All people should have access to education, but many college students today cannot afford textbooks. Matt believes in, creates, and uses free OER (open educational resource) material. OER statistics and pre-statistics notes and activities can be found under the Statistics and Int Alg for Stats tabs. Matt's OER pre-algebra book (with statistics emphasis) can be found under the Pre-Algebra and Instructor Resources tabs. All of these resources are OER licensed through creative commons (CC-BY).

Project Managers don’t actually cut any code. If you have a 100 PM’s managing a monkey with a paintbrush you aren’t going to produce a Rembrant. Success and failure is entirely due to the experience of the Technical Architect and coders. PM’s are superfluous really, apart from reporting the state of the project. Managers always muck it up because they think Application development is intuitive. It isn’t. Most of the correct decisions are counter-intuitive. Thats why you have to have fallen in those man traps to avoid them in future. Experience is everything, and manager who opt for youth get burnt. Other project fail because big business is involved. Then get a dozen lawyers to draft contract and prevent blow-back. Then spend 5% of budget on coders knowing its going to fail, but they will make a profit regardless.
Let an ultraintelligent machine be defined as a machine that can far surpass all the intellectual activities of any man however clever. Since the design of machines is one of these intellectual activities, an ultraintelligent machine could design even better machines; there would then unquestionably be an 'intelligence explosion,' and the intelligence of man would be left far behind. Thus the first ultraintelligent machine is the last invention that man need ever make, provided that the machine is docile enough to tell us how to keep it under control.
