50 Wise Speakers Project by Phil Venditti

If you have not heard about this it is really a cool story. Phil Venditti teaches public speaking and he took a sabatical from his day job at Clover Park Technical College in Washington state to create this group of 50 videos of prominent public speakers. These are now open content for use with many different types of classes for this subject. There is a great piece on this at Creative Commons http://creativecommons.org/weblog/entry/42373 but you can check out the videos on Phil's YouTube Channel.

New Watch

So I just got a new watch a Seiko SSC015P. Really nice solar powered analog movement with chronograph. Keeps excellent time and has nice screw down pushers for the chronograph.

Thinking about putting a NATO type band that I have on it but so far I do like the stainless bracelet that it came with.

More from NCState Hunt Library

So I just got this fantastic shot in my email from friends at NCSU. Showcasing their newswall visualization area. Like they say a picture is worth let's say hundreds of thousands of words on this one!
