This is a very one sided view. The owner had to agree to take the investment don't forget and if you care so much about these businesses, patronise them so they don't need capital injections.

Personally I would never accept money from people who didn't care as much about my business as I do, but there isn't much liquidity in the market at the moment (despite all the talk of a tech bubble), and I can understand why some businesses would.

I saw Tom Noddy do this when I was a kid and I've thought smoking was cool ever since. Also, Paul Daniels' magic show rocked!

Insightful quote in this piece from +Becky Splitt 

“The most successful ed tech companies among students, teachers and institutions often get ignored by the mainstream media due to a misplaced focus on ‘world-changing innovation’ instead of effectiveness”
 
Simple concepts, big impacts: a look at some high-profile ed-tech startups

Edmodo, Remind101 and others ... simple concepts, big impacts, attract big money. I remember interviewing Remind 101 founder Brent Kopf when the service was in its infancy and was happy to hear from him when the company struck a large venture capital deal just two weeks back.

They mention use on smart watches, which is the first time I've heard a good reason to have one.
 
Technologically assisted speed reading.  Your eyes don't move; the words do. Various forms of this trick, known as Rapid Serial Visual Presentation  have been around for decades. This new tweak uses a constant red letter placement for greater ease of reading. I can do 600 wpm easily. I'd like to try a whole book this way. Has anyone done that?
