Wow, this is going to come in handy next semester when my teachers aren't making any goddamn sense. But what the hell is up with MIT's wierd numbering system? Why the hell is 6.090 a lead-in to 6.001? What does that even mean?

The initiative is really awesome indeed. I've heard that many universities around the world are doing the same thing now. MIT is living up to the goal they set themselves: spread knowledge around the world.

There was a piece in the NYT about it today: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/12/19/education/19cnd-physics.html
Take a look at the psychics lectures, the prof is funny -- and had a typical Dutch accent :)

Nice article in the NYTimes on Physics Professor Walter H. G. Lewin on 12/17. His OpenCouseWare lectures on Physics are highly recommended.
