2009-05-22T10:59:50.243-07:00Earlier today, a friend inquired via my Facebook page as to why this page has gone silent for so many moons. The simple answer -- the convenience of (even more) modern publishing has grabbed my attention.

2008-04-19T20:54:52.369-07:00...to those that recognize this holiday! Reminds me of how Gmail saved the day a few years ago, and enabled us to have a wonderful (yet brief) seder!
2008-03-10T21:27:36.597-07:00Two interesting tidbits, shortly after the much-hyped introduction of this beautiful (yet not ideal) machine -- here and here.
Legos and other lesser construction toys have been quite important to me. I have constructed numerous amazing contraptions out of Legos. I built a four foot wide inkjet printer out of Legos (and a few things from the hardware store and a bunch of electronics).
I attriubute (his typo, not mine) a great deal of my understanding and ability with mechanical devices to Legos and similar construction toys.

2008-01-17T00:12:11.975-08:00Was in S Cal for the day today. Lots of absolutely random things caught my eye...but these two "artifacts" share the title of the weirdest things I saw in Los Angeles.

Krane is a professor emeritus of physics and has been active in teaching University Honors College courses since the program¹s inception in 1995.
"Ken Krane exemplifies how bringing OSU¹s best faculty together with highly motivated and capable students can leverage learning for those students, and for the broader OSU student body who enroll in physics," said Bill Bogley, associate dean of the UHC.
An innovator in science education, Krane most recently has worked to build a bridge between physics education and the curriculum for students at OSU on pre-medical and pre-engineering tracks. He has also supervised National Science Foundation-sponsored physics workshops at the university that focus on helping new physics faculty become better teachers.
In 2004, Krane was recognized by the American Association of Physics Teachers with its Millikan Medal, presented for outstanding instruction.
Krane chaired the Department of Physics at OSU from 1984 to 1998. He has written or edited nearly 20 books and monographs, as well as dozens of research articles.
2008-01-14T13:06:48.651-08:00It has been awfully quiet around here as of late. For that, I apologize. It's a mix of the usual excuses...two kids, busy job, lots of outside distractions ---- and a focused attempt to spend a bit less time connected to the Net each day. The iPhone prevents me from succeeding at that last point. Genius device, in so many ways. And the Google experience on it keeps getting better.
