Society is changing to interact less in person, and more via electronics .

Tell me more about this electronic breeding you are suggesting? Austism as an evolutionary step? Not likely, but todays society is more likely to allow autistic people to survive and to cope and even to breed than past ones.

ps: if only autism did mean 'good at math!' - our's takes too many short cuts and struggles where she should succeed. She's great at sport trivia though!

ps further: and a bit later on I see that sOnicfreak seems to have also worked out this electronic breeding! I think that's what he's saying anyway.

yes people, this is an interesting discussion, but we do really want to know about the efficiency of unicorn farts. I've heard so much mentioned of them lately but no hard core mathematics or science about it. Do we need to ask the CSIRO for an opinion once they have finished their dragon reasearch?

Why would you want to cry? You got emotional problems you want to tell us about? You do want to read the article and think about it since that is the whole point of these sort of articles. He started a company, he left, people want to know why, its tech and gaming related so its totally relevant. So AC go off and cry about your lack of imagination and sense of interesting.

It is moronic not to. Daughters' school implemented this this year (in Australia). Cheaper than text books, lighter in carrying than the full bag the older one had to transport the year before, more effective. I was doubtful early, but it has to be considered a success. Apple - Ipad -> yeah we can hate apple, but give me another suggestion that would work better? Apple did it back when I was a kid making a good education environment, and it seems they've done it well here again.
