I think a good % of our education is learning how to learn and what to remember and how to find the information we will need later. - Sam Pullara
Those abstract problems (that seem irrelevant in high school) teach you to apply knowledge to a variety of situations, rather than a single applied scenario. I was frustrated by the abstract lessons in high school courses, but now I see why it's done that way. - John Zeratsky
You need a sound theoretical foundation. That's why multiple choice in mathematics never makes sense to me. What's important is not the answer, but your thought process, your approach. Calculus, physics, chemistry are important to learn (and people in the US barely learn these things anyway), not just to get jobs but to exercise your mind and make you more aware of the world you live in - Deepak Singh
Gregory, great point. Although I wouldn't be so sure about the rote learning stuff, especially in the sciences (outside of traditional biology), based on my experience (albeit some time ago) - Deepak Singh
education is the process of drawing out - not stuffing in - David HC Soul

I have both a TiVo HD (with two cable cards) and a Comcast HD DVR. The TiVo is a feat of hardware and software engineering. Its interface is elegant, simple, and intuitive. Buttons do what they should. Comcast, on the other hand, is a bit different. One imagines that their engineering meetings started out with two questions: "Does it suck too much?" and "Or does it work just often enough so that people won't rip it out of the wall, run downstairs and throw it under their car so they can repeatedly run it over for the visceral thrill of destroying such an embarrassingly inferior piece of technology?" Even with such a low bar, it's hard for me to imagine how noone spoke up in those engineering meetings and pointed out that when you push the fast forward button, sometimes it rewinds. Sometimes when you push rewind, it skips to the end of the recording. Other times, status messages appear on screen, and only after you push a magic button (never the same) will that message go away. I don't... - Rick Klau
Whoa, take it easy. - John Zeratsky

hmm.. about 50% percent of my friend feed is always Fred Wilson now because of his many modes of publishing: blog, twitter, tumblr, discus - and it's all dupes. I like fred, i don't want to turn him off, but someone has to figure out how to stop the feedback loop.
Steve, try hiding some of Fred Wilson's content. For instance his discus. It's pretty granular on what you can hide/unhide. And yes, I also have Fred Wilsonitis on my friendfeed :) - Julio Alonso
Ah...Thanks, Julio, I never noticed you could do that, even with the big "Hide" link and all. - Steve Olechowski
Fred, I've hidden your Discus entries! - Steve Olechowski
dunno why i didn't notice this, either. just the thing i needed. - matt shobe
Cool - and if you click "more hide options" you can hide stuff from friends-of-friends. I wish that were the default - Steve Olechowski
Me too. I hate seeing items from people I don't know. - John Zeratsky

Hm. Why did my DVD drive open and shut when I updated my firmware? Scary.

Is it wrong that some of the hills in San Francisco actually scare me for how steep they are? Imagine a Google shuttle gone runaway. Yikes.
I think it's possible you may be too paranoid. If you want to worry, worry about earthquakes :-) - John Zeratsky
