In the next 10 years, the world's population will grow to 8 billion people of which the majority will be in developing regions. Traditional universities will not be able to keep up with this demand and employers will struggle to find the best talent. With a predicted 5 billion people online by 2025, online education could be the answer to giving billions of people access to affordable, lifelong learning. This session will highlight a new approach...

So it looks like Intel is developing Bitcoin mining chips! Presumably an exploratory R&D effort, but still, wow.

"Intel factories, the documents suggested, were responsible for at least two generations of 21 bitcoin mining chips, a 0.57 w/GH 22nm FinFET chip (codenamed CyrusOne) and a 0.22 w/GH 22nm chip (codenamed Brownfield).

Though Intel has so far kept its relationship with 21 quiet, the bitcoin startup took the opposite approach in its company overview, which included a screenshot of an email allegedly from Intel CEOBrian Krzanich. Dated 5th September, the email finds Krzanich informing Pauker and investor Marc Andreessen of his opinion on a proposal to distribute bitcoin mining chips in consumer electronic devices."


What is stealth startup 21 working on? Documents suggest a comprehensive plan to use mining and micropayments to expand the bitcoin network.

Deb and I randomly ran into Ivan Owen at a Starbucks up in Burlington, WA yesterday!  He was sitting there assembling the latest model of the 3D-printed hand prosthetic he helped design - now with a large community of volunteers building them for those that need them.
