Do You Skype?

Before you click on the link, hang in there with me. Skype is a free Voice over IP telephony program. It came out a few weeks ago. The same folks who brought you KaZaa (ugh!) created this marvel.
Now why am I excited about this? Well, I am a techno-geek. But I also have friends all over the country/world and my long distance bills look like the national debt.
The voice quality is excellent. The installation is easy. The interface is familiar - looks like IM. And, best of all, Skype is P2P, meaning it doesn't use a central server to store information like AOL chat or ICQ.
A great way for you to call London from Seattle and chat for as long as you wish without paying exorbitant long distance charges. Let me know what you think.

Dutch Schools

One of the reasons why the United States' reputation has suffered abroad is that we don't take the time to really get to know other cultures. That's the reason why I have invested much time in setting up these European Schools Online pages. I want you to get online and visit schools in other countries. Experience them. You will be amazed at the differences and the commonalities.
The Netherlands offers a rich selection of international schools because it has a large expatriate population. Holland is a wonderful tourist destination too. Enjoy!

High School Hazing

It's appalling. It's barbaric. It's evil. It's hazing.
The recent hazing incident at Mepham High School prompts us all to be more aware and even more vigilant. Practices like hazing and corporal punishment simply must be wiped out.
That's my opinion. What do you think?
