Nothing for me today, really. The Apple TV product sounds interesting but I am not sure I would use it that much. The iPhone, which will certainly get the most press and has been the most speculated item from the Apple camp in years will excite those folks who get into phones. I’m just not one of them.

Music Meme

This little “thread” is traveling through the edublogosphere and it is summer (as D’arcy says)..so I want to play as well. Plus, it is lists of things. I LOVE that…and I know that is why High Fidelity is one of my favorite movies. So, here goes (for right now – I call rights to change): 1. Music that changed my life Laurie Anderson – Big Science (and seeing her live) SHE IS THE DEFINITON OF TECHY-FEELY IN MY MIND Bette Midler – Live at Last Jim Croce – Time in a Bottle Rickie Lee Jones – all of it but… Read More »Music Meme
