Why Google doesn't care about college degrees, in 5 quotes

Google’s chairman and head of hiring, Laszlo Bock, has given a few insights in the New York Times on how he sorts through a multitude of bright applicants. The upshot is that Google values the skills and experiences that candidates get in college, but a degree doesn’t tell them much about talent or grit. You don’t need a college degree to be talented “When you look at people who don’t go to school and make their way in the world, those are exceptional human beings.

And we should do everything we can to find those people,” Bock said. Should We Teach Children Entrepreneurship. Can you teach entrepreneurship?

And if this project needed any more cool points, its creator is 15 years old. In fact, Nathan was even younger when the idea germinated: In 2012, after hearing about a family member in India who lost both forearms, he set out to design a prosthesis of his own. Although he now takes pre-college classes at MIT, Nathan didn't have access to a world-class robotics lab in which to build an artificial arm. What he did have was a Mindwave Mobile headset by NeuroSky, a California company that builds brainwave-reading headsets that allow people to play games with their thoughts, or trains them to meditate and control those thoughts.

KiddyUp: The Crowdsourcing App That Makes Parenting Easier, And Cheaper. It takes a village to raise a child — an Internet village, that is, according to Zoe Bermant, co-creator of a new Israeli-made app called KiddyUp. “There’s lots of information on the Internet there that moms can’t get to because they are strapped for time. They can’t spend hours doing research. And there are lots of things they would like to do or buy for their kids but can’t because they’re strapped for cash, and need help finding bargains,” said Bermant.

“By bringing all the information, offers, and discounts relevant for moms in one place, KiddyUp makes it easier for moms to raise their families.” If there’s any market that could be considered mature, it’s the one made up of young mothers of infants, toddlers, and early elementary-school age kids.
