Have just this moment realized I forgot to post an account of my exchange with the WNET staffer at the "Celebration."
Unfortunately, I'm fresh out of energy.
Boiled down, the encounter began with the WNET person saying Salman Khan should not be "allowed" to teach in New York schools because "he's 19th century" and ended with the WNET person saying there's no reason for people to memorize things because -- and here she held her cell phone aloft -- "I can look things up on my phone."
When I said, "Can you look up calculus on your phone?" she made a face.
