Julie188 writes “A decade ago, Lawrence Grossman, former president of both NBC News and PBS, and Newton Minow, former chairman of the FCC, proposed that the government set up a multi-billion dollar trust that would act as a ‘venture capital fund’ to research educational technologies for schools, libraries and museums.
