The New Liberal Arts: Call for Submissions

Our blogging colleagues over at Snarkmarket are publishing a book, and they’ve issued a challenge to the blogosphere: invent the new liberal arts.

The challenge, from their post on the project:

It’s 2009. A generation of digital natives is careening towards college. The economy is rebooting itself weekly. We have new responsibilities now — as employees, citizens, and friends — and we have new capabilities, too. The new liberal arts equip us for a world like this. But… what are they?

They’re accepting pitches for entries in the “course catalog” of this new world, and we’d love to see an avalanche of submissions from the Digital Natives community. You can add your ideas in the comments here!
