I'm sitting in a hotel room, just off Harvard Square. Tomorrow I will be the guest speaker at a knowledge management conference hosted by Elsevier. This area is exciting, and it brings back my Dartmouth student days when I would often be down here competing. However, enough about the "good ole days", Harvard has an active virtual presence. Given all the problems in the world today, and the seemingly lack of morals on the part of so many folks, you may enjoy attending this "Harvard at Home" webcast. After all, it costs the students almost $50k per year ... you can watch for free!
Here is a brief description about the class from the Harvard web: "Hundreds of students pack Harvard's Sanders Theater for Michael Sandel's "Justice" course—an introduction to moral and political philosophy. They come to hear Sandel lecture about great philosophers of the past—from Aristotle to John Stuart Mill—but also to debate contemporary issues that raise philosophical questions—about individual rights and the claims of community, equality and inequality, morality and law."
If the topic of morals and philosophy is too heavy, attend this "Harvard at Home" webcast instead:
Warning! Yankees fans should avoid this webcast. It shows the Red Sox world series celebration!
