Progress...

Fred Bauder-2
"As with other inventions that produced an inferior product at a much
lower price, from the printing press to the steam-driven loom to
Wikipedia, what happens now is largely in the hands of the people
experimenting with the new tools, rather than defending themselves from
them."

The institutions are slow to recognize this apocalypse, among them
Wikipedia's institutional arm. Students and prospective students are
only beginning to appreciate that the costs of education do not
correlate with their personal economic prospects. Employers maintain
illusions about the value of credentialization, as though it would
absolve them from establishing their own training programs.
