VT Blogs: Aiken Lecture Series

Posted By on Wed, Sep 28, 2005 at 10:40 AM

This is cool. UVM has launched a blog to promote its 2005-2006 George D. Aiken Lecture Series. The organizers of the series have this to say about the Aiken Lecture Series blog, dedicated to this year's theme, "Visioning the Future and Vermont":

Please feel free to use this site to actively participate in theconversation. We, the organizers of the George D. Aiken Lecture Series,want you to own the content of this site and have an active dialog withyour fellow community members. We are not attempting to direct theconversation or push out an agenda, just offer you a forum for exchange.

It doesn't look like it'll be updated very regularly — the last and only day on which posts were made is Sept. 23 — but it does provide an innovative forum.

The kick-off event for the series is a Sept. 29th lecture by Futurist Atul Dighe, who will address "The 5 Big Questions About the Future." The UVMers have posted the 5 questions on their blog, and they're asking folks to answer them however they see fit. I think it's an exciting and creative approach. I wonder if anyone will do it.

Thanks, Zephyr T., for the tip.

  • Turning Point Center Fights Addiction With Crafts and Community

    Burlington's Turning Point Center is a refuge for Vermonters who are trying to find their way out of drug dependence. In the stairwell leading to the center, a mural depicts a giant hand reaching down to a solitary slouching figure. Just outside the center's door at the top of the stairs, is another message: "You are no longer alone."
