+Spencer Easton it's not completely out of the question, but it would obviously present some challenges.  Happy to discuss!

Got good quantitative bones, a healthy set of analytic teeth, and a passion for helping schools use data to run better?

Hoping will improve flow / reduce frustrations arising from multi-account login issues and Goobric.
 
Goobric update

Many teachers use Google multi-sign-in in the same browser session, which is notoriously problematic for Add-ons like Doctopus, in particular when trying to get it to work with the Goobric web app.

While the best practice is to use separate Chrome user profiles for your GAFE and personal accounts, I've just added some better handling in the error message.  When the culprit arises, a link now allows the user to quickly log out of all their Google Accounts and log back into the correct account, with an automatic redirect back to the Goobric web app.

I think the names and times sort the same way... can't remember which way though.  I think most recent is on top.

Harlem takes back the night -- and vanquishes my cynicism for a while.  An amazing jazz gospel choir performed for over an hour on the sidewalk in front of the Cecil restaurant tonight, with a growing audience, many of them holding candles. All I thought to capture was the applause at the end.  Words were spoken before and after the performance.  Not sure about what, but it was moving to witness.

Great context and hard evidence that the small high school transformation in NYC was one of the most important and successful school reforms in modern US history.

Maybe it's time when we ask the question "Does it scale?" we should be meaning "Does it scale down?" rather than always thinking we need to scale up.
