This morning I was inspired by a speech from Dave Eggers, one of three 2008 TED prize ($100,000) winners. In this clip Dave talks about how we, the people, can help the educational system. The idea is simple:


As you’ll see in the video, Austin has a similar center called the Austin Bat Cave. (Apparently it’s not officially 826 National, but it follows in the same vein.)

I think Dave has an excellent, inspirational idea that should be replicated all over. Anyone interested in starting the central Austin center?
