Lately I've been checking out Mookti as a possible home for future Inkspot moderated chats. MOOkti is "the multipurpose polysynchronous virtual learning community" at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto. In simpler words, it is a veryvery cool learning environment with enormous potential. Some of you may be familiar with this kind of environment when you do MUSHes or MUDs or whatever it's called (as you can tell, I'm not an online gamer). Scott Snyder is a Mookti wizard and has been very kind in showing me around. I've built a little office off his tavern from which I plan on hassling his patrons and also learn more about the environment. MOVIES: Jeff and I tried watching DRAGONHEART last night. The dragon animation was kind of neat, but I wasn't too taken with the characters/story (I'm sure I will be flamed for this comment since I know the movie has some sort of cult following). Loved Sean Connery as a dragon, of course. GERMANY: Jeff and I are going to Germany for a week starting this Wednesday, by the way. I'll try to do some blatherchatting while I'm over there, but it depends on whether I can get online. If any of you know any German, I'd appreciate learning some Useful German Phrases.
I've started a sort of "blatherings" in Inkspot, by the way. Feel free to check it out and help me come up with a more interesting name than "From The Editor's Desk".

    Not long ago, I didnt give lots of consideration to giving comments on site page articles and have placed feedback even much less. Reading by way of your pleasant post, will support me to do so sometimes.
