Inside Liberia’s controversial experiment to outsource education | Financial Times
“Some form of public-private partnership might be part of the puzzle here but you need good governance around that, proper public procurement and monitoring. What’s missing is government capacity to hold up its end of the bargain and, in lieu of that, you’ve got some operators willing and able to run roughshod." Another big question: if a profit is not to be had, will private investors fold up their operations? What then of the students?

Uber’s C.E.O. Plays With Fire | New York Times
Uber tracked users *after* they deleted the app from their phones. Apple maintains ultimate discretion over how they treat partner services in their app store, even in flagrant violation of their rules. Oh, and unroll.me collects and sells user data while helping you clean up your inbox. If you are an Uber fan, time to get to know how the company really operates and question whether they deserve your business.

How a cyber trail led to the school threat suspect | Burlington Free Press
Every account and phone number used in the threats were traced to particular times, servers and locations. All messages, even draft emails that had been deleted, were recorded. By the time the South Burlington High School senior was arrested, federal investigators had counted eight threats involving eight email accounts, a virtual private network and three Facebook accounts.

Is It Time to Break Up Google? | New York Times
Could it be that Google has become a natural monopoly by supplying an entire market’s demand for a service, at a price lower than what would be offered by two competing firms? And if so, is it time to regulate them like public utilities? Interesting and notable that the question can even be raised.

Making Student Data More Usable: What Innovation Theory Tells Us About Interoperability | Education Next
Interoperability is an issue in the market of edtech devices, apps and services. That much I agree with. Ultimately, the question for me is whether the way forward preserves student agency and ensures security or not. Absent an ethical framework, I don't know how much progress we can make on automated data sharing (no matter what 'innovation theory' may have to offer to our understanding).
