Flashback: DIY vs. Formal Learning

I was looking through my blog recently, finding some old nuggets from my early days (which was all of two years ago!)

This post stood out: DIY vs. Formal Learning.

So what's changed in the past two years with the rise of social media tools? Are more people doing it themselves? Is the economy pushing that change?

I don't think much has changed. People who were self-starters continue to be self-starters. Those who were not, are mostly still not. The economy has brought people back to the classroom tough. Informal learning is valuable in my opinion, but employers don't seem to value DIY/self-started informal learning. They prefer to see that sheep skin.
