Dear next new thing-ers:

This all sounds cool -- but, in an obligatory old-guard reply -- what's 
the rush?  Do we want to create a music theory-based TED world of sexy 
but not-road-tested (and in the case of most TED lectures, hopelessly, 
romantically, pie-in-the-sky) solutions that last as long as a Tweet?  
Tonal Theory in ten Tweets?  Check out 
for cautions ("meet the new boss . . . "), and also check into Dilbert's 
attempts at working from home for more cautions on flipping classes -- 
and that's before online Netflix!! 
(http://search.dilbert.com/comic/Working%20From%20Home).  I'm an 
ipad-toting technology geek, but there's something to be said for a 
well-considered thought process.  And don't forget to check with your 
Provost on promotion requirements, which may not include "change the 
world by Tuesday."

Otherwise, godspeed!

Dave Headlam
