Well, the weblogs for service learning are finally getting off the ground. But I wasn't able to use my schoolblogs site like I wanted--no tech support on that from school plus old underpowered Digitals that seem to work fine with Blogger. I told my students that blogs are a combo: news/reflection/information/sharing. Some get it right away, some don't. Maybe all will by the end of May.

You better not call me a user. That would make you a mis-user. And that means you are an abuser. Loser. This is a cool article about how words are misshapen into nasty words of art that ultimately come around to bite the geek butts who coined them. I love the connection of "user" in techno-speak with user" in drug-speak. Well done. I need to keep track of this guy.
Yes, e-books are alive and well in Virginia. 1600 titles. Downloaded KJV of Ecclesiastes for my Palm m100 and hope to read it next week at school. Seems dolorous enough for a the end of school.

I know I have run across this before, but now I put it on my page. I think I will ask some students to subscribe to it just so I won't be so very, very lonely. Bloglet.

The Radio Community Server sounds like the ultimate easy, on-the-fly intranet out of a box. Combine this with RSS feeds, attendance, grading, and weblogs and you might have the ed. app. we have been looking for. Thanks to David at SIT for the heads up on this.
