Comment: Separate Testing and Education (Score 1) 81

Remote education such as the internet is very good at distributing materials and information. However, it is very bad at testing individuals' comprehension and understanding for a variety of reasons. Currently, Universities do both and they bundle the costs together in one large tuition package. I think a good solution going forward would be one that offers these two services separately.

I think you hit the nail on the head, but that's why I disagree with this article. Most nerds, believe it or not, realize the results of their personal choices as you do and don't irrationally point their frustration at innocent people. I think it's unfair to say that all nerds reach this irrational conclusion "as a matter or mental self-defense." I'm not saying it doesn't happen, but this is a sweeping generalization based on one crazy man's acts.

I'm aware of the potential for abuse from these systems, but if we decide they can't watch us in public, where can they watch us? What deters a robber that knows for a fact there will never be a cop around to catch him in the act?

A manager of mine once told me he hired me because of this. Of course, you have to nuance it a little. I told him something like "I'm good at communicating the ideas of the project in ways that non-technical people can understand and appreciate the value of it. A lot of times in these positions if you're doing your job perfectly, nobody notices because the system just works. It's important to make sure we get credit for this as a team."

"I think we can all look forward to the time when these three theories are given equal time in our science classrooms across the country, and eventually the world; One third time for Intelligent Design, one third time for Flying Spaghetti Monsterism (Pastafarianism), and one third time for logical conjecture based on overwhelming observable evidence." From this:

If you have to ask how much it is, you can't afford it.
