Last week was school vacation week and I was away with less than ideal Internet. I’m still not sure if that is better or worse than no Internet at all. In any case I spent a lot less time on the Internet than usual. That doesn’t mean I didn’t come up with a few interesting links to share. Hope you had a good week and that you find something of interest in this list.

The legislature in Washington state passed a bill to count computer science for math, science credit. About time we had another state give graduation credit for computer science. I sure hope this spreads.
