Interesting article on higher education in France: " at France’s open-enrollment public universities, the dropout and failure rate after the first year is close to 50 percent". Makes me think about dropout rate for MOOcs, entry barriers and their effect on commitment, etc. Thought-provoking contrast to US system.

Interesting article about Yahoo's continued effort to expand their research. I don't know Marissa Mayer at all, but it's really cool that she thinks this is the way for Yahoo to succeed. Also cool that the article prominently features Ron Brachman, my old boss and friend.
