I sent this out via email, but it's probably better posted here - greetings, all, I'm Grant - currently on paternity leave from my job as an analyst for the USDA. I signed up for this course to keep my mind engaged while on leave, and because I've been both student and teacher many times in my life - I'm always looking for ways to improve the way that I transfer information (both on a small-scale, like in a classroom or meeting, or on a large scale, like teaching a course to 24,000 people at once). Looking forward to working with you all!

If you haven't gotten my e-mail yet, check out my bio:

My name is Victor Lourng, and I'm a student just outside of Washington DC. I am a mashup artist, web developer, and graphic designer. I like to be awesome and and I often do things differently, coming up with unique ideas in the process.

This is an exciting opportunity for me and I look forward to working with all of you to see what ideas (as a group) we can come up with!

Sean -- thanks for creating this.  Sam

Let me second Sam's thanks for setting up this group.

Welcome to the LCL - Group 808 Community!

Hey guys, as I mentioned in my email the other day, I'm a graduate student working on my thesis this semester, so I may not be able to be as active in the group as I would like. With that said, it would be great if I could get some of you to be moderators for the group. If you would like to help out, just let me know and I'll add you to the moderator list.
