I'm happy to announce that, starting today, my first novel, Darwin's Daughter, is available for purchase as an eBook for $3.99 from Amazon. You can read it for free if you are a Kindle Unlimited subscriber or you can check it out for free as one of your monthly choices if you are an Amazon Prime member.

Here's what Saudi Arabia looks like (looking eastward from the west of Riyadh about 30 km).  We went out to the "red sands" to have a BBQ.

Halfway through Power Searching with Google, their foray into MOOC, and I aced (100% on the first try) the mid-term assessment.  Perhaps it was a little easy.  I do plan to finish the course and look forward to more expert tips. So far, I've utilized all the things mentioned in the class before, although never consistently, and being reminded of them in this class is probably a good thing.

I'm in the middle of taking the "Power Searching with Google" class (http://www.powersearchingwithgoogle.com/class?class=1&lesson=5) and I found it amusing that the host couldn't admit that hashtags were made popular by Twitter, to be followed shortly later by an emphasize on how to search Google+ space.  This is even more amusing because in an earlier video with the Google Engineer, +Matt Cutts, he claims that Google takes its objectivity seriously.  Word to the wise: it's examples like this that undercut your objectivity.
Otherwise, I'm finding the class interesting, and just the right amount of video to activity balance, with a good balance of covering the basics to moving towards advanced knowledge.  Looking forward to continuing it.
