1,000 may not seem like very much, but for Udacity its a good start and worthy of an announcement (when they hit a million they'll rent Caesar's palace). Even more to the point, "150 of the graduates have found new jobs with the credential so far." This could be an anomaly, could be overstated, or could be the wedge that disprroves the argument that "employers are looking only for university degrees." According to the article, "There’s money to be made here, maybe more than in its previous incarnation as a MOOC. Udacity, which has raised $55 million, said it was profitable last year and continues to invest in itself."
