I am blogging like a madman (and the professor).

That’s a reference to a book about the creation of the Oxford English Dictionary.  (A wiki.  An admittedly slow-motion version, but still.)  The madman was the most prolific single contributor to the Oxford English Dictionary; he was, in fact, institutionalized in a hospital for the criminally insane.

My digital story about the Rally to Restore Sanity

New media has been posted to what is, I’m sure, an incredibly interesting blog.

This is my newest project … uploading media to a blog post.   (This isn’t me.  This is the guitarist Eric Johnson.  I don’t know how to play guitar.  I quit saxophone after the 9th grade.)

A reflection on the YouTube sensation (is sensation too strong?) called “Did You Know?”
