So, I'm planning on installing Windows 8 on my laptop and it has brought up a good topic for discussion. Currently I'm only backing up my data to an external hard drive. I'm looking to get some online space to use as an offsite backup system as well. I'm thinking about google as they have a plan of 100GB for $5/month. That seems pretty unstoppable, but I wanted to see what you all thought first.

An interesting idea around higher education. Thinking back about my college experience my most hated classes where biology (I was a computer science major), so I had to pay a significant amount of money to take a class that I didn't want to and learn (more like memorize) things that I couldn't care less about. I understand the need to push kids through classes like these in high school and before (it exposes them to new ideas that they might enjoy, it teaches them how to deal with things that they might not necessarily like, it's difficult to run a public school and teach only what kids are interested in learning...), but by the time students are in college (technically adults) why are they forced to pay money to take classes they don't want to just to get enough credits to graduate. This idea might open up possibilities that might not be available at a particular college/university and would allow students to take more classes that they're actually interested in. Even if they can't find one that they're interested in they at least wouldn't be paying for it. It also opens the idea of taking some of these courses earlier and allowing students to focus more on their major classes and speed up the education process. The possibilities are almost endless.

Pretty funny experiment, but I think it translates well into Agile/SCRUM teams. You're no longer alone in your tasks. Since you meet with your team daily you set short term goals, and being part of a team should motivate you to stay on tasks because if you don't your letting your whole team down. It might be a stretch, but I think it applies.
