On Sheepskins, Passports, and What College Is Good For
Lanny Arvan, Lanny on Learning Technology, March 18, 2011.

More on the question of whether an education - or, at least, the degree you get - is worth the while. "It is one thing to read Cohan reflect about the value of a college degree on the New York Times Web site. It is quite another to read current students blogging about the issue, much more brazenly than Cohan." (I'm not going to link to the NY Times article because with their newest paywall they're back on my 'do not link' list).

Road Rambles
Alan Levine, CogDogBlog, March 18, 2011.

It mostly works for me - ah, but where would my live-streaming DJ talents be applied?
