this is a custom PCL 3DOF modular phone holder with integrated cable guides. it attaches to the arm rest of my preferred work chair at home. it holds the phone surprisingly tightly despite the fingers reaching only a little way around the corners. i added guides for both the phone cable and my laptop, so i don't have to scrounge around on the floor to plug in. the "knuckle" is resistant enough to not sag under the weight of the phone, and all the swiveling permits enough freedom to always have the screen pointed right at me, no matter how much i slouch. :)

khan academy http://www.khanacademy.org/ is an amazing set of high quality video lectures available online. this slashdot artical about a teacher swapping video for homework and practice in the school seems amazingly right and awesome. for myself it might have made a very large difference in my perception of school and homework.
An anonymous reader writes "Wired reports on how freely-available lectures from Khan Academy are affecting both teaching methods and learning methods in classrooms across the country. From the article...

Actually, I'm told research shows it's better if the presenter is the actual teacher of the given class, and even better if his/her face appears in the clip. With the right technology, it's not that hard to create the mini-lectures. One colleague of mine does this a lot.
