School of Thinking started ‘streaming education’ in 1995 in Australia when it became the first interactive school on the internet …
In 1995 School of Thinking was the first school on the internet. Ten years before in 1984 we had already invented and published the universal brain software (cvsx10=bvs) with global distribution.
In 1996 we were the first internet school to have real audio. In 1996 we won the Top 5% of the Web Award.
In 1997 we were the first online school to give global MOOCs pro bono.
In 2000 we published The x10 Memeplex: Multiply Your Business By Ten. Jack Welch of GE and Larry Page of Google are the acknowledged world leaders in the application of x10 Thinking.
By 2005 thousands of academic, government and social businesses worldwide had already started using x10 Thinking.
In 2007 we were the first school on the smartphone and then the first publisher of a collection of smartphonebooks.
In 2018 we were the first smartphone school to award diplomas in lateral thinking to fully qualified students on every continent.
Power is moving away from traditional university services and selective university admissions officers into the hands of educational consumers, who will soon have their choice of attending universities across the world online whilst they’re on public transport.
If top universities around the world are slow to evolve, smaller and more flexible players are likely to emerge from the pack and gain a greater share of mind and market.
The changes ahead will ultimately bring about the most beneficial, efficient and equitable access to education the world has ever seen. Greater advances in technology will offer future students an array of new choices for how they build and customise their education. Bespoke degrees will emerge and students will be able to put them together according to what they need.
Jack Welch, Chairman of GE (1981-2001).
I wish I had a management team that really understood Michael’s x10 thinking because It’s the value-added role in the management process.

So exciting. if we could de-operationalise bad philosophy (in the same way we avoid viruses and addictions) we would abound with a lot of x10 energy for fun and work-life balance.
