Educating Me

Many of you mistakenly think of me as a voracious reader. While I do read about two books a month, compared to my friend Ron Baker who reads two a week, I am a piker. In fact, my reading has fallen off even more since I got my new iPad, because a wealth of other content is now open to me.

MurrayRothbard-MEDCurrently, I am participating in a class on the United States Constitution at Hillsdale College; brushing up on probability and statistics at Khan Academy; working my way through Brian Cox’ iPad app Wonders of the Universe; and taking an Introduction to Economics class with the late Austrian economist Murray Rothbard on iTunes. 

Did I mention that with the exception of the iPad app which is $10, I have paid nothing for this content.

Think about that, I am getting a best in class education from some of the brightest minds in their fields (in the case of Rothbard he is my professor from beyond the grave!) for next to nothing.

This truly is an amazing time to be alive.

  1. Great post – we do live in good times for information. Hopefully it’s going to save us!

    Hey I heard about to Hillsdale course. How is it?

  2. The Hillsdale course is outstanding. It started a bit slow, but is really very complete. The lectures are 30-40 minutes and then they have a 20-25 minutes Q&A session that is posted later in the week. In addition, the reading assignments are extremely targeted. I would highly recommend it.
