Randy Pausch

Today, Randy Pausch passed away. I blogged about his "Last Lecture" a couple months ago. In the final months of his life, he touched more people than most of us will ever touch in our entire lifetimes. He taught us how to live and how to look at life differently. Thank you, Randy.

Google Opens Up Knol

It's been a couple months since I have done a blog post (too busy starting a company) but today's announcement by Google on the general availability of Knol is one that I can't let slip by. Back in December when Google originally announced Knol, I did a blog post because I think it could be an enabler 0f what I have been calling "knowledge networking". It will be interesting to monitor how Knol is used and whether the author-centric nature of it leads to behavior that is different than how other services like Wikipedia are used.
