The harsh reality is that for every Zuckerberg, there are a thousand who drop out of college and fail. Many get discouraged after their failures and move to other professions which require less skill and education. Some universities do readmit students who dropped out for a short period of time, but most students end up burning through their savings and loans from friends and relatives, and can no longer afford their education. Some give up and look for jobs in big companies, but big companies don't generally hire people without degreesabecause they want employees who have the discipline to finish what they start; who won't jump ship and chase every rainbow.

Also, practice this sort of example-generation for any rationality content that you hope to master. ANow that you know about Bayes' theorem, outside view prediction methods, confirmation bias, or any of the others — what can you do differently at work?

No doubt Apple is paying attention to phase 2 in a similar way. With signs increasingly pointing to new hardware in the next month or two, the iOS advances could be as or more significant than size, camera, etc. Integrating video chat with state-saving features and the social stream could spell doom for an Office already under pressure from being shut out of the iPad and maybe the Mac as it goes iOS. And killing the laptop market will put a rather significant dent in Windows sales too. With friends like HP running WebOS apps, Steve Ballmer can be forgiven for wondering who needs enemies.

Because the primary input method of the iPad is a single piece of multitouch glass, developers have incredible flexibility to design unique user interfaces. It's hard to appreciate the variety of UIs though, since turning the screen off removes virtually all evidence of them.

Floppy disks were a stepping-stone medium a once ubiquitous, they have given way to larger, faster, and more convenient forms of storage.
