Here’s an example of one person changing the world – the world of education.
Salman Khan holds three degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology: a BS in mathematics, a BS in electrical engineering and computer science, and an MS in electrical engineering and computer science. He also holds an MBA from Harvard Business School.
Salman was working as a hedge fund analyst when he started tutoring members of his family in mathematics using Yahoo Doodle notepad over the internet. He began to record his tutorials and post them on YouTube. The ‘Khan Academy’ channel. The views on his videos grew rapidly, but it was the comments from viewers that changed his life.
After reading the comments from views across the world and the impact his videos had on their lives, he decide to quit his hedge fund analyst job on focus his efforts full time on the Khan Academy. In 2009 he envisioned the following ‘With so little effort on my own part, I can empower an unlimited amount of people for all time. I can’t imagine a better use of my time.’
Fast forward to today, his success skyrocketed when Bill Gates said his kids used the Khan Acadmey. Bill Gates saw the potential of this ‘free school’ and it’s ability to reach individuals globally.
Teachers in Mountain View CA, tested this new teaching tool. The teachers ‘flipped’ the education process. Instead of lecturing during the class time and homework after school, the teachers have the students review the material (outlined in a curriculum) the night before class at their own pace. During class time, the students work on exercises with the help of peers and the teacher. Salman has created a dashboard that helps the teacher determine the individual students progress.

New methods for Tweeting you Facebook status:
Facebook has a feature to allow you to tweet your facebook status update. Here’s how: go to facebook.com/twitter, then link your profile (or page) to your Twitter account.
Once linked, your Twitter account will be updated every time you post a public update to Facebook. Note: Only posts whose privacy you set to Public.
Here are some of my other favorite Twitter and Facebook recommendations:
- How to update your Facebook status with your Twitter tweets
- Publish your tweets as a wordpress blog post
- Twitter Backgounds Made Easy
- Migrating from WordPress.com to a Hosted Solution
- RSS Feeds and Twitter Follow Me for WordPress.com

- Completely Unscientific Pie Chart Of Who Uses Twitter/Facebook And Why
- My Social Network Publishing Model
The method below is outdated, but check out some of my other post about Facebook and Twitter
Part I – Find your Facebook status RSS Feed
1. Login into Facebook
2. Go to this link: http://www.new.facebook.com/minifeed.php?filter=11
3. On the bottom right of this page you’ll see “My Status” with a RSS icon next to it. Click this link.
4. At this point, you should be at a listing of you statuses. Copy the URL of this page. It should read something like this (but not this one): http://www.new.facebook.com/feeds/status.php?id=615109271&viewer=615109271&key=e351bebc8c&format=rss20
Part II – Set up and configure Twitterfeed
1. Set up an account on www.Twitterfeed.com. Twitter feed uses OpenID to log in. You can use your existing login info from sites like Google, AOL, Yahoo, or any others listed.
2. Click “go to my twitter feeds (or create a new one)”.
3. Click “Create a new twitter feed”.
4. Paste the RSS URL (from Part I).
5. Uncheck “Include item link (if unchecked, sends tweet without the link)”. There are other options you can set. Change the “check for updates” to 30 minutes.
6. Click “Create” and you’re finished!
Twitterfeed will check for updates every 30 minutes and publish your statuses to your twitter page. It does take a bit (over an hour) for you first statuses to show up as tweets.
