KACHING IN PICTURES! Thanks to Boundless for creating this clever infographic about funding of education technology companies. It looks like an up-up-and-away chart (money quote: "VC investment in education in 2012 is expected to be 4x higher than in 2002"). But do remember that 2002 was a particularly horrible year for VCs. We are at new highs, though: in 2011, we passed the last peak of edtech investment, which occurred during the memorable bubble of 1999.
