Seems like they tested in Portland in the morning and then tried it out on the Bay. My money is on it this feature being made available most places within a year.


I think I saw somewhere that 100k+ students had signed up initially. However, according to this NYTimes article (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/05/technology/khan-academy-bl...):

"But in education circles, Mr. Khan’s efforts have captured imaginations and spawned imitators. Two Stanford professors have drawn on his model to offer a free online artificial intelligence class. Thirty-four thousand people are now taking the course, and many more have signed up."

Not sure if "taking the course" means advanced track and completed midterm or not.


Thanks for the ideas, Rkalla.

I'm curious about general trends with tech entrepreneurship among recent college grads and how it compares to the late '90s boom era. I wonder if we were looking for a co-founder back in '98 with roughly the same requirements, would it be easier or harder? The boom back then meant lots of folks were getting into compsci/hacking but the bust now means there's potentially a larger jobless talent pool.
