Overheard on Twitter: JayPa Answering Questions

A lot of people still don’t understand why someone would use Twitter.

Here’s a good example. We’re hoping it’s a little clearer than @Oprah’s attempt last week.

barackresponse

Anyone can send him a response like that… it’s an easy way for him to interact with a large number of people.

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration.

Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
