[TIPS] This can't wait - pop!Tech

Thanks to this post from Tim Lauer ( http://tim.lauer.name/2007/04/10/poptech-the-impact-of-technology-on-people/) I've just learned of this site that, in my mind, rivals Ted - and you KNOW how I feel about Ted.com, right? Go to Poptech.org then click the PopCasts link to arrive here: http://poptech.org/popcasts/

Now, listen to Thomas Friedman's (You know, "The World is Flat" guy) talk on why this current energy crisis, "...is not your parent's energy crisis." Then when you're done listen to a couple of the others. I've subscribed to the site so you'll be hearing more about it as new videos get posted. I'm sure you'll agree that this is excellent material for your senior high Economics students.

Excellent site! More proof that blogs are my personal professional development.

Thanks for this resource. I love reading your tips and have learned a great deal from you.
I agree, blogging is my professional development as well. It amazes me how few educators know about this incredibly valuable resource called social networking and Web2.0!
It has transformed my mind about education and unfortunately also made me impatient that more educators are not taking advantage of it.
