  1. Free learning! Absolutely awesome. Thank you for pointing this out; I’m definitely going to check out the “Technology, Society, and Business” course.

    Funny story about Phys 10: that’s the “Physics for Poets” class (i.e., no math) for humanities majors to cover their science requirement. One of Berkeley’s many Nobel laureates, Prof. Owen Chamberlain, strolled into his Phys 10 class one Fall morning and started deriving and solving Hamiltonians on the board. Heavy duty differential equations.

    Only when one of his TAs stopped him did he realize he was giving the lecture for his later class (Advanced Quantum Theory) to a classroom filled with now-terrified humanities majors.
