I fully believe that if games can be used to solve research problems, then games can be developed to foster high quality educational results.

I second this. I forsee further development which causes the user to be completely unaware of research too. Imagine applying it to all facets of gaming!

Here's an interesting article on education reform from the Wall Street Journal. I'm going to have to peruse both of the books mentioned.
Joel Klein reviews Special Interest: Teachers Unions and America's Public Schools and Class Ware: Inside the Fight to Fix America's Schools by Steven Brill.

So did you end up getting either one? Recommend one or the other?

I'm thinking of preparing a dinner based on the various video and tabletop games us gamers have played. Whether it's based on the red and blue potions of Zelda or foods that give you abilities in Final Fantasy XI, anything is fair game. I haven't played many of these games, so I'd like some suggestions of what games to look at. I'll take fantasy novels as well (think the Elven waybread in LOTR).

Here's the official Day 02:10:30 sauerkraut pic. Notice the nice pink color in the middle as the colors start to blend. I'm still waiting for the brine to get a little bit cloudy, but so far everything seems to be going as planned!

For anyone who's curious, I'm not using post time as photo time. Day 00:00:00 was 9:30 pm on 7/10/2011.

I think this is worth noting. Deleting circles can result in stream posts defaulting to a Private setting. While I definitely agree with this from a privacy perspective, it's worth pointing out for people who are accustomed to other channels where posts default to a Public setting.

So I work at this exhibit every Tuesday from 10am through noon. Definitely let me know if you'd like to share a story about an object special to you. I'm still working on mine .. kinda hard to pick something when I move consistently towards removing the need for "stuff" from my life.

You know, I've been trying to do this for 3 weeks. Somehow I missed these instructions which worked perfectly in about 3 minutes.
Using Google Calendar with my new iPhone 4 was not as straight forward as I had hoped. When turned the calendar function on within my iPhone’s Gmail account, I only got one calendar. (I actually have ...

Yep, it's official, I've now made biscuits and gravy. And yes, it was from scratch.

Well, it seems that in only 2 days my attempt at half-sours (those are pickles, in case you haven't had the pleasure of trying them) is moving along quite nicely!

New batch of sauerkraut started, this time red and green cabbage. Apparently, this is supposed to produce a pink sauerkraut. This is the official Time = 00:00:00 (dd:hh:mm) photo. Based on my previous attempt, we're looking at about 11-14 days for completion.

Story
Introduction
I'm a culinary adventurer. It's a combination of excitement and calm. There are no hard and fast rules in my kitchen, except where safety is concerned.

My most recent steps have started down the path of fermentation .. and that can lead all sorts of wonderful places.

I will most certainly be sharing my stops along this journey.
Bragging rights
No matter how amazing any recipe is, I will always share it.
