    Enjoyed it thoroughly and while watching-- remembered when in the mid 80's I attended Mac user groups in my town. We had that group learning and sharing experience. It definitely was powerful and fun learning experience that stays with you forever.

    Thanks for sharing Charles!
    I think video is becoming ever more relevant as education and online resources are nowadays easily accessible and often free, with the only limitation being the students self-motivation to learn.
    With the rise of new online educational resources like KhanAcademy, Udemy, StudyPug, MIT OCW, etc., I think in the very near future there will be a decrease in the need for classroom learning. If we integrate AI to tailor education to students (which research has shown to be more effective) we would be phasing out older education systems/replacing inadequate teachers.
