These statistics mean that on many campuses affluent students outnumber middle-class students. “We claim to be part of the American dream and of a system based on merit and opportunity and talent,” Mr. Marx says. “Yet if at the top places, two-thirds of the students come from the top quartile and only 5 percent come from the bottom quartile, then we are actually part of the problem of the growing economic divide rather than part of the solution.”—Top Colleges Overlook Low-Income Students - NYTimes.com (via infoneer-pulse)

Twitter and YouTube are nibbling away at our attention spans. And what little memory we had not already surrendered to Gutenberg we have relinquished to Google. Why remember what you can look up in seconds?”—Bill Keller, executive editor of the New York Times, is afraid of the Internet (via soupsoup)
