It’s A Small World was surprisingly one of my favored rides at Disney World. It was so hokey, but it worked.

How necessary is to go to college in order to make a good living? Are we getting what we are paying for? Who doesn’t need to go to college in order to make a good living, indeed, even to get rich?

Also, spoilers within.

I’m trying a new format today. Instead of sorting links by field, I’m going to focus more on a theme. This week: the intersection of science, tech, and society. Links are offered in no particular order.
