Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The unified school district for Chandler in Arizona has received a $5 million grant for technology from chip giant Intel. This is good news, according to local newspaper The East Valley Tribune, because it means that the money, spent over five years, will help the kids (and teachers, lest we forget) to implement technology education in the local schools. The newspaper quotes Intel executive Carlene Ellis as saying this is a "fast-go initiative with a little money behind it". She made the announcement to 2,100 employees at the local Chandler fabrication fab, many, doubtless, who either have or will have kids in the area. Superintendent Camille Casteel, who runs the district, welcomed the Intel money, and said it would help the schools to go to the next level. Further, Intel is giving money to both the Arizona State University and to the Chandler Gilbert Community College in Chandler itself to help students with their maths, their science, and their technology. There was a time, not so long ago, when pianoforte firms sold so many of their keyboards they could afford to make similar donations, in scaleable terms, but those days have long gone. Now, a keyboard is a keyboard is a keyboard. Well done, Intel, we say, for promoting convergence. There's nothing like enlightened self-interest, we say. Particularly as Intel is vastly expanding its Chandler fab. ® See Also Let them eat email
