+Elmar Schwarzl very true, but forbidding communications between students and their instructors in an attempt to achieve absurd class sizes, when we should be restructuring our tax and public education systems to support smaller class sizes, is no threat to academia.

I have an urgent call for action. In AI-Class we broke all records with 160,000 students from nearly 200 countries. I would like to set a new record,  and I need your help. Please ask all your friend to sign up for Udacity Stats 101. It's, free, online, and I promise it's fun. (Ever heard about the Simpson's Paradox and its relation to UC Berkeley admissions?)

Hi Sebastian, you probably won't read this but I'm blogging about my experience on Udacity CS 101 as I go through the course. Will keep it updated so you can see how Joe Bloggs fairs! (No exp of computer science!) Keep up with great work!

I can't believe this: Four toner cartridges for my color printer cost more than a new color printer that comes with these cartridges.

Hi, I had the same thing happen from Best Buy.  I use http://tonerprice.com for my printer.   I hope that it helps.  Normally I buy compatible toners.

Nevadans will soon see driverless cars being tested on streets and highways. Google received the first license Monday from the state Department of Motor Vehicles to test the autonomous vehicles.

This can't get here fast enough for me. Any thought on the role of the railroad industry in Self Driving cars? Car Takes me around town, I want to go a long distance, Car drives to a train station, drives onto a special car with several other cars, plugs in to recharge, and the train takes me a long distance, cross state or wherever, it arrives, then the car drives me where I need to go in the new city? Wouldn't' the rail industry be more likely to invest and help if they had a role rather than saw it as a threat?

If all you care to know is "1+1=2", then yes, the easiest way is through web.  However, the experience of learning is away beyond it.

To bad robots really walk like this, we need to program less and let the robot learn to walk by itself (AI).

Sebastian Thrun's +1's are the things they like, agree with, or want to recommend.
Our 2-year old son went to this school. Neither the teachers nor the Web site had told us that he had to be fully potty trained, so we gave it a try regardless. But he quickly became the unloved child in the class room, because of occasional potty accidents. One day, when I brought him to class, he was crying in my arms for over ten minutes, fearful to be joining the class. Neither of the 2 teachers would even say hello to me, as if I had personally conspired to cause his toilet accidents (as a 2 year old!). We un-enrolled shortly thereafter. I can see how traumatic moments like these can destroy a lifetime worth of enjoyment in learning and education. Kids are so fragile at this young age. When we took him out, he was in fear every day.I understand some parents have great experiences at this school, but we didn't. We moved him to Crescent Park Child Development Center where he learned to love learning again (with wonderful, embracing teachers).
