There have been discussions about whether it matters whether you go to a high-profile college. I don't think it does. But the issue is highlighted in this CNN story on a class being offered at Stanford. The University Business eNewsletter (linking to this bit) questions whether the program is worth the $2500. This question is particularly relevant in light of posts like this one from Tony Hirst describing how to make Facebook applications, or of programs like Dapper, which do it for you. In fact, I had half an hour before my meeting this morning and I created an OLDaily facebook app that you can actually use inside your own Facebook account. $2500 tuition? Or a few blog posts. Your call.
