Thanks Dave

Sometimes I enjoy Dave Winer's perspectives on stuff, and sometimes I get annoyed and toy with just deleting his blog from my RSS feed (I've even done it a couple of times, but then gone back). I'm glad to be in a reading-Dave phase now, since it yielded a nice piece of autobiographical writing today (I'm glad I went to college). Here's his last paragraph:

The thing is, you don't know in advance if going to college is going to be worth it, so you don't know if you should or shouldn't go. Like I said, everyone has to decide for themselves. But for me, not only was it worth it, but it gave me the life I wanted. I wanted to be creative. I wanted to make a difference. I wanted people to know me, and I wanted to be self-sufficient. I didn't like what the adults were doing, and I still don't like what most of them do. But some of them were looking out for me, and I was lucky enough to find them when I needed them.
This inspires a silent but heartfelt thank you to those adults who looked out for me, all of them now gone...
