Lets take it a step further. Give the teachers something of the equivalent of a online version of powerpoint where they can put all of their various media pieces together into one "lesson" along with any signs, etc. that they need and then save it. Come class time they can just pull it up and have e...

In some of these situations, it might be appropriate to consider sat phones. They'll work anywhere, most people should be able to figure out how to use them, and I believe it's possible to get set up with some sort of pay-as-you-talk vs the monthly recurring deal. It can be expensive, but for some s...

I've seen a lot of neat tools built on MySQL, too (including some of the good open-source wiki's), but even if the back end is in a bigger database engine (MySQL, SQL Server, Oracle, etc...), you still have an interface to develop & maintain. I'd love to see some sort of framework put together that...

I recall a "tech talk" type of meeting in Pleasanton a year ago in which I suggested a wiki-model for attaching info to names put up on the web in a big family tree. I said that with trepidation and full knowledge that we're at the mercy of people making mistakes with the data, leading us on wild g...

Actually, I prefer they line up too, and had thought it was both uncommon and also often taboo in any sort of a "professional" setting, hence why I'm asking :P When I'm coding for myself, I line them up, when I'm coding as part of a team where someone else may actually need to look at my code, I've ...

Considering some of the past conversations on this and other related topics, I tend to think the entire "record-meeting-and-send-elsewhere" scenario whether live/prerecorded sent via internet/satellite/ISDN/etc. is a very difficult thing to discuss here. While there are a number of technical approac...
