Sadly our education system is not as good as it use to be.  Seriously...we were taught to think outside the box, to explore things, learn as you go.  At least I was.  Now it is almost against some school rules to do anything like that.  We do have a lot of technology that isn't bad...but it is not as interactive and imaginative as those older computers and game systems were.  I remember one Pac-Man like game on a computer that was made up of ASCII characters.
