Interesting Links Post 28 June 2010

This post is late this week. Why? Totally wrapped up in ISTE. OK I did spend some of Sunday visiting the Mummies of the World exhibit at the Franklin institute and then a trip to Betsy Ross’ House. Hey if you are in Philadelphia you might as well take advantage of it. Since then I have been meeting with friends at the SIGCT open house, a couple of dinner meetings, booth duty in the mornings, and sessions in the afternoon. I’m actually writing this post from a session that is not as interesting as it could or should be. I’m too too tired to move though. I will go find food once this is done.

I am on Twitter @AlfredTwo and I hope you will follow me if you are a Twitter user.
