Luis C.K. just called me stupid for forgetting my password to his website.   It made me want to watch his new show -- Horace and Pete -- even more.  I watched the first episode and it's definitely closer to an off-broadway drama than a comedy.  Painful in ways that require a taste for artful discomfort.

American voters need to stop allowing us to continue like this...
Detroit’s public schools are failing academically and nearly insolvent, leaving residents to wonder how the city can recoup its lost population.

+Rafael Ribas You can push the "Goobric for students" extension to all of your users in your admin console. This can also be done directly from a link in an email sent to your students.  To send this link, be sure to click "send email notification to students" when attaching the rubric.  This selection is displayed on "slide 21" of the presentation above.

This is a really fun read.  Sometimes I do love how the internet has spawned all new sorts of sport around the manipulation of facts.  A whole new way to play games with one another;)
Some readers mistook bogus versions of Bill Clinton-Tony Blair transcripts for genuine exchanges between the two leaders.

FYI - please provide feedback if you're a user of Doctopus with Google Classroom. Hoping this time it's a fix... Thanks in advance for your help.
 
Just pushed a major change to the way Doctopus identifies the author of a Google Classroom assignment, which will require users to re-authorize Doctopus. I'm extremely interested in hearing from folks who were previously experiencing problems with Doctopus returning the wrong student author for an assignment, to understand whether these changes have improved the behavior.

+Melissa Lynn Pomerantz that shouldn't be the case. I just tested and I'm not seeing behavior that on my end. Can you refresh your Sheet, re-run and confirm it's still happening?

[Update] chromebookInventory is now more robust and should no longer give timeout errors for larger (1000+) device updates, as long as you keep the waiting dialog open.

This is already cooked up, and probably a better practice than what I'm doing.  Thanks to +Romain Vialard  https://sites.google.com/site/scriptsexamples/home/announcements/timeconsumingtasksandgoogleappsscriptadd-ons

So much yes.
Child prodigies rarely become adult geniuses who change the world. Originality is difficult to encourage but easy to thwart.

Thanks +Andrew Stillman! Been deep diving into UI lately and have some cool ideas, one in particular with you in mind. Definitely we should chat, I am back in Chile now but still on summer break. We are 2 hours ahead of New York time. Would love to chat anytime you are free!
