  3. EXTREMELY Ontario-centric, mentioning only a handful of non-Ontario institutions in Canada (fewer than the number of international institutions? weird.) Anyway. Some interesting examples.

  4. "We assume that private enterprise generates what is so casually called “innovation” all by itself. It does not. The Web browser you are using to read this essay was invented at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The code that makes this page possible was invented at a publicly funded academic research center in Switzerland. That search engine you use many times a day, Google, was made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation to support Stanford University. You didn’t get polio in your youth because of research done in the early 1950s at Western Reserve University School of Medicine.* California wine is better because of the University of California at Davis. Hollywood movies are better because of UCLA. And your milk was not spoiled this morning because of work done at the University of Wisconsin at Madison.

    These things did not just happen because someone saw a market opportunity and investors and inventors rushed off to meet it. That’s what happens in business-school textbooks. In the real world, we roll along, healthy and strong, in the richest nation in the world because some very wise people decided decades ago to invest in institutions that serve no obvious short-term purpose. The results of the work we do can take decades to matter—if at all. Most of what we do fails. Some succeeds. The system is terribly inefficient. And it’s supposed to be that way."

  5. Holy. I pay nearly double this with Bell, for 1GB. Might be time to move… competition is desperately needed in the Canadian cellular market.

  6. Holoportation is a new type of 3D capture technology that allows high-quality 3D models of people to be reconstructed, compressed and transmitted anywhere in the world in real time. When combined with mixed reality displays such as HoloLens, this technology allows users to see, hear, and interact with remote participants in 3D as if they are actually present in the same physical space. Communicating and interacting with remote users becomes as natural as face-to-face communication.

  7. a guy gets a copy of a trade rag from another guy that has a paid subscription. publishers of trade rag find out. Sue the guy. Win. Get awarded $2K punitive damages PLUS the cost of a court-ordered corporate subscription to the trade rag.

    "A business that is entirely reliant on providing content behind a paywall clearly has an interest in ensuring that access to that content is limited to subscribers to the extent possible. But does this mean that no other access to the content can be tolerated? A person who has legally purchased a book may lend it to another to read. Is there room for the law adopt an equivalent approach for content behind pay walls?"

  9. Audrey Watters gives a fantastic breakdown of the history and the pivot of Venture Capital MOOCs away from Education For All to Job Training for the Rich. Ideal students only need apply. But ideal students would succeed anywhere. Because they're ideal. Privelege is awesome.
