Intensive "summer" education options?

Hey there,

I am curious ...
* If I had a seasonally appealing destination
* Great isntructors
* Great courses relevant to your total education as a designer
* at a reasonable but profit generating price

Would a junior or mid-level designer be willing or better wanting to
dive into an intensive Interaction Design Studio/Seminar?

I'm thinking 2 weeks is the magic number (Yes, I know family folks
won't probably do this as they have well families; but heck, bring
them a long!) where people can take an educational vacation with the
goal if being immersed in studio foundations for interaction des

Article: "Is Google Making Us Stoopid?" from TheAtlantic.com

"Incidentally, I found the article too wordy for the ideas it described,
but emotionally satisfying (just like I found 'War and Peace' too wordy,
when I have read it long time ago)."

I totally agree. I found myself wondering whether it was done
intentionally - as though the author was providing an example of the
types of articles that we are inclined to glean for meaning.

Contextual awareness on mobile apps

I've been watching the growth of contextual awareness in mobile apps
recently.... There are several GPS, positionally aware apps... but I
wonder where else this contextual awareness can go? What else do
people want to know about their social networks beyond location
awareness? Events and shared interests are well traveled... In
general, the more (reliably) connected mobile devices become the more
opportunity for contextual awareness of the world around me...
