Hi Steve,
 The Suffolk Downs parcel is 150 acres - just right for Google to grow 'Google Boston and 2 blue line train  stations too! Read about it @ https://www.bostonglobe.com/opinion/2014/09/22/wynn-decision-leaves-future-wide-open-suffolk-downs/0re5iK8JcSiHdHDm8aOM4I/story.html

Update on CCSC Applications from CCSC News:

"For the third consecutive year, Community Charter School of Cambridge’s applications for admissions have exceeded the number of available seats.

Between December and March, the award-winning public charter school received 792 applications from students seeking enrollment in 7th, 8th, and 9th grades. The school had only 125 seats to fill, 85 in 7th grade.

Interest in CCSC has grown in recent years due to the school’s budding reputation as one of the area’s premier college preparatory programs for 7th-12th grade students. Since 2009, every CCSC graduate has gained college admission, 87% to four-year schools."

So much opportunity, so little interest. Great opportunity for people like Maria Klawe to make a difference.
Maria Klawe, president of Harvey Mudd College in California, has helped reverse the vexing trend toward fewer women in computer science, and others are following.

That looks amazing, and well-situated, too.

Amanda rocks: "Age Engage ... pairs volunteers from Google with Cambridge seniors that are seeking Internet training and help."

(I encouraged an elderly relative to buy a tablet and it changed his life; leave it to Amanda to create a program :-)
