Yahoo’s Jerry Yang Buys Doctorate from Stanford for $75 Million?


Ok, so that title edged me more towards Threadwatch (just kidding guys), than it did the WSJ, but I figured it might get your attention.

That being said, would it be surprising if Stanford awarded Yahoo co-founder an honorary doctorate as a “thank you” for his $75 million contribution?

Of the total, $50 million will pay for a new environment and energy building and $5 million will go towards a doctor training facility for Stanford’s medical school. The remaining $20 million will be used for future projects, Stanford said.

Of course, this is all just a little fun. Nothing but respect for Yang for making the donation.
