Premium Lock Duke's grand entrepreneurship experiment (and its 16 test subjects)

A few weeks ago, I entered a classroom filled with a very unlikely group of Duke students. There were intellectuals pursuing vastly different interests--Pratt School of Engineering students, literature enthusiasts, Econ stars, global health/political science double majors. But even though the textbooks we carried couldn't have been more dissimilar, we gathered for one singular purpose: how can we further Duke's mission of knowledge in the service of society, and how will the new Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E) Certificate help us do that?

Premium Lock AT&T already seeking permits for rollout of ultrafast network

Don't be surprised if you are a Triangle resident - even in Durham, a non-AT&T market in the old telco days - and you see an AT&T crew touting "Gigapower" logos on shirts or trucks in the near future. The telecommunications giant is wasting no time in rolling out a fiber-optic network as part of the North Carolina Next Generation Network. With all six cities involved now on board, AT&T is moving fast - the old Ma Bell knows that Google could be a threat. So, too, is RST Fiber which has already targeted Wake Forest for testing. Watch out, folks, fiber is coming quickly.
