I have been living with a cracked screen on my HTC 1S for a couple weeks now.  This phone looks fantastic - hoping for an invite to purchase.
 
Bored by #OnePlus #InsanityWeek ? Six phones in three days is a bit of a snoozefest. Now that it’s Day 4 let’s double that and give away 12 phones in 24 hours.

1. Share this post to public and tag at least 2 friends in your own post.
2. Fill out the following form: http://bit.ly/OPInsanityWkD4 (it only takes 1 minute!).
3. Go insane!

Interested in the 2014 flagship killer? A new winner will be chosen and announced every two hours so the sooner you enter, the better your chances are. Things are going to get crazy up in here. The contest for Day 4 starts today at 1.00 pm GMT (7.00 am CST) and will close on Friday, October 17 at 1.00 pm (7.00 am CST).

Today's board, considering how to feature Insight-based screen for or about students.  A departure from the existing Data-based display screen for students.

Ideally, I think it might be divided into "going on now", "upcoming considerations" type areas to help.   Maybe something about following a trail and these are the signposts to help stay on track.

CSU will likely need to build a local version, but we would love a product from a startup or other company that had a solution we would host on campus to collect the insights and then distribute them as email, text, or app notification based on user preference and relation to the student.

We just had a 1.5 day session with Campus Labs discussing how we are using their Beacon product, which offers a subset of this functionality, but does not have an API to allow posting or retrieval of the Insights from outside products, which is critical for functionality.  It does have some ways we could do it, entirely within Beacon, if we wanted to give up on Notifications on a Mobile app in the short term.  But, I am of the opinion that for students to want to use this, it needs to be on the mobile platform primarily, with equal functionality elsewhere.

So, app developers - who wants to build this and sell it to a bunch of schools?  Are there any companies doing this?  +Jason Calacanis often says that education is the largest growth opportunity area for Silicon Valley to embrace.

I'm proud to share that Matt Creighton's game Mutu is now on the apple store.  And Android.  And available for windows!  And you can play it online for free (but that's not nearly as good as the tablet versions)

It's really pretty darn good, and looks to get better.  He graduates in December too.

friendly and knowledgeable staff. I drive my car up , usually one of my kids sleeping in the back, and wait for a few minutes while they finish up on the previous car. then it's my turn, and I drive my car into the bay where they call out what they are doing and offer to change wiper blades and then based on mileage the fuel filter and cabin air filter in addition to the oil. great for when you don't want to get out of your car. been going here for years.

Shugyo dojo has three different martial arts taught within it on different days of the week. Monday and Wednesday are Shudokan Karate followed by Tai Chi. Tuesday and Thursday are Aikido. I attend the karate class led by 6th-degree black belt Sensei Timothy Shafer. Together with Sempai Deb Shafer, karate is taught in a dynamic methodology that is rooted deeply in the traditions and culture associated with Okinwan Karate, and some addition drills and learning based on deep investigations of body mechanics and other martial arts. Great for people who want to know the "why" of karate. These classes will help expand mind, body and spirit. Ages 13+ welcome!
