Dude, I’m getting an MIT?

I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical of MIT’s OpenCourseWare project. It seemed like it could easily be a vehicle for hype. But a cursory overview has left me pretty impressed.

I hope they don’t let this die on the vine. When they first announced it, I felt a little hop of joy. Though I admit to being a bit cynical, the idea that someone could use this to bootstrap themselves seems pretty solid to me. Diderot’s work was nice, of course, but combine wikipedia with the materials from MIT and you have the makings for one heck of an autodidact’s paradise.
