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!

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
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'.

Leadership in Trek

It was more of a tangential thing, a "cool to have" for my leadership portfolio for my EdD course.
