Tuned-in knowledge workers with a thirst for learning are my ultimate customers. 


I aim to provide this resource on learning for yourself without courses and administrative claptrap. I foresee a chain of experiences replacing the initial book in the future. 


I can use some help answering the dog's question. Note to self: host a Google Group session for people who would like to discuss self-directed learning.

Jake Red Dorman's curator insight, November 13, 2014 11:36 AM

Looking through this was not only fun but informative, and being the big sports fan that I am I came across 2 maps in the United States about my 2 favorite teams in the U.S. The Boston Bruins, and the New England Patriots. The Bruins are hated by 12 states in the United States. including places like Washington, Nevada, New Mexico, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, New Jersey, Delaware, New York, and Maryland. And of course New England’s most hated team is the Canadians of Montreal, DUH. As for the Pats, they are not loved around the country either. They are hated by 3 states, the third most hated team in the U.S. apparently. It's not that states hate teams for no reason, there is history behind why each state hates each team, it just so happens that New England sports are the most hated of any area.
