I was looking for a reference I'd seen about the postitive impact, the mere expectation of humour has on one's well being at Tara Calishain's Knicknack Drawer at researchbuzz. com.

NOTE: If you haven't heard of Tara, or Goggle Hacks, expect to hear more about both in the next while. Her book, with Rael Dornfest, subtitled 100 Industrial-Strength Tips and Tricks "streeted" in February.

I got to thinking about hacks and humour, and having fun and landed on the Game Theory page at following a wkipedia reference in one of the PDF files -- Learning object design as an emerging paradigm -- from David Wiley referenced in yesterday's post.

I'm intrigued by the notion of fun and games as "learning tools" for self-directed, 'net-based learners. Technical difficulties are inevitable in "pick your abbrev./acronym for 'net-based" learning; therefore, you better provide some yuks along the way.

To wit, a golden oldie:

Did you hear about the dyslexic, insomniac agnositic?

The poor soul was up all night wondering if there really is a dog?
