For those of you that always dreamed of going to a college whose name is sweatshirt worthy but could never afford the tuition nor pass the entrance requirements, the internet is here to once again save the day. Both the University of California Berkeley and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology offer course materials on the web. I can't stress how cool this is, especially for someone like me who never really had the typically college experience. And lets face it, you can't beat the price... Of course, you can't get a degree through these programs, but you can actually learn something, and if Alan Ross' lecture introducing students to his PolySci 179 class is any indication, you are also in for a good time. So download a lecture or scope up some reading material and knock the dust off the old noodle, you'll be glad ya did.
