Kindergarden Teachers Know

Clifford Stoll is an astronomer who helped capture a notorious KGB hacker and who spends his afternoons making zero-volume (Klein) bottles.

In this really fun and entertainingly unfocused talk, he wanders from techno-skepticism, futurism to education and even manages to empirically determine the speed of sound in the process.

His most notable point? If you want to know what the future is going to be like, don’t ask a technologist. Don’t ask a programmer. Yes, they can speculate. But no. Ask a kindergarden teacher – an experienced one. THEY KNOW WHAT THE WORLD IS GOING TO BE LIKE IN 30 YEARS.

So, what do you think ?
