Did You Know? - the video

There is a great little video making the rounds about the exponential rate of change we are living through titled "Did you know?"

It was based on a presentation about the future of education created by Karl Fisch, a high school teacher in Colorado. It contains some of the predictions about future computer power that were made by Ray Kurzweil in his book "The Singularity is Near", as well as some comments about the growth of China and India. Besides a lot of intriguing facts, it is accompanied by a wonderful instrumental musical selection that becomes strangely haunting after listening for a while.

You can find our more information about this video and Karl Fisch on his blog at
He's an interesting character, and his blog contains a lot of good commentary on our educational system.
