Re: Blended Learning -
"Blended learning sounds similar to the Montessori approach. I'm a huge fan of making school fun, and of creating an environment where children learn rather than being taught. I also read this very interesting BBC article about a school in NYC which has been taking this approach for years." - David Semeria

Re: The Coming Information Age (Possible Book Outline) -
"I think your outline covers a lot of ground Albert. What is perhaps missing is a description of the overarching thesis. For example, I'm a fan of Darwinism as applied to many areas, not just biology. I think this was the key problem with Communism: it contained no mechanism for natural selection. If I understand your thinking correctly, you're saying the overall rules of the game will remain Darwinian, but the features necessary to prosper are undergoing very profound change. I think the reader would appreciate a simple such summary (an elevator pitch if you like) -- it's something they can keep in mind as they process the various sections of the book." - David Semeria

Re: Technology, Time Preference and the Return on Capital (Companies) -
"Indeed. But how can one "buy attention out of cash flow" if one needs attention to get the cash flow in the first place? I agree that attention is the scarcest resource of all, but there is a finite number of Kickstarter projects I can get organically interested in per month. After that, my attention is essentially bought..." - David Semeria

Re: Technology, Time Preference and the Return on Capital (Companies) -
"Albert, I think you're only looking at half of the equation. If it's true that it's now much cheaper to get into business, that must also be true for your competitors. In other words, the capex barrier has simply been moved from the launch to the traction phase. I would argue that bottom-up, zero SEM, initiatives like Google, Facebook and Twitter will go down in history as statistical blips. In a market as efficient as the web, access to capital -- I believe -- will represent a key advantage, simply for the exposure it can buy." - David Semeria

Re: Grading Colleges? -
"A democratic society rests on the concept of voting our politicians. A meritocratic society is simply an extension of this idea. Good service needs to rise to the top and bad service needs to fall away. And not just universities. Post offices, banks, plumbers, you name it. I've dedicated my last three years to making this happen in a clear and open way." - David Semeria

Re: Passing It Down -
"Thanks LE. The problem is not the playing, it's the building. It took me all of Saturday to build the bloody plane, but then they spent most of Sunday playing with it. I guess they're a bit spoilt (they've got several helicopters like the one in your picture, for example)." - David Semeria

Re: Passing It Down -
"Um, my weekend project with my boys (9 & 11) was to build this Lego plane. As usual they were in a mad rush to get it finished but I tried to explain that if you don't get the gears and cogs just right, it won't work and we'd have to dismantle it to fix it. So slow and careful was best... Yeah right. After 10 minutes they got bored and went back the instant gratification of games on their Nexus 7s. Made me think: I would have killed for a plane like that at their age...." - David Semeria
