WordPress seems to behave very nicely on iPhone also, which is cool. Without the ability to copy and paste, though, linking will be a pain. Lemme see how easy attaching photos is…

… Hmm, don’t see an obvious way. No easy way to tag either. Oh well.

Loving the iPhone web apps. Here’s a quick list of the ones I’ve added:

TinyBuddy IM
Google Calendar (hoping they’ll improve to allow adding events)
The Weather Channel
Facebook
NewsGator
Starry Night (a must try!)
iChess
Netvino
Zagat

The new maps features are great too. Link a whole ‘nother Christmas!

Thomas Friedman and MIT OCW video

We were fortunate to have Thomas Friedman of the New York Times deliver the keynote for our milestone celebration. His speech, as you might expect was phenomenal. I’m thrilled to say we captured the whole event, including the keynote, on video which is now available on the MIT OCW site.

I promise…

Another great OCW article

in the Washington Post this time. Really an extraordinary run of attention to OCW, and great to see. Susan Kinzie’s piece is really great. It would have been great to have the Consortium URL in there, but I’m glad she gave mention to the group, and the mention of Highlights is great as well.
