Postscarcity in Education

"Whenever we think scaling or automating things, or creating things that have zero incremental delivery cost, there's an implicit assumption that it's probably nice, probably good, and it's better than nothing (because of zero incremental delivery cost). But there's no way that it's going to better than the live, expensive, resource-scarce version of it." - Salmon Khan

And whenever we think that, we may be entirely wrong. #rethink #postscarcity
