Want to support #education? Donate to Tumblr Teachers' Classrooms! f

Dear Tumblrverse,

Before the explanation part of this post, I need to say this so it will be in posts that are shortened by a reblog: More than anything I ask that you reblog this post so that kind millionaires more people will see it and more support can be given. All the Amazon wishlists and blogs are linked below the read more link!

As the new school year approaches, we are obviously in denial teachers are mentally figuring out what materials we need for the school year, what will be provided by the school or families, and what we will buy with our own money as we shop sales (if it is in our budget). Several members of our #education community on tumblr dealt with unexpected family deaths, weather disasters, or more happy (but expensive) life achievements like getting married or having a baby. Our pockets have been hit hard, and I think you’d be surprised how much of our own money we spend on classrooms each year.

Many of us teach in areas where our students’ families cannot help with school supplies. In fact, as I began working on this project, every teacher I contacted to include that came from a more affluent community declined being included so that classrooms in greater need could be helped. I am in awe of the teachers in this community. After the jump is a list of teachers and their classroom wish lists for the upcoming year. If you are able to, please consider supporting a teacher via their wishlist. If you’d rather make a donation to their supply fund or send a gift card, I’m sure you could contact them and they wouldn’t turn you down.

So after the jump are the blogs and corresponding wishlists from Tumblr’s teachers — most of the educators on this list I have personally interacted with and know them to be dedicated to their students.

Guys, made me tear up a bit.

Look at the lists. Many of the items cost only $5. See if you can buy even just one item for these teachers.

Timehop Raises $10MM, led by Shasta Ventures

Jonathan, Benny, and the rest of the Timehop team announced today that they raised their Series B, a $10MM round from Shasta Ventures, with participation from Spark, OATV, and Randi Zuckerberg.

Timehop has been growing their user base incredibly well. More people read their Timehop each day than read NYTimes and USA Today. I’ve been asked frequently (as recently as today) what is their secret to their App Store success, and I’ve blogged about my response before. Quite simply, their secret is that there is no secret; just persistent high-quality product iteration. I’m sure that answer sounds too easy to be true, but it’s actually incredibly hard to execute: it takes dedication to constantly refine and improve a product, polishing every last rounded corner.

I’m delighted Shasta has joined the investor syndicate. The interactions I’ve had with Sean Flynn, the partner at Shasta that led the deal and joined the Board, have been terrific, and I know they’ll be a great partner for the company going forward.

I’m so impressed by Timehop’s continued execution. Frankly, I’m a fanboy. This round is another validation point for the great progress they’ve been making. Onwards! :)

This seems so weird to me. As if social media isn’t redundant enough, Timehop appears to be like the local TV syndication station of your life; instead of re-running shows you watched in years past, it re-runs your social media. 

I don’t get it.

I guess it would be good in court to prove your past whereabouts.

"No system of mass surveillance has existed in any society that we know of to this point that has not been abused. When we look at the German Stasi for example, they were a state security bureau set up to protect their nation, to protect the stability of their political system, which they considered to be under threat. They were ordinary citizens like anyone else. They believed they were doing the right thing, they believed they were doing a good thing. But when we look at them in historic terms, what were they doing to their people? What were they doing to the countries around them? What was the net impact of their mass indiscriminate spying campaigns? And we can see it more clearly."
