The universe is expanding. That’s the core of the Big Bang Theory. As the cosmos gets older, everything in it moves apart. Not to delve too much into such esoterica like Hubbles Law, I need to affirm - אני מאמין - I'm a believer. In the last week I experienced something akin to this phenomenon in my own universe. Let’s call it the Virtual Big Bang.
Last Wednesday I participated in the first #jedchat., organized by Dov…

Of all the recent retrospectives of the late Steve Jobs, the one that has had the most impact on me contained the observation that he “hated traditional market research”. It was a comment made by one of the guests (advertising consultant, Cindy Gallup) on the public radio show “The Take Away” on Friday, October 7. You could hear the entire recording here.

This will lead to a few more. What follows is a survey with 15 questions (an auspicious number for Pesach). The goal of this short (5-8 minutes) questionnaire is to find some answers to the question of how and…Continue

I am a Jewish Education technology and art resources teacher/facilitator for a conservative Jewish religious and Sunday school. You can find me at the school's computer and technology lab every Wed and Sun, yet like many of you, spending a lot of my own time in preparing school work and blogging.

“I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date!” I feel like the white rabbit. You know, rushing hither and yon, trying to figure out how to get where I need to go without being too distracted by all the tweets, network posts, and blogs I follow; not to mention the old technologies like the printed word and emails. There is so much information available to us. If I miss a day of twitter, I feel it’s a catastrophe.
I’m not a technical neophyte. I sort of…
