    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    Good stuff, Will. They are divided into small video segments of a few minutes each which is quite convenient.

    That made me laugh -- it's education for the YouTube generation.

    For us old folks, there are the Audio/Video Courses at MIT OpenCourseware.

    It surprises me that this needs to be taught in America in a University. Are there no Henry Fords or Bill Gates like characters working away in their basements/bedrooms/garages anymore?

    I believe that you need many years of childhood influence to make you entrepreneurial, I am skeptical that you can take a previously non-entrepreneurial college student and turn them around via some lectures. But inspire them for sure.

    Hmm dunno.

    Maybe if you didn't feed them.

    There was a tiny bit of sarcasm hidden in my comment, but I didn't expect anyone to pick it up

    That link reminded me of my old college days when I used to listen to the lectures online and ran them at 1.5-2x speed for the really boring courses
