Welcome to our February newsletter

February brought an extraordinary opportunity to spend time in an intimate setting with some of the top figures in business, technology and public service. And the venue was the Palo Alto residence of Mark Zuckerberg, Founder and CEO of Facebook.

Special guest of the evening was New Jersey governor Chris Christie who outlined the education reform plan he is launching in his state. Governor Christie discussed the use of technology in the classroom such as using iPads to replace textbooks and on-demand learning through online education. We also learned about "Startup:Education," a foundation created by Zuckerberg. Click here for details.

In addition, we had a chance to spend time with Drew Houston, founder and CEO of Dropbox. Dropbox is fast becoming the industry standard for cloud-based data storage. These kinds of encounters offer invaluable insights into the direction technology is taking in our lives.
