  1. Alex,
    Thanks for posting this — it’s always interesting to see how faculty react to these sorts of presentations. Amazing how people are always so worried about keeping information off the net. It seems that the purpose of it all is really about making more information available. I just hope others will figure that out soon.

    All the best,
    Teacher, Harvard-Westlake School (LA)
