New stuff for Old Nerds ...

Everyday is a School Day.

So I know you Old Guys are smart. However, I also know that not everybody had access to an Ivy League education. Now you can and for free.

Academic Earth is an AMAZING site that allows you to audit courses from some of the top Universities in the world (Harvard, UCLA, MIT, Columbia etc). Full videos of lectures and lessons for entire courses are available for free. You don't even have to sign in or anything. It's like YouTube for mega nerds.

With courses like:
Geography of United States Elections
Science, Magic and Religion
Game Theory
Newton and the Enlightenment
Nonviolence: From Gandhi to Martin Luther King
New Testament History and Literature
Justice: What's the Right Thing to Do?
The American Novel Since 1945

... to name a very few

you'd be absolutely nuts not to check it out. You can go to Uni for free in your jimmy jams. Can't beat that!

Let me know what you think and which courses you're into.
