I read the text from Lance Strate's "The Flight of MinErvA'sOwl," which was his Presidential Address to the Second Annual Media Ecology Association Convention. It's a great piece which, while clearly rooted in the occasion, makes a number of excellent observations about media ecology and media ecologists from Plato on. The title, a play on Innis' essay "Minerva's Owl" from The Bias of Communication, claims Minerva, Athena, and her owl as patron symbols for media ecology. I also like who the address ends with a call for media ecologists to remain active in education, that education is part of media ecology.
