One of the greatest things about computing technology is simply how much information is available to anyone who is interested. Technical reports, papers, and most importantly, open source software tools are all available to whomever wants them. This represents a significant democratization of technology. Major universities like MIT are even making entire college level courses available to the public.
It’s nice to see that Google is trying to do the same by establishing the Google Code University. Lots of good information available here.
