The virtue of excellence
The article is dead on: read The Diamond Age.So skeptical about the "hacked Android" stuff. Does this mean that they changed some setting? I think we've all heard a lot of happy talk about getting amazing results from the Left's favorite people, but it never quite works out. Because this is a tech solution instead of the usual, it's more plausible, but I don't think it's time to get excited.
Interesting. It reminds me of B.F Skinners programmed instruction from the mid 1960's: it worked so well, he expected the education establishment to embrace it. Ha! The establishment saw it as a threat to teacher jobs, so they closed ranks and demonized it/him.----------------I regularly hear from friends in field anthropology/foreign service/missions how surprised they are at the capabilities of individuals in the third world (cf Jared Diamond lecturing us about how New Guineans are smarter than Westerners). What seems to be lacking is the spark to organize a sewage district.-----------------------Hacking the Android: this seems to have been some locked functions.
