Stanford University Here I Come
I have recently discovered that I can now start attending Stanford University while at the gym. It's a new program Stanford is working on with Apple. The school will put hundreds of lectures and content on iTunes and make it available to the public. I'm really excited to not understand a subject via a podcast rather than to pay thirty-thousand dollars to not understand it in person. Suhweet. Unfortunately, my initial iTunes search didn't yield great results. The only Stanford-related content I found was its Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders series. And as interesting as I'm sure the series is, I couldn't bring myself to download Lonnie Smith's discussion on Intuitive Surgical Inc.'s path from mere start-up to market dominance in the field of robotics. What is WRONG with me?!
P.S. How come Blogger's spellcheck flags both "podcast" and "iTunes"? Shouldn't they have a more net-savvy dictionary?
