Google + Howard University

I know. Odd choice given Google’s problems with posting offensive materials next to high priced brand name advertising. Unlike many situations, I do believe that the free market will sort this one out. (For more info on the ad revenue problems, see NY Times article http://nyti.ms/2nu43Yr) BUT, and this is a very big but, they are doing something that lots of folks in Silicon Valley give lip service to and then don’t take action.

Howard University — East

Starting this summer, Google and Howard University have joined forces to set up a satellite campus at the Googleplex in sunny Mountainview, California. Howard University is one of the largest historically-black colleges in the US. Howard computer science students in their junior and senior year of study will head from DC to Howard West to study with Google employees and Howard faculty. Talk about taking networking to the next level.

Let’s keep breaking down those barriers!
