Teach The Controversy About Barack Obama

Some bare facts.

Barack Obama says the PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE every time he sees an American flag, and he has an American flag in EVERY ROOM in his house. Some days it takes him OVER 45 MINUTES to get out of his house.

And I thought he was a whishy-washy Liberal with no values to speak of. I stand corrected.

The Education of Geeks and Freaks

Interesting article by a teacher about web design or development education.

In his experience, students learn one thing excellently, but don't learn anything about the other, which hampers their effective communication later on.

Oddly, I'm seeing the exact opposite. In most courses here in Holland students learn a tiny bit of everything, which in the end causes them to be unable to fill any role.

But maybe it's different in Canada.

Announcing a career change and life change

... and Opera hires Bruce Lawson. I already heard that rumoured in London, but it's good to see it confirmed.

Opera is steadily building up a world-class team that is available at conferences (yes, I'm looking at you, Apple) and otherwise.

Opera is clearly the new thingy ... well ... whatever the previous new thingy was.
