It could certainly change your world.

As I’ve said in my notes to my grandchildren, the environmental and economic state of the planet is dire. I’m struggling to find positive stories to balance the bad news. This one ticks the box. I’m getting old and maudlin. 😦 When Sebastian Thrun showed the inspirational message from a young woman whose life was falling apart, I had tears in my eyes.

“Udacity is a totally new kind of learning experience. You learn by solving challenging problems and pursuing udacious projects with world-renowned university instructors (not by watching long, boring lectures). At Udacity, we put you, the student, at the center of the universe.”

And it’s free.
