I don't know that I can truly believe that a monetary requirement makes information actionable, you've met college students. I'm also highly dubious that the quality of higher education has risen proportionally to costs.

One of the things that I think has changed is access to free information, for better or worse. While there has always been a plethora of bad free information, you generically had to know someone to have access to it prior to the internet. Now you just fire up youtube. For people that liked actual research that pitfall can mostly be avoided with due diligence, and the wealth of good information more than makes up for the bad. For the post internet crop, I question if they'll be capable of such distinctions.

Maybe I'm just getting old. I should be closing on a house in a couple weeks, can finally have a lawn to tell those damn kids to get off of.
