    Default On Craft

    Surfboards may be the vehicle, but it's a nice view of one perspective on industrial evolution and the affect of technology on individuals and work, and the different foci (all legitimate) that can be found within any area of human endeavour vis-a-vis automation vs. "by hand". While I have much respect for the long time professionals I equally value the dedicated amateur and backyard hacks; that's where innovation frequently comes from, and there is something essentially human about being able to build a serviceable device by yourself, even if it won't win any contests. Dave articulates that perspective better than I can. Teaching is, after all, not entirely a one way street.
