Beginning today you can take courses online offered by Harvard University! This is a great deal for people like me who were too dumb to get into Boston's storied college.

The free courses are in computer science and an adaptation of the Harvard School of Public Health’s classes in epidemiology and biostatics.  Yeah, whatever.  Anyway, they're FREE!

The courses are part of a collaborative effort called "edX," which also includes MIT and The University of California at Berkeley.
