The collected knowledge of the world is literally in the palm of your hand

… and all you want is more pay to flip burgers.

Never before has so much education been freely available to anyone with a library card, and everyone’s still trying to get $15 for working at burger king

My education in my career field is almost entirely self-taught. At first by spending hours at Barnes and Nobel (that’s a book store, kids) with a pen and notebook and reading technical books I couldn’t afford or find anywhere else.

Today, 10,000 times that information is freely available from the magic rectangle in the palm of your hand, and we’re too busy wandering around looking for cartoon monsters.

Don’t get me wrong; The pokemon thing is cool, but it’s not cooler than learning something new from scratch and getting a better job with that knowledge and effort.
