On technology and Anthropology graduate students

The graduate students, none of whom owned an iPhone, were at first somewhat restive about this plan until we arranged for each of them to have an iPod touch, which brightened their mood. One of them discovered an application in which you adopt an island, name the tribe that lives on it, and then act as their god, which seemed suitably anthropological to everyone, and they settled down to work. http://www.salon.com/technology/iphone/index.html?story=/tech/2010/06/07/apple_wwdc_control
