schoolyard subversion

Com, Jan 08, 2001

As Aaron Swartz writes, "In America, we have a mandatory public school system that destroys children's minds and molds them into slaves of the establishment. Many experts agree. I finally realized this and decided to do something about it. Welcome to schoolyard subversion, the true story of my fight to change my school." All of which may just so much high school belly-aching, except that Swartz is a leading sofwtare development expert leading the way in efforts to standardize content syndication technologies. The site is a blog - web log - documenting alternative approaches to education. The software powering the site was, of course, written by Swartz himself.
