What a strange service this has become.

Can anybody recommend a solid hosted email solution? I use Google Apps now, and now that they are pushing everybody to Pro I feel like I should at least shop around (even though I don't mind paying).

There is something about seeing historical photos in black and white that skew my perception of what life looked like. I know life was color, but you have to imagine the details.

Seeing this really opened my eyes to what the world looked like 100 years ago. This is a fantastic photo set from pre-Soviet Russia. Read the text on the technique the photographer used, it is basically a precursor to HDR using multiple black and white plates with color filters.

tl;dr: presenting just correct facts will cause audience to tune out, but presenting misconceptions first and then refuting them with correct principles creates far better learning outcomes.

Khan Academy should hire this guy!

"Obsession has come to have a positive connotation. Individuals and companies brag about being obsessed about this or that. But obsession is a psychosis, and the original meaning of the word is still valid."
