Movies, TV Shows, Songs, and Textbooks

David Wiley, iterating toward openness, May 29, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

David Wiley crunches the numbers and notices that textbooks are terribly out of step (a phenomenon that cannot last):

- Netflix – $7.99/month for access to 20,000 movies and TV shows

- Spotify – $9.99/month for access to 15 million songs

- CoirseSmart - $20.25/month ($121.49/180 days) for access to one biology textbook

"Go on… read that previous paragraph again. The math is correct, but it’s not right. Not in any moral sense of the word “right,” anyway."
