• iCollege? Governor Pawlenty, We’re Already There

    Barry Lenson

    “Do you really think that in 20 years, somebody is going to put on their backpack, drive a half hour to the University of Minnesota from the suburbs, haul their Keister across campus, and listen to some boring person drone on about Econ 101 or . . . is there another way to deliver the service other than a one-size-fits-all monopoly provider that says, `show up at 9:00 o’clock on Wednesday morning for Econ 101?’ Can’t I just pull that down on my iPhone of iPad whenever the heck I feel like it, from wherever I feel like? And instead of instead of paying thousands of dollars, can I pay $199 for iCollege instead of $.99 cents for iTunes?”  -Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty interviewed on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, June 10 ...

    Barry Lenson

    College students love fads. Back in the roaring twenties, they danced the Charleston and squeezed themselves into phone booths. After that, they swallowed goldfish. Then at some point, they fell in love with the practice of going to class in pajamas. Pajamas and campus life are perfect together. PJs are comfy and comforting, and sort of sexy. If you wake up only five minutes before class, you can dash right out of your dorm and straight to class after pausing to fix your hair and apply mascara. College in your PJs?
