upon reading the two aricles i felt a sense of satisfaction. a feeling that i had aquired some knew knowledge to look at things differently. the article by gershenfeld was very interesting in that it brought me to think about things in a different light. the ideas os man made versus machine made was a very interesting concept to grasp. under the world conditions that we live in, it seems that everything is machine made these days and no one seems to think about the things that must be man made. his discussion of fab labs was very interesting. the "...almost anything'" continuation of text i found to be very cool, the screambody sounds ridiculously cool.
i found the kahn article hard to relate to the gershenfeld article. i think i found this to be because the kahn article was more of an intense reading and the information was hard to grasp. i suppose the two articles relate in a sense of their analysis of things in existance today. in the kahn article, i found the analysis of the university very enjoyable to read but found that when trying to relate my feelings after reading the two articles together, i could not really relate them. also, i did not seem to understand the ending of kahn's article and how that was to tie the article together.
