The New iMacs

The new iMacs yesterday are very impressive. A lot has been made in the Mac press about the $999 iMac. If you check the specs, this is the iMac for education offered to everyone. Apparently though the restriction on the educational iMac for $899 for institutional puchase only has been lifted. If you log into the education store for individual purchase you can now select the $899 iMac. See You in a Few!

A New Venture

No, I am not giving up The Educational Mac. But I am starting a new adventure in blogging/podcasting/vidcasting. The project was born out of my passion and belief in the power of storytelling, in particular, Digital Storytelling. Having organized a film festival for our elementary schools for the past 3 years, I see the need for examples for the students. I also want to be able to show the power of the tools we have available today. So I am embarking on a personal project to be one of those examples.
Through my life I have not been very good at keeping a journal. As I get older I am feeling a void because of the lack of a personal voice. Therefore this project is going to be my life story told in reverse from where I am now. The project is called Rewind. I realize it is in some ways a vanity project, but it is something I want to leave behind for my posterity.
However, I also see it as a way of putting my actions where my mouth is. If you would like to visit my personal time machine on occasion feel free to visit Rewind. The first entry will be available on Monday, Sept. 4th.
As I began, The Educational Mac is not going away, I will be back within a week with a new podcast, so...
See You in a Few!

p.s. I am going to try a few things with Rewind including submitting to You Tube, Google Video and maybe a few others. The Feedburner feed for the project is feed://
