Doing Well by Doing Good...

Excellent article from Fortune Magazine... they have a new list, the "Companies that are doing well by doing good" list.  Surprised its not ranked #1 but Google weighs in at #2 according to Fortune.

Google is an amazing company, and gives back way more to the global community in more ways than most companies.  We're lucky to work with them...

You can read whole the Fortune magazine article, published in print in the 1 September 2015 edition, here.  Its free.  Another favorite company, Whole Foods, came in #30 while Kickstarter squeaked in at 48th.

Chromebooks Dominate US K-12 Education Shipments

I do a lot of environmental scanning on Education Technology, and of course the Google Platform and Chromebooks are critical to our success at TechPlanning.  Here's an interesting article from EdSurge on Chromebooks surpassing the 50% mark of all Education sales last quarter.

While the Google Platform, Apps for Education and Classroom, are hardware-agnostic, the rapid and deep penetration of the Chromebook into the educational institution is amazing.  And just think, three years ago there was no Chromebook.

Enjoy!

September 11th - A Day of Quiet Reflection

September 11th, 2001 - a day not soon forgotten in American history and the history of the world.  On this the fourteenth anniversary of a day so many would wish to forget we honor the civilians, airline personnel, first responders and military whose lives were tragically lost that fateful day.

Please join us at TechPlanning in observing a moment of quiet reflection to honor the memory of those who were lost, their loved ones, family and friends, and all of us who were changed forever that day.  You are truly never far from our thoughts.

Thank you.
