VoiceThread Redux

I think I mentioned VoiceThread before - the marvelous web site that lets you present a slide show and record comments, captions & doodles. The other innovation of VoiceThread is you can invite others to comment as well, creating a visually guided dialog about... well, anything. One of my favorites: See also Kenya Escape, the incredibly powerful story of one family's experience in Kenya, during the election upsets...

ConnSense Podcasts

Chauncey Rucker's ConnSense Bulletin has long been a favorite of mine for news, reviews and updates related to assistive technology. It's quality stuff, and he taps into key issues. In addition to online articles and an e-mail bulletin, ConnSense also has begun providing podcasts. Maybe I'm a luddite, but I've never quite figured out how or when to listen to podcasts. Still, I began browsing the ConnSense podcasts...

David Pogue promotes the XO Give-one-get-one laptop

I blogged before about One Laptop Per Child's Give 1 Get 1 program. Kudos to David Pogue of the New York Times for putting the promotion in such a clear light, and for his review of the new laptop's features, limitations and capabilities. My son and I were talking today about whether or not this might be what we do for our holiday giving this year: something for...
