From LibrarianinBlack

I am rapidly becoming a fan of this person's blog. Today when catching up on posts I found two exciting posts.

Alice a programming software to teach kids programming basics from Carnegie Mellon. I'm looking at it for youth classes next fall.

The second OpenLearning is a product from Open University in the UK offering free online training in a variety of subjects. Registration is free and easy. I can't wait to begin learning!

I can easily see that she will remain in my Google Reader to follow on a regular basis.

Tom Lehrer and Google

I was happy to see that Google paid tribute to Tom Lehrer in their Official Blog this week. His 80th birthday is just past and I realize that the old vinyl disk we raised our daughters with is long gone. I wonder if any of his tunes are on iTunes?

It pleases me that the company that brings me such helpful items as Docs and Blogger also shares an appreciation of the same wit and intellect that I do. Perhaps I'm not such an old fogey after all.
