In case you haven't heard. We are doing some amazing things with Online Education at BYU-Idaho.

What started out as three pilot classrooms around the U.S. in 2009, BYU-Idaho's Pathway program has turned into a worldwide program serving more than 40,000 students in nearly 40 countries and 42 U.S.

Good read on how to make employee development/professional development more accessible and more appealing in an age when many employees would rather Google a topic than participate in formal learning. 

A line that resonated with me in this article...

"The more a platform integrates with learners’ work patterns, the more likely learners will be to recommend it to their co-workers."

As learning technology companies merge, there are fewer big players but more opportunity for better content and delivery.

Paisan's was recommended to us by a local while at a conference at the Monona Terrace. It was close by and has plenty of seating. I had the sampler and it was just OK for me. Not bad, but nothing I can rave about.

Food is fresh. Scallops are deep fried. Most food we had was deep fried and had little or no seasoning in the batter. Its OK food for the area but sub par compared other seafood restaurants I've eaten at.

I've had suddenlink Internet only for 5 years now and had a great experience with them. In 5 years the internet has only gone out maybe 2 times and never for longer than a few hours. The speeds have been consistent and billing has never been an issue. Be careful when using these reviews. It looks like most people only write one when they have an axe to grind.
