Singularity University

Here's Peter Diamandis' latest idea being put to work. This guy just doesn't rest!

Basically, it's the founding of a new "university" that consists of grad students from various disciplines coming together for the summer (at my beloved NASA Ames!), learning and working together across fields to develop solutions for the world's biggest problems. Many new start-ups are hoped to be spun off of what is created here.
I'm glad to see Pete Worden continuing to defy convention by insisting on backing new programs such as this that really utilize Silicon Valley's innovation to Ames' advantage (even beyond aerospace).

So......who wants to fund me to go? :)
