This is a interesting video on public education by a Seth Godin interview. I did not know some of the history on how public education was started. I have come to believe that our kids need to be more creative and entrepreneurial to be successful today. That the traditional public school & college teach our kids to look for jobs vs creating jobs/companies. This is particularly difficult with kids on tribal reservations since distance & quality high speed internet access is a large factor in not being aware of their life possibilities.
I primarily went to meet some new people since moving back home to the Albuquerque area in January this year. A good friend of mine Will Reichard (met through twitter) was one of the panel speakers for the evening. Another recent friend Mick Thompson was on the panel also. I wanted to hear what they both had to say on the subject. It was a real learning experience, for me, hearing what social media facts the NM investor community was interested in, and how they really support technology start ups.
Since I’m a real believer that people can learn anytime anywhere, I like to capture content whenever I can from whoever will let me. So I offered to record the event for those who could not attend.
Here is the MP3 audio from the video recording (54 minutes, 25MB, link also included below):
