"There are 20 million surfers worldwide, most of whom take at least one trip specifically to surf every year.

What if we could tap this globally jaunting, highly fit labor pool?

That's the philosophy of Surf for Life, a nonprofit that turns someone's surf vacation - often to a remote beach in an impoverished country - into a week or more of hard work building schools and improving communities.

Currently, Surf for Life is fundraising for one particular high school they're building in the El Cuco region of El Salvador, where the beaches are beautiful but the literacy rate is just 17%. "

Obviously I don't agree with this guy's views, but this is yet another argument AGAINST a "real names" policy. If teachers (and those in other professions) are going to have everything they write scrutinized even when it is done on their own time, we are restricting their expression by forcing them to use their legal names.

Why not allow these people to cultivate an online identity separate from the name they use offline? If this guy had a Facebook account under the name Teacher McEducator, he would be able to interact with friends and family online without his every comment being exposed to his students and the school district (yeah, yeah, privacy controls blah blah blah) or being taken to represent said school & district.

NASA is sending LEGOs to Jupiter to encourage kids to get invested in science. I know it worked on my 6 year old...for about 5 seconds.
