As I sit in my Cambridge condo in the midst of Harvard Square, I find myself reflecting upon the reactions of my fellow students. Harvard has an extreme abundance of intellect, but I would not consider it to have an abundance of emotion. But this week, I saw emotion.
Right now, Harvard is a ghost town. As far as we know the campus is safe, but we're listening to the officers and staying inside. There's a lot of hugging going on right now and a lot of prayer. People are realizing there are more important things in life, like the relationships that we build.
Today's B-school students and recent graduates are eager to connect with experienced business people and work collaboratively on the big social issues of the day, from poverty and health care to education and the environment. These collaborations can be extraordinarily powerful.

There is an exciting new development of essay-grading software. This innovation, coming courtesy of the EdX people from Harvard and MIT, may have finally closed the diminishing gap between "educational reform" and parody. The only possible response is, "Are you kidding me?"
Dorie Clark's new book, Reinventing You: Define Your Brand, Imagine Your Future, is especially relevant for our increasingly technological world, and emphasizes social identity branding online.
