Hey everyone -- the stuff that Mark is recommending to us is required reading. We need to embrace our changing world and start coming together. This site is a perfect opportunity for ideas to be heard, revised, embraced and to be acted upon. Is anyone out there? Todd at SDSU.

Hi Todd,

Thanks for the input. Knowing there is a live reader out there prompted me to add some more new stories today. My New Year's resolution was to get better at providing regular postings. If there is a topic you'd like to see discussed, let me know and I can put together a blog entry with some background information first.
