I think we should consider re-evaluate the probably wrong common definition of how the word #Elite  is used here.

Together with that just 5% are accepted, I think it sends the wrong signals about what it should be seen as in todays all the more accessed world.

Just look at how much we can learn from our own homes today, freely available #online already now.

Of course that means a helluva lot more people feel they #qualify  for the finite number of student places at existing universities...

Isn't that maybe even one of the reasons behind that so many of the traditional  #universities  already now make, often freely accessible, their courseware  available for us online?

That only 1 in 20 is getting a known limitation is probably then a good sign the qualification system needs to be revisited...
 
Elite universities accept less than 5% of applicants. @minervaproject wants to change the game in higher ed.

When the most selective universities in the United States sent out their admissions decisions for the Class of 2019 a few weeks ago, they also publicly announced—somewhat proudly—how few students they actually admitted this year.

Been back on +Google+ more frequently recently and really like how it has matured since its introduction. With some tweaking my streams now deliver a lot of relevance for me. That is a huge #UXwin  for my needs.

Great to be back ;)

Skumt, den uppladdade videon blir betydligt grynigare än när jag spelar upp lokalt. Använder det program - Live! Central 3 från Creative - som följde med webbkameran. Den spara, såvitt jag hittills sett, bara som .wmv och YT är kanske inte så bra på att konvertera.

Har även Lightworks, http://www.lwks.com, som jag tänkt använda och som borde kunna ge bättre kvalitet. Är dock ett riktigt avancerat proffs-program som jag inte har fått kläm på än.

I'm think that we are still #managing data and content as traditionally files and document. Time to rethink?

Introduction
I love technology, and especially enjoy when it is easy to use for as many as possible. Technology should be transparent so you can focus on using it, not having to spend a lot of time trying to figure out how it works. Therefore UX-design and usability improvements is very important for me.
