Friedman's hope: Ines and Daniel, ModPo people

Thomas Friedman's column on the MOOC phenomenon - a follow-up to an earlier piece he published last spring - expresses great optimism: "LORD knows there’s a lot of bad news in the world today to get you down, but there is one big thing happening that leaves me incredibly hopeful about the future, and that is the budding revolution in global online higher education." He mentions ModPo without identifying it clearly, but Ines Cifuentes, a ModPo student, explains further in her comment in response to the Friedman article.
