Eglantyne Jebb (1876–1928) was a British social reformer and teacher who co-founded Save the Children in 1919 to relieve the effects of famine in Austria-Hungary and Germany. She drafted the document that became the Declaration of the Rights of the Child (Mulley 2009) [Wikipedia entry].

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882) was an American essayist, lecturer, philosopher, and poet who led the transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century. He was seen as a champion of individualism and a prescient critic of the countervailing pressures of society, and he disseminated his thoughts through dozens of published essays and more than 1,500 public lectures across the United States. On July 15, 1838, Emerson was invited to Divinity Hall, Harvard Divinity School, to deliver the school’s graduation address, which came to be known as the “Divinity School Address”. [Wikipedia entry]

Emerson loved nature and outdoor activities but also appreciated solitude indoors: “the solitary knows the essence of the thought, the scholar in society only its fair face.” [Ralph Waldo Emerson House]

I am personally attracted to the emphasis on mobile devices, digital preservation, social media, gamification, lecture capture and retrieval tools.
