We see many trends come and go, but some trends stand out — we call them revolutions. They are adopted and used by the majority, and they most likely benefit the majority. The last time it happened was when Steve Jobs presented the first iPhone in 2007. It was a game-changer.

A controversial person might say that it creates an unprofessional atmosphere in class. Therefore, students can’t focus on the lecture and can’t learn. Well, I say it’s bullshit. What is the professional atmosphere in the first place? Suit&tie, listening to your professor in silence, feeling awkward? Then, who needs it anyway?
