The Critics Have Spoken...

Critics can be harsh as my colleague, Mark Page, has reminded me. Indeed, some can be brutally direct:

There wasn't any real meaning to any of them.

... the rest of them suck.

They all had furniture and stuff in them. I thought they were all completely stupid.

I like them because they were all B&W and stuff.

It's easy to forget how things all started once. Enthusiasm, uncertainty, enlightenment, commitment... if only it followed such a neat, set, logical pattern!

How many of you would recognize yourselves in these comments at that age- and how little they do change with age despite the increased verbosity. Thank you, Coeur d'Alene High School for the insight- and enjoy the journey...

Nice to see that there is a new generation of teachers with real computer skills.
