Is the internet, not formal education, the new great equalizer?
One thing I learned at school and am very grateful for is the knowledge of how to learn and how to question what i learn about and apply my own moral filters. That knowledge I treasure every day and I hope that I am able to transmit some of it to my children. Everything else is personal effort. The internet provides both new tools and new libraries but to have it really make a difference one needs to know how to best benefit from it.

There are a few dimensions on this topic. Tooling aside, I think there is a role for both formal education, the village and the Internet. In a perfect scenario, formal education would teach you how to learn, the Internet would provide the learning material and the village would give you the values and the common sense you need to filter your learning.

LIVE CHAT With Damon Horowitz: When have you realized that you were wrong about what you once thought was right? June 8, 2011, 5-6PM EDT
I was told long time ago that I have a very strong personality, that to achieve something I deem worth fighting for, I put so much passion in my doings, that others around me can easily mistake for domination. Since this is surely not my intent, since I don't want the power of my passion to push people away or worse, be seen as an infringement of their free will, I made it a habit that right after I get what I want to step back for a second and look again at the big picture. Re-evaluate everything through the light of the moral system that governs me. Sometimes I find that I was wrong, I apologize and restart with new hopes.
