Well, this is certainly intriguing, Clint. Does this relate to Canvas?
As "[o]ne of the most cited scholars in history, Chomsky has influenced a broad array of academic fields [and is] widely recognized as a paradigm shifter who helped spark a major revolution in the human sciences, contributing to the development of a new cognitivistic framework for the study of language and the mind". (Noam Chomsky - Wikipedia ) So, in our context of educational and instructional technology (of which Canvas and all of instructure's products are apart of, as are each LTI and so on) I feel its fairly significant and worth noting that, if this is true, he seems to have only recently created and used his first power point presentation; this after decades of teaching. What Edward Tuft would say after learning this could be interesting too. Academics & learning, it seems to be what all of this that we are doing with Canvas is about. Chomsky is a figurehead of academics and learning, if you follow me. His choosing to try instructional technology out like this, again, seems significant.
See, I got this right away; but then, I am a fan of Chomsky. His incredible influence came without the use of many of the tech tools we tend to take for granted! He delivered his messages (or instruction) the old-fashioned way, so to speak. So for me, that little meme spoke reams about my own philosophy - the technology is not the instructional delivery, it is just a tool to deliver instruction.
A video/animation worth watching.
