Career-Op: Back to school...for everyone

Career-Op: Back to school...for everyone
by Douglas E. Welch, ComputorEdge Magazine

Here we are in the traditional middle of summer, but I am sure you have already started to see the “Back to School” signs in the stores. It might seem early to be thinking of school, but the coming Fall is the time for considering all the things we have learned and all the things we have yet to learn, regardless of our age. Technology has become an important part of our learning, both in facilitating learning and learning how to use the technology itself. We would all do well to take a few moments to think about the technology around us, and how it helps or hinders us in our daily lives.

A sense of creative space

I caught this story on All Things Considered yesterday and thought it was worth sharing here.

James Prosek is an illustrator/artist who works out of an old school house in Easton, Connecticut. He spends his days painting pictures of fishing and the fish that are caught. Prosek has some interesting things to say about the importance of creative space in the creation of his art.

Online Article with links to photos, books and art work.

Note: A link to the audio version of the story is available near the top of the above page.

Web: TechStudents.net

Created as a way of connecting small business with IT needs and IT students who need experience, TechStudents.Net is the brainchild of JJ DiGeronimo. The web site helps to place IT students with smaller companies who need part-time IT help but don't necessarily need a full-time intern.
