Links of the Week October 24th, 2008

Did you miss me?  It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted a Links of the Week…  I’ve been busy.  Honestly I’m finding it harder and harder to identify unique and outstanding mind stimulating reading material.  Maybe that’s because I’ve been reading so much especially over the last ten months?  Maybe it’s because I’m not [...]

Links of the Week August 29th, 2008

So last week nineteen of you voted on keeping the weekly links around and 84% cared enough to give me the thumbs up to keep hitting you up with these things.  As a lot of schools have already started back and Wofford starts back next week, although I’ve already been in my MBA class for [...]

Is Hosted Search Really Ready for Prime Time?

In my years that I’ve now spent in higher education, one universal truth I have found is that nothing quite moves a project along like when someone much more important and much less web savvy than you deems an issue worth addressing.  Such was the case only a couple months after I had started at [...]
