I would have to give this volume low marks on ethical/educational grounds, because a) it unhelpfully confuses the identity of the key work "Education Automation" with later ancillary works, rather than, say, choosing a helpful title like "R. Buckminster Fuller on Education" as University of Massachusetts Press did with its very similar 1979 collection; and b) it may have helped convert a once freely available work, produced for a public university by a public employee 50 years ago, into a much less accessible, commercial print edition. Call me idealistic, but I'd rather see publishing and editorial work widening, not enclosing knowledge.

And having explained they should have bathrooms for people of many colors and sexes, he goes on to suggest they not spend their entire budget on the big football field the generic local politician will be pressuring them to build, but instead to consider that lectures from the greatest institutions around the world will soon be arriving via "two-way television" and that the shape of a new campus for modern education would be one of small seminar-friendly classrooms, libraries for studies, media centers for watching these lectures alone, and lecture-size theaters for watching them with tutors and peers.
