I think you guys pontificate too much.  This sort of banter should not be
bandied about with such sobriety.  Go out and do.  Do gloriously, and then
toast to failures and success.  When yer good and drunk/punchdrunk from that
process then think about it again, and realize...  the whole argument pretty
much means fuck all.

  So far I think everyone has made very good points. Though it seems that
our focus is mostly on public schools. Being a person that went threw the
public school system in America (Grad in 2005) I would absolutely have to
agree. Despite what school is like around most of the country in Wyoming its
seen as "pretty good for public" We have smaller classes than most and
apparently better teachers?
 I don't know about either of those but I do remember wondering why no one
else seemed to care how things actually work. They just care that it dose
work and when it breaks they either call someone like us, sell it on ebay to
someone like us or just throw it away and buy a new one... It seems that the
majority of this country is not interested in the how or why but just the
"dose it work".
Oh well, as its been said before, we are not exactly "highly in demand"
employees (not for our hobby/hacking/etc skills anyway). The schools are
doing what they are asked for. There was some phrase that comes to mind
"Jack of everything, Master of nothing". I dont believe this describes "us"
very well but I don think it describes what the outside view of "us" has
come to be.  I guess it just means more toys for us and more gear to take
apart and have fun with.
