The actor Richard Dreyfuss yesterday made stirring comments about how Apple's ability to make learning fun points to a crucial task for this country - how to continue the struggle against ignorance as a republic founded on democratic principles. The venue was a reception at Macworld Expo in San Francisco showing of a brand new John Lennon Educational Tour Bus, where six students from the School of the Arts in San Francisco spent a day making a movie with Dreyfus. They finished the project in the bus as the actor stalled for time, counting the minutes. Afterward I spoke with one of the students, Maya Lorton, and asked her how working on the Lennon bus had changed her life. All in all, a terrific event to kick off my week at Macworld. Special thanks to Francis Shepherd for alerting me to the reception.
