Cellphones sort of being used as GPS units to map the use of city spaces has been explored here.

Free Education. Learn on your own.

I hate going to class. This is why. Too bad you cant get a free degree for time spent watching other lectures at other schools. Do yourself a favor and learn on your own. These are form berkely and there is also a link for mit’s version ont he page in the intro paragraph. I think Berkely also does a 1 year master’s program for the 5 year bachelor graduates out there.
