eLearning choices for content developers -- Docent, Inc. looks like a good choice for enterprise-level courseware development & curriculum management, while Qarbon provides a more open, ad-hoc tool/service (quick-and-dirty tutorials).

I expect many companies can justify using both tools, assuming teams can effectively match content to delivery technology. However, content providers are likely to take the "path of least resistance" in creating and publishing their goodies, which means Qarbon is likely to see higher numbers of content creators/publishers in a given period.

As an example, I introduced a project manager to the Qarbon tool and 3 hours later he'd built two tutorials for his project constituents. In that time he'd downloaded and learned the "builder", then created and published the actual training content.

Date Night! On those seemingly rare occasions when everything falls into place and events proceed as though following the script of a romantic classic, it's good to savor the moment. I've been savoring now for 28 hours... My wife and I escaped our home last Saturday night to enjoy an evening of unfettered relaxation. We'd engaged the kids' favorite babysitter, and left the house with a simple plan, only 3 generally-defined destinations. We arrived for Catholic Mass at the Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis at about 4:30. We were early, and discovered a wedding party just departing. As we entered the church, I was drawn back to my childhood attendance of Mass at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Sleepy Eye . Though the church of my childhood is somewhat less grand than the Basilica, the notable similarities helped inaugurate our evening with pleasant reminiscence. Once Mass had concluded, we returned to the car and drove the 3 blocks to the Walker Art Center
GullFOSS - Sun Microsystems joins porting effort for OpenOffice.org for Mac We can only hope that there'll be some excellent cross-pollination between Sun's team and the folks at NeoOffice . NeoOffice has done a good job of delivering added value to OOo, and it would be a shame to see that good work fall by the wayside as the OOo core evolves to include its own Mac-native UX. I'm sure mine is not the only voice encouraging the teams to find ways to cooperate and bring the best of both to OpenOffice's Mac user community.
