Well.  To me, the topic of the video was "Handwritten text" vs "Digital text".

There Digital text win because suport links and is easy morphing
powers. Text is a good vehicle for ideas, so better text is important.

PHPBB alike forums are voice tradition. Camp fires for hunter tales.
This is like 100.000 years old, so will not go away soon :D

Yea, voice tradition is often inaccurate..  and retard.

People lean that way. A book is not enough, need other guy voice (the
teacher) even if the teacher make mistakes, seems a better way. Maybe
because information generated by the teacher (or the guy on the Web
2.0 forum) is customized for the receiver, removing redundant data,
adding related info, personal experience, etc.

I am amazed by the Wonders of our culture. Our democracy civilization
heritage is not a enormeous wall to stop barbarian invasions but the
wikipedia.  I am proud of our civilization :D
Happy to share this world with people that can break the berlin wall
and build the wiki :D

This list has experts, very good experts. So is a aristocracy, a
meritocracy aristocracy. Can be dificult to like something the mass
create If you are a expert, but take my word here: is a amazing cool
