In the past month since REDU launched, we have seen the call for education reinvention thrust into the middle of a national conversation.  The numbers are staggering – a third of our students never graduate, US ranks 18th out of 21 countries in math and science, over 1 million veteran teachers are set to retire.  So, whether it’s Waiting for Superman, the Education Nation summit, or just over the news,…

Tomorrow we’ll be at the Sundance Film Festival at the world premiere of Para Fuera, An Intimate Portrait of Dr. Richard Bing.  As some of you may recall we talked about Dr. Bing last October on the occasion of his 100th birthday.  I still love that story about how we met (and it shows the power of a good fax these days in our overcrowded inboxes!) and I’ve told it…

Snow, sunshine, a good film or two and good company…does that sound like a good time to you?  Well it did to us, so we packed our bags (ok…Stefan and a few others packed their bags) and headed down to Park City, Utah to attend the Sundance Film festival.

Betsy mugs with ijustine (Justine Ezarik) first day of the 140 twitter conference. Perez Hilton, eat your heart out. The Twitterati Glitterati are out and in force (and they should never really have let me in)! My first big conference after Techcrunch50 was 140 Twitter Conference. Because it was in Los Angeles, it had a totally different flavor that perhaps only Stefan has experienced previously, during the Bing-a-thon. (Bing-a-thon star…
