SOME OF MY FAVORITE THINGS ON THE WEB
Wolfram MathWorld Eric Weisstein (Wolfram MathWorld creator) is a genius. It should be obvious why I love this site so!
The Professor Is In For those in (or considering) a career in academia, this site will surely help.
James Baldwin on Education This short interview [full interview here] with James Baldwin in 1974 at UC Berkeley makes a great point about the connection between cities and education, as it pertains to improving our system of education. I find this especially relevant given the current, and expanding, issues in education. I find this site: Son of Baldwin very nice, too. If you haven't noticed already, James Baldwin is one of my favorite people.
Soul Train Not only is this a great compilation of music - that will keep you grooving for almost 90 minutes - but it is accompanied by some great dancing! I love to dance.
