I'm a big fan of stackexchange sites, being most active on stackoverflow. Today I was thinking about how "history repeats itself", and arrived at this question:
Looking at the free exchange of information, ideas, questions and answers that we can see at SE sites today: Do stack exchange sites in any form resemble what the actual Platonic Academy might've been like?
I dont know if Platonic Academy as an institution has been free or paid, and who could enter it and listen/participate.
Thank you for your thoughts!
