This Is Why I Would Prefer Ideapaint Over an IWB In My Classroom As an Evernote Education Ambassador, I sometimes get to see products up close and personal.

» Napster, Udacity, and the Academy Clay Shirky Fifteen years ago, a research group called The Fraunhofer Institute announced a new digital format for compressing movie files. This wasn’t a terribly momentous invention, but it did have one interesting side effect: Fraunhofer also had to figure out how to compress the soundtrack.
