  • Hey Alec, love what you've done with this presentation. I developed a little table of distinctions to help me explain the conditions - similar to the one on slide 17, kind of a then/now view of what has/is shifted/ing. http://technologyinprevention.wikispaces.com/file/view/SM-TradDistinctions121409.pdf Would appreciate your thoughts if you have the time.
