MIT goes vitual

I love the fact that MIT publicly pushes the envelope in terms of technology adoption and distribution. I subscribe to and love their blog for the new ideas and applications that it brings to the table.

Now those sneaky academics are posting coursework and lectures online as part of MITOPENCOURSEWARE. Since leaving school I feel like I’ve become focused on the practical and the applicable but still find that some of the best new ideas come from looking at the ephemeral from an academic vantage point.

Part of me wishes that they would stop spending their time doing stuff like this and fill my order for the flying car though…maybe next year.
