When Robert Scoble of PodTech, formerly of Microsoft posted about Bill Marriott's blog post praising education, I had to take note. It seems to me that Jay Cross of the learning world posted about Bill Marriott as well. Jay's initial reaction to the blog.
Your blog is not authentic. For shame. The comments to your firstposting are ludicrous. It’s odd that your comments are writiten infully formed, grammatically correct sentences. And they all appear tocome from Americans. And that they throw only soft punches.
The timing of comment submissions more or less prove they are fake.You first posting is dated 12:01 am, January 16. Comments are dated:16/01/2007 6:31:14 AM

No, Bill, the world doesn’t work this way. As Steve Jobs has famously said, “Life is random.”You can fool all of the people some of the time. You can fool someof the people some of the time. But you can’t fool all of the peopleall of the time. Was your first comment really made by someone named Abraham Lincoln?
You might have heard about Marriott. The hotel chain. It all happened because a kid went to college and gotenough confidence to try something new, Bill Marriott wrote on his blog.
Every day I’m thankful that my dad went to college at a communitycollege in New York (on the GI Bill), later got a PhD from Rutgers, andgot moved to Silicon Valley to work at Ampex. Everytime I pass theAmpex sign I thank them cause without that I wouldn’t have been in themiddle of the tech industry.Marriott’s blog is really good, by the way, and I thank James Governor for bringing this post to my attention. The other post that James brought to our attention made a tear come to my eye.
