I wonder if anyone in the 70's, when Atari came out, could have imagined this :)  A pocket Atari console, in an atari cartridge no less!

Adieu, LiveMocha

Well...seems like LiveMocha is going away.  The approach that I liked about LiveMocha was that it utilized social networking, and networks, for the purposes of language learning.  So, me - being a native speaker of Greek and English, I could earn points by teaching others those languages and  I could use those points to the in turn learn something new.  It allowed someone to be

Soul-Sucking Leadership

My team and I just finished presenting on Assignment 2 for our Leadership course this past week.  In going through my notes, collected over the past month of meetings and preparation for this assignment, I came across the term 'soul-sucking leadership'.  It's not a leadership theory at the moment, but hey - maybe we can coin a definition and become famous ;-)  What do you think?

Leadership in Trek

I was looking around the web to see if I can find anything on the Leadership in the fictitious universe of Star Trek.  It was more of a tangential thing, a "cool to have" for my leadership portfolio for my EdD course.  Hey, if you can't incorporate pop culture into school, what sort of fun can you have? ;-)  I came across this video from Forbes.  Wonder if there is something out
