    Seems interesting to me. You talk a lot about mind augmentation etc but learning could be a cool topic to focus on. Maybe the episode could start with global internet and 1000 person classes to brain augmentation and the intelligence of all people combined. Then tie that into matrioshka brains and what do we get after that?

    We actually had it (Future of Education) on the schedule but I had to nix it, I think it was slotted to come out today actually, we just bumped the schedule up, or maybe next week. Hard topic to write, especially since I have 'views' on modern education and it kept spilling over into my writing, so I decided to stick it on the back burner for a while.

    It is very difficult to write about the future of education even without a biased opinion. Just by examining the history of education vs a logical examination of what education "should" be is difficult enough. Historically it has been about the needs of a culture/society whether master/apprentice for blacksmiths or masons, basic mathematics for industrial era employment to "university" for first world countries. This speaks nothing of education to self existence, self dependence and sustainment, sowing, cooking, or other basic life skills.

    I think we can say one solid thing about futurism and education.

    All of those space ships, robots, colonies and engineering marvels will have to come from educated human brains.

    And the fewer people our civilization educates, the further away all of those goals become.

    Even cold war hawks in the 1950s knew the foundation to beating the Soviets into space was as much STEM education for children as steel and fuel.

    So even if I didn't care about kids, I still want my robots and rocketships! And they're all built by squishy little brains.
