Hands-on Education

The GroupLens blog mentioned something I found very interesting; a Google/IBM partnership is offering university students (from a select number of universities) the chance to develop software for large-scale distributed systems. They will be offering students access to lots of dedicated clusters. The website even offers sample content to help lecturers develop their courses! There is also some stuff on web security. Maybe sometime soon this opportunity will come across the Atlantic..
