Pssst... "Mr. Mayer" is a SPY

It's awesome to hear that the Life is Good unschooling conference video got some use. Now that i'm currently in St. John's surrounded by over 100 schooled 16 year olds and their adult chaperones, NOW and only NOW do I realize that it perhaps wasn't "normal" for me to take pictures and movie clips and edit the stuff together without EVER ONCE delineating between kid and adult. NEVER. Didn't cross my mind. Here there is a huge line drawn between the two - as if we all didn't know this already - but I just want to smack people in the head and leave the laptop open in a strategic spot with the Life is Good video playing for them to see. I'm currently surrounded by really great people, really bright and mature and committed 16 year olds - all of whom accept and encourage a massive line being drawn between the two groups. In fact, the term "boundaries" is the most over-used term I hear around here. "They gotta know their boundaries". Gotta "control" them. Gotta be controlled. Huh wha????

Okay - I've never used this term before, but I gotta say... "I love my TRIBE". And I miss them.

And I didn't even bring a camera to this thing!?!
