The thing about the Chrome laptop is that it will eventually (soon) be very cheap. The Chrome laptop is not a replacement for your MacBook Pro or your Windows 7 laptop. The Chrome laptop is a leapfrog tool, perfect for the people of the emerging world who are currently on mobile phones (having skipped landlines), and will soon be in the market for an affordable computer.

I think you should read What Technology Wants and decide for yourself if Kelly is saying anything new or interesting.

Requirements: The ability to easily create and share voice-over presentations. Does not require any download or installation of an application (i.e. works through the browser).

Six billion for Groupon from Google would have been a stupid number. A stupid deal. Google got lucky that Groupon is so greedy. The fact that Google was willing to pay so much money for Groupon is seriously concerning. I have hopes that Google will use its stock wealth to do smart things. I have hopes that Google will avoid an eBay like purchase of Skype - but maybe I'm wrong.

I'm unsatisfied with the options for virtual book clubbing. This seems like a solvable problem. The place I go most is Visual Bookshelf, a Facebook App from LivingSocial. Visual Bookshelf shows that I have 36 reading friends reading 52 books, but almost nobody is active on the site.

I'm going to ask for 7 and 45 seconds of your time (believe me, I know this is asking for a lot). Please check out this video from the NYT's "Fast Times at Woodside High: How Technology is Distracting Students": Some questions: Are the students shown in the video representative of those students we will be seeing on our campus in the next few years?

I like writing about ed tech companies, particularly startup companies and the products/services that emerge from innovation centers within established industries. Writing and teaching are the best ways to learn. A large chunk of the innovation in teaching, learning and educational productivity will come from companies.
