Creation and consumption — Benedict Evans
So, there are perhaps 100m people who today engage in some form of complex creation using what one might call 'sophisticated professional software' on a windows + mouse + keyboard-based personal computer. (I’ve outlined my workings and sources for this at the bottom). 

If less than 10% of PCs are actually doing professional, precise, complex creation, what are the other 90% being used for, if not creation?

Not even wrong - ways to dismiss technology — Benedict Evans
For as long as people have been creating technology, people have been saying it'll never amount to anything. As we create more and more - as 'software eats the world', the urge to dismiss seems only to get stronger, and so does the urge to defend.

How the Fear of College Debt Impacts Students’ Future Success
Loan aversion is technically the fear or unwillingness of a person to take loans or debt in order to pay for college, despite the fact that the loan will help someone achieve success by being able to earn a college degree. A research, published in AERA Open and funded by the Lumina Foundation, was conducted to find out evidence on the levels of loan aversion in the US, according to Vanderbilt University.

Angela Boatman, who co-authored the study with Brent Evans and Adela Soliz, all assistant professors of public policy and higher education at Vanderbilt's Peabody College of education and human development, said that loan aversion is very common among a lot of people but the levels vary in different subgroups and population. And the study can help in understanding the students' behavior and attitude towards borrowing money for higher education.
