• Commented on Generation Z
    I for one (having enjoyed the West German version of free education) am still wondering why the lousy education system in the UK has not prompted more enthusiasm in the British youth to go and study somewhere else for less...
  • Commented on Another deceptively simple question
    I think (and I am not limiting myself to fiction here), THE book will experience a split. While the medium is great for certain applications like portable, battery-free entertainment that is easy on the eye and inoffensive to airline security...
