    My concern is that of equating lecturing and teaching with learning. Most
    research I have looked at points to the contrary. People don't learn just by
    listening to Geniuses.

      My only concern at this stage is that he does not limit the lecturers to
      americian experts. It would be in his and everyones best interest if he
      included speakers from the uk, china, australia, and alike.
