@radnips @MsDagny @ben118 i'm a little surprised to see this kinda story here. pando stories tend to have some analysis and stay away from x raised y or x reaches y revenue. If this was on techcrunch i wouldn't be surprised but pando usually leaves stuff like this to the ticker.
also it's not critical at all, seems a little like info from a press release. nothing terrible about that just seems strange along with the fact that they're a sponsor and that wasn't mentioned.
@radnips that's true i've never seen a disclaimer on the nytimes. but they're a lot bigger and have a pretty established reputation (though obviously not perfect). i'd be more skeptical at a startup where the sales and editorial might be closer to each other by nature of a small organization.
not saying anything suspicious is going on, just pointing out that they're a sponsor and this is a strangely one sided story.

Great post. Any ideas what one could do to create a supportive learning environment outside of colleges and traditional schools?

@GabrielleThuy i really appreciate you bringing that up. when i think about what i love about them i remember first seeing this and I think my love for them has mostly come from what Marc Jacobs did there. I haven't followed them much before or after.

@Francisco Dao good point, i wonder if anything changed in terms of LV's line at that point as well. would be interesting to know more about it
Francisco, you make some really good points but I think this misses something key.
Louis Vuitton isn't just about image and logos and how things are showcased. There's a beauty and elegance to their clothing and other items. They've taken big risks and set trends at times and that's why a lot of people like their clothes. Of course there are many more people that buy their stuff because they see other people wearing it, and status, etc. But I don't think you could build brand with only that stuff and lack the real substance. That's what gets the early adopters and taste makers interested.
And Apple had that a while before they became the business success that everyone points to today.

@AzizPoonawalla it's not re-hashing of articles, they're articles written about current events and topics of interests (mostly non-tech related world and US news). it's quite good. it's comparable to a magazine version of the daily show (they call it daily show meets the economist).
