star Fleet uniforms. I thought it was the most horrible thing I'd ever seen.

Like letting Dr Billy Bob Joe Donny operate on your brain, only with toy phasers and tricorders along with their stethoscopes.

This is worse. While I'm all about finding new ways to reach kids to make them interested in learning, Jesus fuck, those kids are never going to have normal social interactions. Ever.
