My dream is to set up an independent institute for the study of the human sciences, one that's outside the current academic world but that is in dialog with it. In a couple of months I'm going to just declare it into existence and then set about raising funds, etc. Basically i"m here on a reconnaissance mission, to see the state of the art in online education and look for potential fellow travelers.
As for food, my dream isn't concrete enough for that, yet. But I'd like something that crosses the best of France, China, Japan, and African-America. Heck, at the moment I could go for some sweet potato pie and crispy sea bass.
