William Dean Singleton speaks at DU's spring 2012 graduate Commencement ...

A lifetime of experience distilled into 20 minutes. Worth watching and re-watching, he lived the American Dream. Health problems that show here forced him into retirement, it's great DU got him to give this talk.

Wren College?

Requesting a review copy of a new psychology book that looks like it might be a good catalyst for a new self-directed learning group I plan on forming, an idea.


Rather than holding myself out as Small Business Chamber of Commerce, why not form Wren College.

I don't think local chambers ever quite believe me when I say we want to cooperate with them, but they do that all the time with institutions of higher education.

One of my Facebook friends is one of the biggest critics in the country of colleges and universities, they've just become diploma mills, she writes.

I'm going to ask her about the idea, but what do you think?

We'd hold a weekly MOOC for people who want to start a new group, just like I do now. People could form their own group for free, as always, but if they want to be part of the faculty of Wren College, they first have to complete a course of study in adult self-directed learning. Same for students, could continue to be free, unless they want us to issue a certificate of completion documenting what had been learned.

What do you think?

How much to be in top 1%

More Millionaires 

The ranks of America’s rich and super rich have rebounded in the last few years, and there are more households worth $1 million than ever before. To make the top 1% requires household worth of at least $5 million.

In 2007, an investor with $1 million could earn $60,000 annually 
on a certificate of deposit. Today, that same CD would earn $12,000.
