Just so you know, I checked on the download numbers for our ITL videos and our radio plays this morning.
So far, they have been listened to and watched almost 8 500 times!
Amazing… Shows the quality of the work that you do. It also shows the importance of doing quality work.
The world is watching.

Here is an excellent video that explains RSS for those people who have never heard of it before.
What do you think? Is this an effective way to demonstrate RSS? Is there a different or better way that you think this could have been done?

There are two types of Internet users, those that use RSS and those that don’t. This video is for the people who could save time using RSS, but don’t know where to start.
Just to let you know that my blog is living in the midst of a spam storm (again). Just as earlier in the year, the spam is rolling in. Hopefully it won’t move from my blog over to yours, but please make sure you are moderating your comments and that your spam stopper is turned on and working.
Hopefully the storm will soon pass us by.
How is this for an interesting picture?
This scientist poured plaster into an anthill and then dug it up to see what the inside of it looked like. You can see all of the tunnels and the chambers.
PB Wiki has made some changes recently and updated their service. Cool widgets like YackPacks let you install a walkie – talkie right on your wiki, you can also embed YouTube videos, insert a calendar and a Bubbleshare slideshow. So the next time you are thinking about a form of representation for a project, it is definitely something useful that you could consider.

Wanna see how to make junior high students mad?
Teach them how to extrapolate and interpolate in math using sorted seeds.
