How the World Works — Part Duh

After the success of the How the World Works – Part Uh, I have been pressured to offer Part Duh of the same. So if you, dear reader, were so unlucky as to have missed the first part, despair not — Part Duh is finally here. Even if you did catch parts of the first offering, you are sure to get a lot more in this new series. But there’s a catch!

This time around you have to pay. This part, unlike the first part, is not free. Why not? you may ask. Because there’s no such thing as a free lunch. Why not? Ah, you’d learn why not if you attend this part of “How the World Works.”

Seriously, you’ll get it. And when you get it, you’d be delighted. And if you’re not delighted, it’d be entirely your fault. Guaranteed or your money back. Promise. So here are the details.

You signs up for the 10-week-once-a-week web seminar. You gets links to required readings and videos. You reads and watches them, and then logs into the weekly discussion sessions. You asks questions and makes points about the material you reviewed and thought about. I answers your questions.

When do you do that? At 7:30 PM IST, which translates to 9 AM Eastern Standard Time (my time zone), every Saturday for 10 weeks, starting Nov 20th. Simple? Yes, it’s simple. If that’s not simple, you should not even consider registering for this thing.

So you ask, “when does this web seminar start, and where can I sign up, and how much do I have to pay for the awesome privilege?” Glad you asked because I am coming to that.

Here’s what you should know:

  1. Course fee is US$60, or equivalent in other currencies. Scholarships available if for some reason one is unable to pay. You have to justify why you should be given free tuition or why you would like to pay later.
  2. Enrollment is limited. The limit is left to my discretion but it is likely to be only 100 participants. You have to justify why you should be allowed. (Just kidding. Just express interest and you’re in.)
  3. If you’re interested, send me an email with the subject line “How the world works” to (Not hard to remember.)

In a few days, I will publish a description of the content of this course. It’s going to be good. I am sure.

(What’s reason why I have put the picture of a NYC sewer cover at the top of this post? If you know why, you don’t need to attend this course: you already know why.)
