Sugata Mitra: Build a School in the Cloud
This is more than inspiring it is revolutionary. We cannot continue to teach children to live in a world that doesn't exist, we must equip them for the future by empowering them to function in a social environment that is without walls. The purpose of the brick-and-mortar institution is not to educate the mind in content it is to education the body in social settings; those social settings have changed. We are I a global community that cannot be sustained by people whose brains have been conditioned to the containment of a box. We must facilitate education in a virtual environment that conditions the mind for growth without walls. I do take exception to the innuendo in this film that teachers are unnecessary; they are very necessary, they are the grandmothers. We must have the guide that can discern the truth and allow us to learn from the past.

If the cure for mortality is found within your lifetime, would you go for it and become immortal?
I thought I already was immortal. In the purest sense, if matter is neither created nor destroyed, am I not piece and parcel of the world before me? Have I not been formed from the dust of kings and knaves long dead? In the vein of linage I carry the genetics of my parents and parents, parents, parent a my children carry on me. Perhaps the least enduring is the notion of my psych, me thoughts, my character but he question really is; does more time make me more memorable, more influential, more important? If I do not treat today as valuable; what would eternal life add??
