Of note:

[Michael Saylor] stressed that the goal of the Saylor Foundation is free education for everyone. And finally, I understood that he actually meant what he said.

How that will happen isn’t clear, nor is how that will be sustainable, but that is what many at the conference are figuring out through trial and error yielding the next set of ideas.
