$7k for a Master's in Computer Science from Georgia Tech?  Their student recruiting model is very interesting - core of degree seekers, group of aspirants who don't qualify but get to prove themselves, and those looking for certificates rather than Master's degrees.   How very interesting!

A bit of LostWinds 2: Winter of the Melodias for the holidays (http://lostwinds.frontier.co.uk/)  This week they have it featured as the App of the Week over at Apple.   Really lovely with engaging ways to help Toku accomplish his tasks.  Often puzzling but once you figure it out the solutions are always clever.  Part of the genius is in puzzles that reveal themselves as the story progresses - very well done.  (BTW, I didn't post this to FB, as they made me a friendly offer to pay $7 to promote it, and well, that's just silly).

Curious that patents appear above the fold.  Could be useful.

Robert Scoble originally shared:
 
Tonight I had dinner with a few people who know Steve Jobs' wife Laurene Powell Jobs and/or worked directly with Steve and they all praised his wife as being both kind and strong.

This photo is one that came up several times at dinner. Shot by Lea Suzuki of the San Francisco Chronicle at the end of the keynote address to the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference on June 6th shows the strong relationship they both have.

It also shows the emotion Steve had as he finished what would be his last performance on stage.

Over the next few days I bet we get to know Laurene a bit more. I have no idea if she wants the spotlight or not, I imagine that they were so private for a reason, but she will play a key role in the future of Silicon Valley no matter how public she wants to be.

I remember how the Hewletts and Packards reshaped Northern California through their daughter's interests (the Monterey Bay Aquarium is a great example of that).

Laurene Jobs now is one of Silicon Valley's most powerful women and we don't know much about her.

The press is going to push in on her over the next few days, to try to find out more about her.

I hope they give her and their kids space to move and think over the next few weeks as they grieve, but a new chapter in Steve Jobs' legacy is about to start and she and her kids are in control of that.

I can't imagine that it's an easy role to be thrust out into the public, with all eyes looking at you, the way she's about to be.

Let's all send some of this love that's been gushing all over the Internet her way. She's going to need it now.

Last week I got to meet with World Bank last week as they were launching a new book on Venture Accelerator Networks. What is a Venture Accelerator Network? It's a group that helps entrepreneurs by nurturing their business development efforts through training, mentoring and brokering. IC2 was one of the 15 they studied - looking at our programs in India and Mexico.

I've only started reading, but if you are interested in how non-profits and governments can successfully foster entrepreneurship, it's worth a look.
