  • Biz school uses consulting firm for overhaul: http://t.co/2XhTg8Za. Reminds me of Being John Malkovich where he goes through his own portal. #

  • Important post by @dsearls: Edging toward the fully licensed world. http://t.co/MvFEvLRJ #
  • After reading the @dsearls post, check out this paper on how our concept of licenses is legally flawed: http://t.co/eVwLop2Q #

  • @mosesoperandi Yes, and more data (via auction house scraping and combat log services), has actually diminished the learning in WoW. #
  • @mosesoperandi Then again, as a resto shaman, I'm predisposed to bitch about the unfairness of the WoW combat meters. #
  • @ZacharyDiaz Yes, exactly. #
  • Researchers to announce new model of Connected Learning: http://t.co/s7mCXGqn @mizuko #
