« The productivity puzzle: bad news for the "education, education, education" crowd | Main | A ten year old interview »


Whenever a new thing comes along the default reaction will always be to try to make it work like the old thing it replaces - hence the tendency for MOOCs to default to being a video of someone giving a lecture. This is because we are frequently too lazy to think about doing things differently and often because the people doing it have a a vested interest in the old thing and don't want to face-up to its (and thus their) potential redundancy.

Revolutions are always defined by the fact that the new things don't look like the old things they are replacing. http://richardstacy.com/2014/03/13/sword-printing-press-algorithm-three-technologies-changed-world/
