Keynote: Google’s director of research

Live blogged. Peter Norvig: learning in an open world.
Shows us a picture of a lecture from 1350AD – when the lecture was a fantastic innovation. Lots of people sitting in rows, having someone reading from the one book. Even in 1350, one of the students is asleep and about two thirds are chatting or doing something else.
While music, for example, has moved on enormously in the last 700 years and you are no longer limited to local live performance, this change has not happened to any geat extent with lecturing.
