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.
Just got my latest watch in the mail from an ebay auction. It is a Doxa anti-magnetic analog watch from the 1950s - really cool watch with a little wear and tear. Could be my smallest, thinnest watch ever! A first!
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.
I really want this watch but i think it is a bit over priced in general
My good friend Jim Mouw designed this Kuail OLE watch at the Boccia Watch Site.
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!

The Kuali Open Library Environment received a $750,000 grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to develop an open, community-based library software system. OLE was launched in 2009 in part from a $2.3 million grant from the Mellon Foundation and is designed to help libraries manage and deliver an ever-increasing amount of digital resources and collections.
