Ken Morrison's insight:

I am sharing this slideshare for multiple reasons.  #1: Even if I didn't like the content, I would share it as an example of a beautiful presentation. #2 I do like the content. There are many important quotes and great points on the convergence of learning, culture and technology. I also like the interesting 'contents' slide that showed images instead of bullet points of what would be covered.  Thus, there was not one bullet point in the presentation.

If the average American teen sends a staggering 3,000 text messages a month, you can be sure that there are more than a few letters, commas and apostrophes missing.

Ken Morrison's insight:

I truly enjoyed this podcast about the recent history of sports and culture and broadcasting. It is 50 minutes long.  My favorite part is how in the 1960s, so soccer players refused to wear Adidas shoes for profit.  Althought they were offered a payment that would have equalled one year's salary a few years earlier, they hated the feeling of selling out.  There are important parts of this podcast that help us explore how, when and why war vocablulary entered the world of sports. This is an excellent discussion about the history of sports in the second half of last century from one of the top sports reporters in Europe.
