The World is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion.
– Thomas Paine

This quote by Tom Paine encompasses everything that I want to be, but seldom is. I recently found out about the fact that you can become a world citizen; and even receive a world passport!

After watching the first video lecture of the Programming Methodology course, I become increasingly interested in the subject as well as impressed by Professor Mehran Sahami for his teaching style. I will put the course contents here as I go through it, to spread awareness of this great contribution by Standford to our world of free knowledge.

I will also update this post with more Computer Science Program courses from other universities if I happen to stumble across them, or they are mentioned to me. If you know any others, do share!

The latest rap battle Robert Foster has done. This time it is between Lord Monckton, the climate change sceptic, and Al Gore, the climate change champion. They discuss climate change in another creative creation by Robert Foster. This is my personal favorite.

Was some time ago, but amusing still. A very creative way of presenting news. This one is about Obama’s so-called peace prize given out by the Nobel prize comitee in Norway.
