I love Ed tech conferences. The only place I don't feel guilty about checking social media while working. #gafesummit.

Ten years ago, we started bringing Google’s technology to enterprise IT, but it quickly became more than that. It became about work, and about redefining the way that people do it. Then, with whole cities and schools using Google products to transform the way they work, it became even bigger than our name. To celebrate the holidays, we’re highlighting some of the many 2014 moments that have gotten us to where we are – Google for Work. #googleforwork

Great search tips for students. 
 
Make sure your AP students aren't getting elementary school results. 

Teach your students how to filter their search results by reading level with these 4 simple steps.

Today is the 66th birthday of James Rigney, gone now these seven years past, who created the Wheel of Time series using the pen name Robert Jordan.  In his loving memory we launch this official Wheel of Time page on Google +.  

The picture above-right was taken at his desk in Charleston, SC, and the logo above-left is a gift given to Harriet by New Zealander publishing representatives.

There are a lot of great tributes to RJ being posted today, including these two which have caught our eye:

Rather than try to repeat these lovely sentiments, perhaps it’s best to let Harriet and RJ himself express themselves through their art: 

For James on October 17:

All things seem even now,
soft breezes, gentle sun.
The quiet water laps the shore,
its salty smell as rich as life itself.
October days can seem as mild as love
that moves the earth, October days
that hold me in you arms
whenever I draw breath of this sweet world.

New little lizards skitter
on the slate that paves
the walkway near the pond;
young goldfish join the scrum for food,
and love’s desire never dies, 
but is forever young.
© 2007, Harriet Popham Rigney


We have cast our fate upon the wind,
but let him who shivers cower behind.
Bind your courage around your forehead
and scramble upward,
for heaven in its splendor beckons
and all the starry skies belong
to him who dares.
© 2005, Robert Jordan


Just a few notes about the Google page.  In coming weeks we plan on making available photos that might interest you, as well as possibly a video or two.  If anyone has any requests about things you would like to see or know more about, within reason, feel free to post.  It goes without saying that trolls will be treated with contempt and removed at our earliest convenience; if you wish to rant, get your own page. This page focuses on the author Robert Jordan and his works. 

For those who haven’t heard, the manuscript for The Wheel of Time Companion (the encyclopaedia) was submitted to our publisher Tor in early September.  The scheduled release is November 2015.   Over the next few months we will be finalizing details on format, layout, and illustrations.  Some of your favorite WoT artists are part of this project, and we know you’re going to love the results.

Lastly, the Special Collections Department in Addlestone Library at the College of Charleston, repository of Jim Rigney’s collection of papers and various artifacts from his life, is now open again after undergoing extensive renovations over the summer.   The staff there, including Head of Special Collections Harlan Greene and archivist Josh Minor, are happy to assist visitors who wish to research this body of work, including material specific to the Wheel of Time.  Please be advised that visitors are welcome to take handwritten notes on anything found in the archives, but are asked to refrain from making scans, photographs, or other facsimiles of this material.  For hours and to give them a heads-up if you wish to view the collection, you can contact them through the “contact us” link on their very informative blog about the RJ Collection: http://blogs.cofc.edu/thetruesource/

But wait! There's more!
 
Statement from Harriet

This morning  brought startling news. A “pilot” for a Wheel of Time series, the "pilot"  being called Winter Dragon, had appeared at 1:30 in the morning, East Coast time, on Fxx TV, a channel somewhere in the 700s (founded to concentrate on comedy, according to the Washington Post).

It was made without my knowledge or cooperation. I never saw the script. No one associated with Bandersnatch Group, the successor-in-interest to James O. Rigney,  was aware of this.

Bandersnatch has an existing contract with Universal Pictures that grants television rights to them until this Wednesday, February 11 – at which point these rights revert to Bandersnatch.

I see no mention of Universal in the “pilot”. Nor, I repeat, was Bandersnatch, or Robert Jordan’s estate, informed of this in any way.

I am dumbfounded by this occurrence, and am taking steps to prevent its reoccurrence.
