Interesting: "The data show that a “student’s being an underrpresented minority is not a good proxy for his being low-income. Thus, if a college wants its student body to exhibit income diversity commensurate with the income diversity among high achievers, it cannot possibly attain this goal simply by recruiting students who are underrepresented minorities. If admissions staff do most of their outreach to low-income students by visiting schools that are largely Hispanic and black, the staff should realize that this strategy is likely to lead to a student body that is not income-diverse.”

My latest KDMC post on digital tools for journos & news orgs that opt to go the #truthvigilante route. I talk to +Dan Schultz of the MIT Media Lab about a bleeding edge tool he's building: Truth Goggles, which (if it works) could function as an automatic bullshit detector for news consumers. Bold idea, but intriguing.
