We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Interesting article. Yes, it will be interesting to see how college online evolves, but virtual learning lacks one important facet that can't be duplicated from the campus experience. One can't, "get to know the fellas" from home, and connections are hugely important.
It is hard for me to believe that an employer will lend the same weight to an online Ivy League degree earned from Podunk, Nebraska that he would to one earned from actually attending the same university.
But then, perhaps I am all wrong and a backwards looking dinosaur?
