I think I'll try this.  Last semester, the average grade in my midterm in Computer Science Theory (using Hopcroft, Motwani and Ullman) was 48 and the students complained bitterly for the rest of the semester!
People are not as rational as economists would like to believe, but there are ways to nudge people into doing what’s best for them.

The inaugural $100K Bell Labs Prize went to Princeton Professor Emmanuel Abbe for his proposal "A Shannon Theory of Social Networks and Beyond." I participated on the awesomely diverse finalist judging panel that included a Nobel Laureate, two CEO's, the President of Bell Labs, a journalist, a media guru and an amazing young entrepreneur from South Africa, Siya Xuza, who amongst other honors has a small planet name after him. Nearly 500 proposals were initially submitted for consideration for this new prize. Seven finalists made it to the last round.

On May 20, 2014 Bell Labs had an elegant 50th anniversary celebration of the Nobel Prize winning discovery of the cosmic background radiation by Arno Penzias and Bob Wilson at the horn antenna at Crawford Hill, NJ where the discovery took place. During the festivities this amusing video of the impact of Claude Shannon's work was shown.
