Vermont Blog Roundup

Some items of interest from the Vermont blogosphere this week:

• I was on an ACLU panel in Middlebury earlier this week where we talked about how kids should be learning about internet research tools in school. Champlain College professor Elaine Young is teaching just that. Here's her latest blog post about teaching social media in the classroom.

• Speaking of the ACLU, Shay Totten writes about their cool new clock at Chelsea Green's The Flaming Grasshopper. Creepy.

• Tanner at Highgate has been printing daily excerpts from a found diary. If you've been following these excerpts, as I have, you know that Arthur has been courting Jennie. Well I just looked at Highgate, and there's an entry from Jennie that says, "I cleaned all through my house today. Arthur was here tonight. He took Hazel + Louis home  from the hall. I've got him at last." Yay!

• Speaking of Arthur, ever heard of King Arthur Flour Lava Cakes? They look fantastic.

• I've said it before, but it bears repeating: Unringing the Bell is a first-rate, first-person parenting blog.

• This is the sort of date that I miss, having kids.

• What's so great about Vermont? Gophers. 

• Why does the MacBook Pro camera give you a mirror image picture? I have always wondered. Tech blogger Dan York answers the question and provides a solution.

• Speaking of Dan, here's a reminder from him about what's really important in life.

This is the sort of date that I miss, having kids.

"Kids" plural? Congratulations! Penelope wrote a great article on the health benefits of coffee for Eating Well. If you happen to use coffee, because the kids keep you up at night, reading that will make you feel a little better about it.

Actually we only have one kid so far. But we hope to have 2 someday. It's weird, since we've decided we want two kids, I feel like I've started thinking of myself as someone who has two kids. Even though I only have one. It's like I'm just waiting for this kid to join us. It feels as though he or she is missing somehow.

So, not to nitpick, but Dyork doesn't actually answer the questions of why Macbook cameras produce mirror images, he merely confirms that they do. iGlasses is great. I use it too. But Why, Apple, why?
