How many people use RSS anyway?
This is a very important question for edubloggers… Scoble shares that Feedburner reports “that they have 65.6 million subscribers.” I’m sure that’s inflated, but it’s more than I (or Scoble) expected.
Screenshot Tour: First Look at Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac
I will certainly check this out, but is it relevant at all (in the era of Open Office and Google Docs)? Should schools ever spend money on an office suite again?

Does CIPA mandate…filtering settings?
John Pederson quotes form the ALA’s FAQ related to CIPA. He highlights the flexibility available to libraries (and schools). To be clear, we *can* give students access to web publishing tools. Like NCLB, the law is not as bad as the implementation.

Nancy Willard’s Voice of Reason
I guess I need to order this book to keep up on the topic for my own Internet Awareness and Safety workshops… or Cybersafety as it seems to be more popularly called in education circles.

“Jon Udell’s latest on IT Conversations is an interview with a 17-year-old gamer and a USC prof who researches the social and economic impact of gaming.” Haven’t heard it yet myself, but I’m bookmarking it for later. :)
theory.isthereason » Today’s Links: Feeding the “Self-Help” Web one link at a time…
I clicked through to several Kevin Lim posts today. This one lead me to Slife, an application for tracking how you spend your time on the computer. UPDATE: There’s too many limits on the free trial version. Interesting slife sharing features, though.

Twitter / dbrussin
David Brussin, “Entrepreneur at large, ” is twittering now. He’s an old friend from High School and very successful in the *real* tech industry. I’m sure educators would benefit from following him – and vice versa I’d hope. ;)
