Ivory towers will fall to digital land grab

In this article on Guardian Unlimited John Sutherland reports on Bill Gates's latest prophesy about how students will educate themselves 10 years from now. The implications for traditional universities could be devastating: "Higher learning institutions should ponder the Gatesian vision of Geektopia. Generally speaking, change comes in two categories. There is change that can be absorbed, and there is change that transforms utterly.... In fact, Gates's tablet may well do to universities what Stephenson's Rocket did to the stagecoach." via Guardian Unlimited
