My son, Justin, Plato, Socrates and the Republic

My son, Justin, has always been a thinker.  He's good at digging beneath the surface and looking at the big picture.

Right now, he's finishing his B.S. in information technology at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) and he's doing an independent study on Plato's Republic which includes 10 different books.  He's really getting into it and he's helping me understand how Plato fits into ideas I've taken for granted.

But, a really cool thing that Plato couldn't do is that Justin is blogging about what he's reading.  He's using blog posts to sort out and share what he's reading and learning.  Justin understands blogs and he understands how to use them as a social networking tool.

His blog--the Confessions of an Undercover Geek--has been on the backburner last couple of weeks and he explains why--ten weeks worth of college chemistry in three weeks and most of it is online.
