Joshua Kim reviews Johan Norberg’s book, Progress: Ten Reasons to Look Forward to the Future.
In this post Joshua Kim makes his case that analog, or paper-based learning, will never go away. He says students prefer to learn print-based materials. I’m not sure about that.

Many creative people, including Albert Einstein, have listened to or played music to help them focus. Einstein played the violin.

I can’t say that playing the piano (he plays it non-too-well, tis’ a miracle he plays-at-all) helps me focus on anything except trying to play the piano.
