Google Android Newsweek Cover

I was in Sherwood, Oregon this week for our Google Summit. I pulled onto our lane and stopped by the mailbox after the long drive home. I was excited to see this Newsweek in the stack of mail. The best part of the cover article was this question:

Part of my job is looking at those implications and finding the opportunities for school districts, teachers, and students in our state. My current projects are dizzying. In the best way.
