http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZED4gITL28"Arithmetic ...false thing that they invented in school so that the children that studied Algebra could all pass it. They had invented a set of rules which if you followed them without thinking could produce the answer" -Richard FeynmanHallelujah. I still remember the first day of Pre-Calc in high school. "Turn to page 23 & let's begin." Really? We're not going to go over what Calculus is or why it was invented in the first place? No mention of Newton? Christ the least he could have done was got up in front of the class & dropped something on the floor. This is where your "why do we need to learn this" comes from. Philosophy isn't taught. I guess it's not important?liedur, I just applied for NDSU. I'm getting out of here before spring semester starts. Everyone dropped out, lmao. Btw, we could use more speakers at Code42 (MN Arduino)
Quotehave trouble understanding how this tech advanced nation managed to do its tech advancements with how little STEM it requires its high schoolers to graduate. Maybe by the sheer strong will of those very few individuals per class that eventually become excellent with their pursuit of STEM or spending WWII spoils/gains on attracting foreign brains to fill the gaps.Possibly because individual drive and initiative is as important or more so then a population/country wide education plan? I've found that in real industry the people there have many different paths to the knowledge and experience they acquired and brought to their companies.Lefty

Read this one this morning - http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2428466,00.asp - something to think...
code.org is available.is at auction through GoDaddy Auctions
The purpose of any content on that site is to raise the price of the domain name.
Unless they're throwing in the towel after the "hour of code" and the auction is just part of liquidating the assets.
Mighty interesting, but who benefits from bidding up the price of the domain name? Especially given the current bid of $3K.
Surely that is not even of passing interest to anyone involved.
