What's your views on how to truly drive Diversity in Tech?
Hey, @eriktorenberg & @rubenharris, could u talk to us about the relationship between tech & hip hop? Know ur both avid fans of the genre.
@rubenharris I read your Medium article from last year. It was inspiring. After 1 year, to what extent do you keep in touch with and/or update your personal board of directors.

Hey Ruben, how can we diversify our tech communities and help entrepreneurs of color build successful startups?

Thanks for doing this chat, Ruben. Based off your experience, what's the best way to drive a community effort with diversity in the tech startup ecosystem and to bring those in the community together to collaborate and share ideas (ex: a meetup on diversity on inclusion)

Yo! How does Alt School measure active knowledge among students? (Active knowledge: Knowledge that students can retrieve from memory. This does not include knowledge that students retain but forget. )

What’s Alt School’s growth strategy? Building physical classrooms, or using the classrooms for R&D to develop and sell classroom software? If they are taking the second route, do you see Clever, Knewton, and Khan Academy as competitors. Why/Why not?
