"I'm sure there will be better and better tools coming out all the time."

Kirby mentioned one. PDFs. They allow you to forgo killing a tree.


"And you'll be just as successful in blocking his work and influence as you have been with that of Dan Meyer."

They don't have any influence. How much more blocking do you want? You sound like Kirby and his imaginary world where Synergetics is a thing.


"Here's a shock: tools can be used in loads of ways besides those for which they were primarily designed."

And that has nothing to do with the point. Are you making a Geico commercial?

Point -> Tools are pedagogically inert.
