Legal and educational systems are lagging behind technology

I’ve mentioned this many times before and, I guess, I’ll need to mention this ever more – the technological progress of the recent years (the digital world, yes) has left many systems of our society behind.  Educational and legal are the most noticeable.   Here are a few words in the insightful and funny video (originally from the – a place of many more insightful videos).  Here is a quote from a recent Boing Boing post showing the state of the legal system:

Ford Motor Company

When I first saw this in Michael’s blog I didn’t beleive my eyes. Ford Motor Company owning Volvo, Lincoln, Jaguar, Mercury, Land Rover, Mazda, and Aston Martin seemed like way too much.

Well, Ford’s website has some information about brands. But I went Googling for more information. It looks like it is true.

I have to do something about my jaw, because it ends up on the floor way too often recently.
