Good news! You just got in to Stanford! Then again, so did everyone.

A free, online class on artificial intelligence will be offered through Stanford. So far, over 58,000 people are signed up. Instead of grades or credits, participants will get a “statement of accomplishment.” Go ahead and show that statement of accomplishment to prospective employers. They’ll be really impressed. It’s like that Certificate of Participation you got for being on the soccer team when you were five. Yes sir, a real career builder. Good luck with that. Pretty much the same as a PhD. Go get ’em, scholar.
