Dangerously Irrelevant - Scott MacLeod

Our intelligence tends to produce technological and social change at a rate faster than our institutions and emotions can cope with. . . . Innovation is cumulative and the rate of change accelerates. We therefore find ourselves continually trying to accommodate new realities within inappropriate existing institutions, and trying to think about those new realities in traditional but sometimes dangerously irrelevant terms. - Gwynne Dyer
Education today and tomorrow is a subject near and dear to this Hitchhiker's heart. Hence, finding Scott's site is a good one to try and keep current in this area.

I wrote elsewhere about the Did You Know video he tweaked (originaly put together by Karl Fischer). It is impressive!

Consider adding Scott's site to your RSS Reader or don't be surprised if you find yourself dangerously irrelevant!
