Yesterday marked one month until UP 2011. We can’t believe its already here! We’d love to hear which speaker you are most excited to hear this year!
And, while we’re busy with final preparations for this year’s UP Experience, our UP alumni have been busy pushing their initiatives forward. This past week:
John Gerzema at Inc.com took a look at “Why You Should Hire E-lancers,” citing UP 08 speaker Sir Ken Robinson‘s work on learning that takes place outside of the classroom and what these “citizen-teachers” can offer the rest of us.
As always tech companies are making headlines and UP 10 speaker David Pogue is breaking down the details for us. Don’t miss his analysis of Netflix’ recent announcement that it will be splitting off its DVD service into a separate service, Qwikster.
UP 09 alumni Michio Kaku was in the news this week as physicists around the world commented on an experiment that appeared to call into question Einstein’s theory of relativity.
Behavioral Economist Dan Ariely, who spoke at UP 09, took to BusinessWeek.com this week to talk about, “How to Pay People.”
