The Printing Press, Literacy, Education, and Unalienable Rights

community :: technology :: education


There seems to be some very interesting things afoot these
days... subtle revolutions in the works... large-scale evolution taking
place. We are seeing this in all areas of society: technology, law,
government, education, religion and spirituality, and most importantly,
in the community. What follows are some outlines of things my friends
and I have been discussing.



Version 1.0



* Clergy hold monopoly on the written word



* Guttenburg's Press



* Literacy



* Higher Education



Version 2.0



* Corporations and their teams of programmers hold monopoly on software



* Open Source Software movement, improved high-level languages that everyone can learn



* Computer literacy grows



* Information for everyone; power of software generation for everyone



More thoughts on this later...
