This seemingly innocuous overview of #onlineleanring on Wired has a pretty sinister starting premise, which it explicitly states: "#Skills are the new #currency." Every bit of #learning is only as good as the new / pay rise / promotion it helps you secure.
This is never going to lead to spontaneous #education, or to learning something just for fun.

Exciting! My #punklearning adventure begins, and this article explains why I'm doing it, and how.
Good evening everyone,
This is an account I'm setting up for my DIY punk learning adventure.
For the next 365 days, I will be learning #Chess, #Japanese and #electronic #music using nothing but an old laptop, #opensource #software, #tor #browser, and freely available materials.
I'll be blogging about my efforts on https://listed.to/@punklearning
My name's Vic, I'm from North #London (via #Wales and #Poland) and #learning is my lifelong passion.
Good to meet you all 😀
One man. One old laptop. Three subjects. One year.
This is a DIY adventure in Punk Learning.
