- What we should teach kids
- Anonymity + distance = jerky behavior

- Proprietary vs. open
- There’s never been a field or endeavor where scrutiny by your peers has not helped.
- Adversarial peer review.
- You can lock yourself into bad systems if you’re not careful.
- If 10% of a group got together and spent their money on developing open source software then they would produce something better that what is available.
- We did this at Kodiak Middle with our Pickr app
- Collective action threshold
- What is one thing that you can do to be a transformative principal? Got out of the students’ way. Employees were empowered to cost the company money if that made the experience better.
- His teacher let him read all day for two days.
