Show notes

Reflecting on the death of David Bowie, St Vincent suggests that “we have lost a hero, we have lost a friend”.

I felt something similar when hearing of Dai’s passing. I never met Bowie and never met Dai. With his passing, I was left reflecting upon the impact TIDE has had on my life.

I have listened to every episode, often sped up, but listened none-the-less. Although there were many of Dai’s arguments that challenged me and others that I disagreed with, his manner was always positive. I was always grateful for his openness and honesty. This is what I will miss the most and feel had the biggest impact on me as a learner.

My favourite memory is when he shared his failed job interview where he found himself standing on-top of a table. Priceless!

Thank you Doug and Eylan for compiling this celebration of Dai’s life.

Listened Episode 116: A Climate of Safety

Doug Belshaw and Dai Barnes discuss the development of social credit in China. Barnes shares how he got his students to think about this by creating their own social credit for the school space that steps away from teachers dealing with discipline and detentions. This reminds me of Google’s thought experiment associated with the human ledger.
