Landmark Education on Web 2.0

You always have to be careful when browsing free materials. All too often, there is a hidden objective. Sometime it's money, but sometimes it's just wacky and unpredictable. Apparently harmless communism documentaries are on a mission from God. A search for information on textbook reform leads to a discussion on "Lies In The Textbooks" - such as evolution. I'm not even going to link to the rascist nonsense on AIDS and the Holocaust.

When I was living in New York, I heard some horror stories about Landmark Education's creepy recruiting techniques and secret organizations. I don't know the truth to these claims, but both the French and German government have listed the organization as a cult (although this was later retracted - dum dum dum!)

I don't see anything in this "Coming of Age" manual other than 92 pages of introductions to Web 2.0 technologies and a ton of great links. Use at your own risk. I will not take responsibility for sudden urges to "donate" or sentiments that Tom Cruise seems to be settling down and makeing sense.

I've done about 7 courses with landmark over the past couple of years, and have found it very useful, especially around my work and relationships, and giving me the chance to remove blocks I saw that were in the way of my natural skills and abilities. Although I don't always agree with the way Landmark market their product (word of mouth marketing), it seems ridiculous not to do the forum course just because of their marketing choices, given what you can get out of the course for your self.
