    Excellent find, Zed. I thoroughly enjoyed that. The speaker is spot on, imo.

    This video is full of some profound points. I find it very true as applied to my education. I was once very creative and always bored at school. Since then, I've submitted. My family is full of graduate degrees, mainly professors and professionals, and that's where I've wound up now. But there is a part of me that feels undernourished; my creative self I suppose. I'm bored and feel ambivalent towards my studies and work. I don't know if I can change all of that now, but this video reminds me of how I once was and gives me some hope for the future, when I raise my own children. I believe my wife is the same way and will ask her to watch this later to see. We're both very successful, because we're smart enough and submitted to the general order of things, but I believe we both feel like academia, economic realities and familial pressure have hollowed us out.

    That website is amazing. I cannot believe I've never seen it before. It's like a worthwhile version of YouTube.

    Thanks for the link.

    certainly they do, school just keep me at bay, i sit at the back of class, carefree reading another book instead of paying heed to what instructor has to say. Gosh it is so boring getting up early just to show instructor that i am there. Aside from attendance, there is nothing in for me. Schools must be places where you can consult when you need to, as an example, if i am to write a book regarding middle east, then i can go see the instructor and talk to him about resources regarding the issue. Gosh there is no point in being in school for 15 weeks if i can do all assignments within 5 weeks. Gosh i hate school, i wish school was actually the library, i even the shelves of library once. Good old days.... xD

    I think it depends on the individual. The classic education system works very well for some people and it is the structure and guidance they need. For other people it lacks individuality.
    In Belgium, we have something called Steiner schools. I'm a great believer in them.
