The subtitle to this article is "Scott Galloway predicts a handful of elite cyborg universities will soon monopolize higher education." And we could laugh it off (after all, look how wrong Thrun was) but Galloway has a better track record. On the other hand, Galloway "also founded his own virtual classroom start-up." At the same time, though, universities have "all adopted this narrative of 'This is unprecedented, and we're in this together,' which is Latin for 'We're not lowering our prices, bitches.' Universities are still in a period of consensual hallucination with each saying, 'We're going to maintain these prices for what has become, overnight, a dramatically less compelling product offering.'"
