Obviously, their founders—Jobs, Wozniak, Musk, Gates, Bezos, Hastings, Ford, Edison—all had a “start,” but they went on to achieve the true goal of entrepreneurship: creating a sustainable organization.

Average global EdTech funding by round: How much do EdTech companies actually raise?
This analysis uses EdTech company funding data sourced from Tracxn’s database, covering deals between 2010–17. Here I compare the median EdTech company funding size by series (seed, A, B and C+) across 39 countries where there is at least one disclosed deal and the median amount raised is greater than $0.05 million in at least one round. This study aims to remove the effect of confounding variables such as city size, which obscure aggregate funding data.

And here is some good news for everybody, too: Google is making some changes to how Docs handles margins and indentations “to improve the overall writing experience, especially when making MLA style citations” (and here I thought I never had to think about MLA style again…). Soon, you’ll be able to use hanging indents and set specific indentations. This feature will launch in the fall.

Apple’s Longtime Education VP [John Couch] Shares Frustrations With Slow Pace of Change
I once told Steve Jobs, "You know Steve, if all the schools do is buy the iPad because it's cheaper—because they think they can replace the cost of the textbooks—but they don't change the fundamental way they teach, we will have failed." And I think there's a lot of iPads out there that are simply being used in a substitute manner.
