Do We Indeed Have a Future? George Takei on Star Wars. by Bil Simser

George Takei (rhymes with Okay), probably best known for playing Hikaru Sulu on the original Star Trek, has always had deep concerns for the present and the future. Whether on Earth or among the stars, he has the welfare of humanity very much at heart...

Signing Time and Vista by Bil Simser

Scott recently posted an update (his third or fourth on the subject, I've lost count now) on using the Signing Time DVD series to help babies learn to grow. I just wanted to send out a nod to Rachel Coleman and her company, Signing Time, as well. Since...

This is totally cool. An SD card with a built-in Wi-Fi adapter for uploading your pics to Flickr, Facebook, and other sites. About a month ago John Bristowe showed me some Nikon camera that had Wi-Fi capabilities so you could upload your pics directly...
