Programming is really not all that difficult. The chip in your computer is made of silicon - sand! If sand can do it, you can do it.

This is exactly how I see it too.  His TED talk is just as amazing .

Excellent - however, I still worry that education is something that is being done to students rather than by them.  The future role of the teacher would be to facilitate and create a social environment (current schools give much more than just learning) rather than as an authority figure.

We have been to some good Italian restaurants - but this is the best! They are always so friendly (even offering to take the family photo so that we could all be in it), the service is always outstanding and is only outshone by the quality of the food. I can recommend this restaurant highly.

Wonderful service, excellent food and reasonably priced. What is not to enjoy. You do have to book though because it is always full.

We took the family (four children and six adults). There was something for everyone and the children really enjoyed it. We can recommend this theme park highly. As Arnie (and Gen. MacArthur) said, "we'll be back".
