Evaluating applications for NCWIT's Aspirations in Computing award is truly inspiring. We have some rocking young women emerging from American high schools who are going to help redefine (and disrupt!) STEM careers and education. Thanks to leaders like +Ruthe Farmer who are working to broaden participation by women in science, technology, engineering, and math.

Joe Paterno has lung cancer. Doctors plan on telling someone then doing nothing about it. (RT @Justin_Stangel)

U.S. vs Greece - and why is Greece the one that seems to be in much worse shape (or does it?)?

Why can't I create larger circles that encompass my current circles? Since G+ stream has a forced-choice for which circle you're seeing in your stream, I'd really like some higher-level circle categories.

Tristan, I think that's a great idea. There seems to be a lot of confusion on this issue.

Chromebook or Galaxy Tab?

Tough choice! I have both a Chromebook (Samsung Series 5) and iPad 2. And they're both pretty good. I'd say that if you already have a laptop, you'll probably get more use from a tablet - so go with that.

Heartened by the speakers - including innovators, educators, and students - at #TRETC2011. We're working to advance education to catch/keep up with the kids who are being born today.
