We have been told that technology can’t be stopped and that we are heading for a jobless economy. We have been told that anyone who disagrees is an old fogey standing in the way of progress.

Peter Greene says “nonsense.”

Do you remember the predictions about 15 years ago that MOOCS would drive most institutions of higher education out of existence. Didn’t happen. Except for job-oriented and/or highly motivated persons, online instruction is boring except in small doses, monitored by a teacher.

Greene writes that venture capitalists have lost patience with self-driving trucks and cars.

As millions of parents have become involuntary home-schoolers, they see the limits of online instruction. Boredom sets in.
