"Patent is only for the rich ... "

... so it seems like Filipino inventor Daniel Dingel (not Dingle) would rather not file patent applications.

Nobody is perfect

... but do mine eyes deceive me or are we running out of proofreaders?

OCM What?

This is perhaps one "job" that part of Mike Wesch's video was talking about: “When I graduate I will probably have a job, that doesn’t exist today”. Well at least in some other parts of the world.

Read Jeremiah Owyang's discussion points about online community managers. Thanks to Dave Peck for the link. And to Mon Duremdes for the "provocation".

Forget about fossil fuel...

Water could be all you need.

Which reminds me, whatever happened to Daniel Dingle?

Twenty years ago, I'd probably be thrown in prison ....

... or worse, be committed to the ward, for things I've been writing about education lately.

Now it's good to be getting some validation from the nixty.com. I don't even know the guys behind it, but what the heck.

I like that bit about Disrupting Education: Flattening the Ivory Tower. It seems to predict that in 6 years, education is going to be radically different. Don't know if I should hold my breath, but it should be worth the wait.

Thanks to Michael Feldstein.

Am I spamming myself?

I don't think so.* Just connecting to Steve Hargadon who says that "Web 2.0 is the Future of Education". Again, it seems like we're in good company. Thanks to George Siemens for practical connectivism.

* I could be wrong though.
