GeneralDiscovered MOOC, Need Therapy PinmemberC-P-User-314-Aug-14 23:48 
I have just discovered the acronym MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) and the concept which spawned it.
 
I had a 12 hour episodic attack of NERDS GONE WILD !!![^]
 
It might have lasted 24 hours for all I know.
 
One thing I do know is that my hard drive now has several dozen gigabytes of video files which will easily keep me occupied for weeks, months, and quite possibly for another year.
 
With such good luck on finding a course that I've been wanting for years (for free, by a learned lecturer, from a well known university) I set out to find other MOOCs that would transform me into a genius (and, of course, the hottest commodity in the job market) for free.
 
I turned to the wisdom of the internet; specifically the search engines; and hit the SEO wall.
 
(SEO is an acronym for "Super-Egregious Obfuscation", a process by which the internet becomes useless)
 
So, now I know...
 
-- Good stuff is out there
-- It is being given away for free
-- SEO totally hides it from me
 
So once again we see economics and various business models which ruin the beneficial economics of a highly beneficial business model.
 
So,,,,,
 
Question 1: How do I really go about searching for other meaningful courses while they are still out there and still free ?
 
Question 2: Where do I find a psychotherapist who is experienced with cases of Nerds Gone Wild !!! if I am successful at finding my cornucopia of endlessly flowing knowledge which is clearly explained ?
