Ja, sure is Hal, thanks for posting.  As soon as I saw you are Bill’s brother in law, I unset your moderator flag, so you can post right on through.  Welcome sir.  You sound like the kind of poster we like to have here.


Regarding MOOCs changing your life, I have had terrific success with them and I agree.  This is new day.  All along we thought it was going to be brain prosthetics which will give humanity a great leap forward.  It might eventually, but I think historians will eventually realize that opportunities opened up by free online education was a bigger advance.
