Another Groundshifting Opportunity - Can we make Education free?
Education is based on two misunderstanding: -scarcity of the expert ; was true 5000 years ago , is NOT true today what is scarce is not know how , but teaching/coaching methodology -need of discipline , in terms of restricting people into space and time , to "force" them to learn. ANother false assumption today Both assumption are self-replicated by human ego and illusion of conquering the mind of childrens , before they get in control : the foundation of both Islamic , and Christian method. and all of the "religion" of the world. Today , with NO scarce know-how , no need to restrict space and time , and technology ubiquity we can design a NEW education , or , better , learning process , through which knowledge should be offered , for free , to everybody that , voluntarely want to acces it.!! This will boost learning productivity , create some inequality , BUT , if we will make concepts of LEARNING METHODS (NOT TEACHING !!!!!) available to everybody , this will change the landscape. The new Mozart of this world will always bubble up . And the Einstein of this world will mature , later , (ALbert was graded insufficient in math , when he was young..) Learning is a step function , not linear , and the illusion of the school system is false , and dangerous , in fact it ruin the life of thousands.. The re-design effort is humongous , and will probably take centuries........ or months We should follow the web model. Millions of part time learner supporter , can do better than few professors. GO and visit the Masie Center web-site. and Good luck. Dott. Prof. Alberto Bazzan

Do you think China will be the next Superpower? Really?
HI ....Chris I would suggest you go, and live , for few weeks , in China (be careful , as NY is NOT AMerica , Beijin , or Shanghay is NOT China.. it is JUST a town of China. COnsider some simple reality.. CHina is the ONLY place in the globe , where a Province (not a nation , or a state ..!!) has 300MIllions people.(US) CHina was used to manage large and spread communities roughly 1000 years ago. China understand power , USa does NOT!! Difficult to digest , but basic thruth!!! China is welll positioned to become a world power , both economically and militarly (militar power do not need democracy , unfortunately) If money give power ..... China own USA debts , and they can recall their money whenever they want .!! COnsequences?? Immediate USA bankruptcy , probably war that US can not win. Did you notice hat last week , the BRIC leaders met , without any OECD country leader being present????WHY? Until US will put an END to GUantanamo , death penalty , gunshot at schools ,Lobbying/corruption......... we will be in a bad position to push , or teach to others. The chinese culture is so much reacher,deeper , and older than the USA , that they can teach.it. The chinese population was NEVER communist , they were , and still are , collectivist , totally different concept. YES They are nationalists... less than US citizens. They are NOT as we believe they are ..... we are not as they believe we are Very few chinese do have passports , as very few americans does. Little communication between populations. CHina is a better melting pot , compared to USA , and so was for the last 1000 years...... GO and live there ....... understand their culture and you will probably adjust your pre-judgement , while helping them to adjust theirs. At least try it !!!!!! Salud , amor , dinero , e tiempo para gustarlo.
