      20 Years! Cre8asiteforums 1998 - 2018   01/18/2018

      Cre8asiteforums In Its 20th Year In case you didn't know, Internet Marketing Ninjas released many of the online forums they had acquired, such as WebmasterWorld, SEOChat, several DevShed properties and these forums back to their founders. You will notice a new user interface for Cre8asiteforums, the software was upgraded, and it was moved to a new server.  Founder, Kim Krause Berg, who was retained as forums Admin when the forums were sold, is the hotel manager here, with the help of long-time member, "iamlost" as backup. Kim is shouldering the expenses of keeping the place going, so if you have any inclination towards making a donation or putting up a banner, she is most appreciative of your financial support.

Opportunity Knocks

Recommended Posts

Online university courses are common these days, both paid with accreditation, i.e. Athabasca University - Distance Education and free without, i.e. MIT - OpenCourseWare by which the content of some 2000 courses is made available via the web for self-study.

 

And now Stanford University is offering something of a combination of the two, both free and structured/guided:

* Introduction to Databases taught by Professor Jennifer Widom. You do need to sign up (name and email) and the course runs 10-October-2011 to 12-December-2011.

 

* Introduction to Artificial Intelligence taught by Professor Sebastian Thrun and Peter Norvig (Director of Research at Google). You do need to sign up (name and email) and the course runs 10-October-2011 to 16-December-2011.

 

* Machine Learning taught by Professor Andrew Ng. You do need to sign up (name and email) and the course runs 10-October-2011 to 16-December-2011.

 

So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is inertia itself -- nameless, unreasoning, unjustified procrastination which paralyzes needed efforts to convert ignorance into knowledge.

---with apologies to FDR

 

Note: the number of registrations for the three courses above is already a multiple of the entire Stanford student body.

Stanford will be offering a class in Cryptography starting in January 2012.

 

Also a class in Technology Entrepreneurship that might be of interest to some here.

 

And several more. Look at linked pages' bottom.

 

I must say that I am finding the free online university courses a real box of chocolates, so many delicacies! :)
