A real go-kart made of legos

As you can see from the video it doesn’t drive fast. In fact, I would say it rolls, rather than drives at all.

Today’s Apple Announcement is all about Student Engagement

“If you’re a HS student in the US, it’s not so easy. Not only social pressures. Stats show that if you enter as a freshman, you have a 70 percent chance of graduating in 4 years. Worse in worse-off areas. Technology can change this. It can make things better.” – Phil Schiller. Not just a [...]

Why Twitter Lists?: Put your favorite Twitter user’s tweets in context.

I recently posted a tweet that inspired this series of posts. I use lists religiously. If I’m not following you, you’re likely still ‘listed’ by me because I love your tweets but I want them in context. Lists allow Twitter users to organize the people they follow into groups. By segmenting your following list into [...]
