Facebook connects people, but virtual worlds make it alive

Facebook is a flat 2D text based pen-pal like online social networking website. We can send messages back and forth and keep in touch. But we can't have voice conversations easily because the premise of the site is set around text. If we truly want to get "connected" we need a visual representation with spatial proximity to "feel" as if we are truly connecting. Virtual worlds such as Second Life ( allow a person to create an…

Promoting Passion in Students Through Self Directed Learning

When was the last time curiosity took hold of you, causing you to stop and wonder?  For some people this happens multiple times a day, for others only once in a blue moon.  Regardless of how frequently or infrequently it happens, the bottom line is that it HAPPENS to all of us.

As humans we are driven by an innate curiosity from birth.  We have…

Travel and see more of the good stuff.

Last week, a new "amiko" in Uzbekistan asked for help with translating his letter to travel agents from Esperanto into English. This is what he wrote (in essence):


If international tourists were led to contact the people who will serve them -- chauffeurs, waiters, tour guides, and targeted sales people, Esperanto-speaking tourists would have the opportunity to speak with someone who speaks their language. They would be able to speak in a common language that was…

I'm currently attending the Teaching and Learning with Vision conference on the Gold Coast, and while my wonderful daughter has decided to wake up at 4am, I thought I would write a quick blog post.

Zero charge? Zamenhof?

To do this most vital of all themes justice, let me first say a few things about neutrons having zero charge. I know it says zero and suggests no charge, but the truth is that when a neutron decays, it breaks up into a positron and a neutrino.

Because of its assigned job in an atom, neutrons add only weight, not strength . . . they can't because strengths are forces against opponents. Njut doesn't have opponents;… Continue
