I've just signed up to this course, which I found out via +Laura Prado . It seems awesome! :) #mooc

It will be quite interesting to follow how OUYA impacts the game console market.

Sharing a document: PACKAGED ONLINE COURSES

As some of you know, I've been a keen participant in the MOOC phenomenon. I'm a happy user of the Coursera platform (where  +Matthew O. Jackson and +Kevin Leyton-Brown and I are just finishing up our second Game Theory Online class). I'm also helping the Google Course Builder team in their effort, and we'll be teaching our next class on that platform, hosted at Stanford, in conjunction with Stanford's Class2Go). In addition, I've been consistently trying to help Stanford synthesize a strategy that will serve it well in the 21st century. In connection with that, last year I wrote a memo, which I later turned into a generic version for universities trying to wrap their arms around an online strategy. I've been asked increasingly to share this unpublished document (most recently, at the American Association of Universities Registrars’ Conference), so here it is. Comments welcome.

Ouch....

"We call ourselves web developers, software engineers, builders, entrepreneurs, innovators. We’re celebrated, we capture a lot of wealth and attention and talent. We’ve become a vortex on a par with Wall Street for precocious college grads. But we’re not making the self-driving car. We’re not making a smarter pill bottle. Most of what we’re doing, in fact, is putting boxes on a page. Users put words and pictures into one box; we store that stuff in a database; and then out it comes into another box."

Clay Shirky nails it in this article on why we need these changes in #highered

"In the academy, we're fine with anything that lowers the cost of education. We love those kinds of changes. But when someone threatens to lower the price, well, then we start behaving like Teamsters in tweed."

Awesome interview at this month's Wired with Clayton Christensen, Harvard Business School professor and author of The Innovator’s Dilemma :

"Smart companies fail because they do everything right. They cater to high-profit-margin customers and ignore the low end of the market, where disruptive innovations emerge from."

"If you had to list some industries right now that are either in a state of disruptive crisis or will be soon, what would they be?

Christensen: Journalism, certainly, and publishing broadly. Anything supported by advertising. That all of this is being disrupted is now beyond question. And then I think higher education is just on the edge of the crevasse. Generally, universities are doing very well financially, so they don’t feel from the data that their world is going to collapse. But I think even five years from now these enterprises are going to be in real trouble."

Wow... Simply wow. Now I hope they get some of this money and find a way to give me a Twitter+Facebook+LinkedIn+Google+ integration on the iPhone that matches what I had on my now-abandoned Windows Phone. I want to post in multiple social networks at the same time, without needing a special app for that. Is that too much to ask?
 

Apple’s cash hoard reaches $137 billion
----
Apple has enough cash on hand to buy every man, woman and child in the U.S., UK, and Germany a $300 iPod Touch, and have a little left over for a case or two. Apple has enough cash to buy every person on the planet a $20 lunch. And Apple has enough cash to pay off the national debts of New Zealand, Kenya, Nigeria, Jamaica, Cuba, Egypt, Vietnam, and Singapore.
