Lanier paints himself as an authority on the subject. Pointing out and questioning his self-appointed authority is reasonable as anybody trained in critical thinking should do when statistics and opinion are presented as facts upon which they would, in turn, take to the government as policy change talking points.
I got an EE degree from a CSU system school in 4 1/2 years that I paid for myself with a part-time job and modest living. I had a decent apartment. Cheap cars (biked mostly anyway). I was married 2/3 the time and had a kid the last year. No student loans (wife also) and I got a degree (she got a degree in Mol. Bio) with which I could get a real job afterward. Of course, only half the courses I was forced to take meant anything to me or my career path. What will cut down on tuition cost and debt is not forcing students to take at least three semesters worth of classes they'll never need.
