I followed the invitation to a panel discussion at the Londonmet University today, discussing the future design of the 3d animation course. When the new fees come in next year, it's going to be about £21.000,- for the 3 year course. So my (serious!) question to the panel: "As a student, why not spend that money on a fast internet connection to Bittorrent some tutorials and a holiday?"
