Alexis Ohanian, Without Their Permission.
“The world isn’t flat, but the world wide web is.”
Alexis calls this a book for entrepreneurs eager to embrace the internet for fun, profit and the good of humankind. But he taps the new zeitgeist here. There was a time when if your wanted to make something of yourself, you had to attach yourself to a big company because big organizations controlled resources, creation and distribution. Now you can kickstart yourself, on your own. You feel it in even the art world where cities like Lagos, Cluj and Vancouver are bypassing New York, London and Paris.
Education must ask itself, what will happen when students start learning without its permission?
