A couple of education related articles about open source wikis, etc.

And in addition to China, France and the rest of Europe are all leaving Canada in the dust in terms of computer education. And here's an interesting prediction from the January issue of Yahoo Internet Life magazine...1998!!! any of this sound familiar to you? :-)...:

"Now Penn Jillette (Magician with Penn & Teller) had a really interesting prediction I thought, especially with all of the fuss going around about Privacy these days.

We will continue to be told that freedom is a bad idea. The Net will be blamed for more kiddie porn, terrorism, and loss of privacy. Those who remember that these things predate home computers (and maybe even pong) will get blue in the face trying to keep the future getting better."
