How did you spin off to equating Google with learning outside of being a paying accepted student? A lot of the universities put their full lectures online, along with textbooks assigments and so on that's more what I'm getting Or As my other example you can go to just about any lecture hall and sit in the back of the room and get a free educatio.

IMO Google changes it but only slightly. Nothing new under the sun and all that.
