If you don't know, TED (Technology, Education, Design) is a group that hosts events across the world where speakers come to speak.  Some of these "Ted Talks" are then uploaded to their site and a select few to their YouTube channel.  They are always really interesting, and informed.  Here is a thread to upload them.

"Even though we've identified the gaps, the whole class will then move on to the next subject, probably a more advanced subject that's going to build on those gaps. It might be logarithms or negative exponents. And that process continues, and you immediately start to realize how strange this is. I didn't know 25 percent of the more foundational thing, and now I'm being pushed to the more advanced thing. And this will continue for months, years, all the way until at some point, I might be in an algebra class or trigonometry class and I hit a wall. And it's not because algebra is fundamentally difficult or because the student isn't bright. It's because I'm seeing an equation and they're dealing with exponents and that 30 percent that I didn't know is showing up. And then I start to disengage."

 

"So the idea of mastery learning is to do the exact opposite. Instead of artificially constraining, fixing when and how long you work on something, pretty much ensuring that variable outcome, the A, B, C, D, F - do it the other way around. What's variable is when and how long a student actually has to work on something, and what's fixed is that they actually master the material."

"We will soon create intelligences greater than our own. When this happens, human history will have reached a kind of singularity, an intellectual transition as impenetrable as the knotted space-time at the center of a black hole, and the world will pass far beyond our understanding." -Vernor Vinge, 1983

Jaron Lanier's talk from a day or two ago was so popular that TED decided to upload it early:

the system isn't the way it is because it was made free for everyone, it's the way it is because give the chance people find ways to hack any system to their advantage and we live in a culture where consumption is what leads to the providers profit/advantage. To increase you advantage you increase consumption, and to increase consumption you hack the system to stimulate demand, and demand is controlled by the social pressures and beliefs of the culture. Hack beliefs and social pressure you control demand, and control demand increases consumption and as a provider of consumables gain profit and advantage.

 

you don't fix that by making information a consumable with costs to consumers that can be controlled and manipulated by markets.


Live content within small means. Seek elegance rather than luxury, Grace over fashion and wealth over riches.
Listen to clouds and mountains, children and sages. Act bravely, think boldly.
Await occasions, never make haste. Find wonder and awe, by experiencing the everyday.
