    I haven't tried this out yet, but Alec Couros suggested it as a free web-based alternative to purchasing Adobe Acrobat. Sounds good to me.

  • Lifestream Backup :: Home
    This looks like a promising way to back up all of your content on social media sites, but I haven't got all of it working for me… including Twitter, which is what brought me to it.

  • Signing Time Classroom Edition
    Cool. If you don't already know, Signing Time is Clark's favorite thing in the world – and it has transformed out family and the quality of time we spend with our 17 month old. Now there's a version for Schools: "The Signing Time Classroom Edition is an excellent resource for any school setting – preschool, home school, public school, private school, playgroups, after-school clubs, and church groups. Although the activities are geared for ages 3 – 9 (PreK – 3rd grade), this program is useful for students of all ages. The Classroom Edition is packaged as a two-inch binder containing eight DVDs, two music CDs, and sixteen units of lesson material."

  • MixedInk
    And this is the mother of all mixedink projects… this is the actual forum for contributing o the open government initiative. Very very cool. I would not have predicted this given only the service's features – the applications of it are amazing.

  • MixedInk
    This mixed ink project is facilitated by the AP (Associated Press) and focuses on the question "Should the Senate confirm Judge Sonia Sotomayor?" Very cool. And a cool model for how it might be used with students.

  • MixedInk – Free Collaborative Writing Tool
    This service turned out to be much cooler than I expected when I got their "check out our service" email back in May. Check out what they're doing for the Sotomayer hearings right now… and see my next two links about their open government initiative.

  • Online Backup, Data Backup & Remote Backup Solutions from – Welcome
    I'm trying this for my off-site backup. There's unlimited storage for $4.95 a month. Good deal. So far setup was easy and the initial backup is working well… but since I'm trying to backup 110 GB, it's only 3% finished after 15 hours! Will this really take 20 days?
