Elearning Events Updated for 2009

The Elearning Events Calendar is updated with key elearning conferences and trade shows from January 2009 – June 2009.

What if… MTV Cribs for iPhones and Macs

It’d be cool if there was a “geek work cribs” that showcased the preferred tools of geek celebs (and minor celebs). If there is, I don’t know about it.

Rapid Syndication Surfing: FeedDemon & NetNewsWire
