Tom Friedman on the Gig-U Project

NY Times columnist Tom Friedman gives a shout-out to Blair Levin's Gig-U project Gig. U project, a consortium of 37 university communities working to promote private investment in next-generation ecosystems, in his January 3 column.

When it was launched, I said I thought that the collaborative, seed-bed concept behind Gig. U was very promising and innovative, and I still think so.

Hopefully, 2012 will be a year in which Gig. U moves further along the continuum from conception to implementation to results.
