Terry Anderson looks at "Chris Anderson's (2009). Free: The Future of a Radical Price (available but ironically only for free to residents from the world's richest country, the US, from SCRIBD)" and ponders the impact of free (the real kind, not the fake SCRIBD kind) on education. He considers Shai Reshef's University of the People, and cites Anderson: "The most destructive way to enter a market is to vaporize the economics of an existing business models. ... The world will beat a path to your door and you can sell them something else." This, of course, is based on the presumption that you have to sell them something. Chris Anderson's revolution, it appears, does not overturn the economy of merchants.
