Bullshit. Online Ed that is nothing but a talking professor sucks. Great online education costs money too, just in different places.

The busiest sector continues to be companies selling software to businesses. Marketing-software maker Marketo Inc., and analytics-software company Tableau Software Inc. priced their IPOs on Thursday night, and are set to begin trading on Friday. Tableau sold more shares, and at a higher price, than expected, according to a person familiar with the sale.

Another considering the leap is utility-software company Opower Inc.
A cluster of advertising-technology firms, including Criteo and YuMe Inc., are also eyeing 2013 listings, people familiar with the situation said.
