Google sent out an email this morning reminding folks that their Wave service was disappearing at the end of April. While I didn’t find much use for Wave, I did see its potential for being a neat way to brainstorm ideas with other people. I logged on to my account for the first time since […]
I grew up around books. Shelves and shelves of them. My dad is an avid reader, so is my brother. I have to admit that as a kid, I read a lot less than them, but books were always a part of the scenery. My wife has a masters degree in reading education, and when […]
