I know a brother and sister 2.5 years apart in age who fit the descriptions of GenX and Oregon Trail described in this article.  It's amazing that technology changes so quickly that siblings have very different experiences growing up in the same household.
We’re an enigma, those of us born at the tail end of the '70s and the start of the '80s.

I would love to read to a child.  I miss this so much now that my kids are grown up.
 
April 12-18 is Week of the Young Child. Check out some of our children’s books and read to a child this week – and every week! #WOYC

Obama's presidential library belongs on Chicago's South Side, writes historian Timuel Black, via +Chicago Tribune commentary. 
As a child growing up on Chicago's South Side in the 1920s, I often heard from my wise mother that I should pay attention to our neighbor, Dr. Julian Dawson, a black physician who inspired deep respect in our community.

He got to do a bit of everything--art and science.  *Takeaway quote:* “Yes, I am proud to be called the father of the pill,” he told Nicholas Wroe of The Guardian in 2000. “But identifying scientists is really only a surrogate for identifying the inventions or discoveries. Maybe it is true that Shakespeare’s plays would never have been written if it wasn’t for Shakespeare. But I’m certain that if we didn’t do our work, then someone else would have come along shortly afterwards and done it.”  Do we tend to remember the person or the invention?
Dr. Djerassi was one of two chemists working with a student assistant who in 1951 first synthesized a hormone that became the key ingredient of the contraceptive pill.

Wow!  That's something!
 
Stanford has positioned itself quite well amongst progressive ideas in education and I'm sure it will pay beaucoup dividends.
Speaking of which see also: http://online.stanford.edu/course/machine-learning-self-paced?utm_source=iContact&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Stanford%2520Online&utm_content=March+Mailer+Final+
Most universities can't do that. But they can all learn something from Stanford's policy.

Huxley Writes to Orwell: My Hellish Vision of the Future is Better Than Yours (1949) 
In 1949, George Orwell received a curious letter from his former high school French teacher. Orwell had just published his groundbreaking book Nineteen Eighty-Four, which received glowing reviews from just about every corner of the English-speaking world.

It's Time to Kill Daylight Savings http://trib.al/hGyR73m
The changing of the clocks—which happened once again Sunday morning—is wasteful, unnecessary, and even dangerous.
