Benjamin Lang, 15 year old sophomore, runs three online businesses also recently returned from a year in Israel. He does trading on eBay, Craigslist selling, (ebayben.com) web design (ben-lang.com) and teen entrepreneur consulting (teenbizstarter.com). He recently made a very telling comment about his education thus far when asked, “Do you think school has helped you in any way prepare for running a business?”
Ben’s reply “No, no and no. I’ve never learned anything useful in school about starting a business. Its very unfortunate for others who haven’t learnt about this topic.”
This has got to be a damming statement on the education system prevalent in the world today. Maybe if the school system taught some of the principles Ben is applying and promoted by legends like Robert Kiosayki we would not be in the economic mess the world currently faces.

Clay Shirky, Consultant and author of Here Comes Everybody Orgnising Organisations, describes how the internet is the first technology to enable 1:1 and 1:many communication simultaneously and is still changing after 20 years.
Wired magazine described Clay Shirky, “a prescient voice on the internet’s effects, argues that emerging technologies enabling loose collaboration will change the way our society works”. While news from Iran streams to the world, Clay Shirky shows how Facebook, Twitter and TXTs help citizens in repressive regimes to report on real news, bypassing censors (however briefly). The end of top-down control of news is changing the nature of politics.
