Many weeks ago, I was reading books on Kumon Method. One thing that struck me particularly was the founder's willingness to allow the students to 'cheat.'

In one book, it is said the founder (Mr. Toru Kumon) made a sensation among the students for allowing them to use "cheat books," books with answer keys and worked out solutions.

Some Kumon official books suggest that their content is designed "top down," with the end in mind. The end is towards to High School materials. I wonder why they don't also consider life that happens before the high school. I...

The maxim is: "If you are not embarrassed by your web app's release, it's a bit too late." Well, I am just barely embarrassed by my web site.

A programmer looks at this ( https://github.com/tomwalker/django-quiz ) and thinks Multiple Choice Quiz making is 70% done. A teacher looks at it and thinks it is only 5% done. This happens for so many other fields. Let me focus only on education here.
Add just 20% coding and customers(students and teachers) will think we've added 85% and pay/reward us accordingly.
I'm lazy but very ambitious. Join me if you are lazy too.

Are you feeling a lot of pain? Often I instinctively use what I call "vision flanking." "Flanking" is a military term, meaning avoiding the other side and going around it. In vision flanking, you stop seeing the other side, a...

Suppose Qin Shi Huang, the first Chinese Emperor who built the Great Wall, and Hitler were alive and running fast food restaurant chains and were after your small fast food joint, I'd still ask you to relax.

How do you want your kids to learn Math? I don't have a formal education in Math. And if you don't too, these books can help you. At least, you will be able to teach your kids to relax. Just a few minutes for each difficult book! 

Work hard, intensely, compulsively, obsessively and of course, productively and insanely? 

Work in balance, work having a life and productively too? 

You have a choice, your kids too have a choice.

Q: What do you get when you mix technical people and management people without a Steve Jobs as the "product picker"?
A: Dodgeball, or Foursquare etc.
Jobs picked his products based on these factors: People behaviour, technical trends, your team's finance and skills levels, and competitive landscape.
If you need a picker, please pick my brains ;-)

Are you thirsty? I have a bottle of H and another bottle of O and a kit with which you can combine that H and that O? Will you be quenched and satisfied? 

Or would you like just a bottle of high quality water at the cheapest price in town from me?

Education is a bit more complex than H2O. Yet many pieces are there, almost free. Who will mix them into A drinkable, usabel form? 
Why not us?

Pieces of software are just like paragraphs in a long story. 

If you write clearly, they read like paragraphs in a good story. You know what each means, which parts of the story are where and so on.

If you are careless, undisciplined or irresponsible, any reader will trip, slip and fall among your lines and paragraphs. And your software may down a plane, shut down a bank and a hospital, or even crash some space missions.
