Also, now that the semester is (finally!) over, I've started a summer project about blogging for educators:

There's a track for people new to blogging, and also a track for people who want to learn how to build a student-blog-network (that's how I teach my classes). I'm working on the materials now, and should be all done by the end of May. Meanwhile, it's an on-your-own-schedule type of thing, ready for anyone who might want to join in (several people have joined the blog network already!).

HODIE: Idus Maiae, Ides of May

Alia voce psittacus, alia coturnix loquitur.
The parrot speaks with one voice, the quail another.

Tutius in parvis poteris consistere rebus;
Intra fortunam disce manere tuam.

Aeternum sub sole nihil.
Nothing under the sun is eternal.

Amantes amentes sunt.
Lovers are lunatics.
