I heard a VP here talk about how the university has over 1700 forms that are still printed out and routed in paper copies. I had two of them when I started here almost 2 years ago and I've narrowed that down to 1.

I would like to have that form routed electronically. The sticking point is electronic signatures. One would think we'd have a process like that in place. Every person I've discussed this with says, "Yes! Up to half my kingdom for that ability!" (Okay, that's a paraphrase.)

So I'm searching. I'm sending emails. I'm asking strangers on the street. I know there are commercial software applications that can do this, but I keep on believing an organization of this size has something...something....they must. Right?

The Blinking Caveman


I'm beginning to see more and more educational SL builds, such as this one coming up at St. Edward's University. This planned build will help students explore the concepts contained within Plato's allegory of the cave. I think that is a fabulous use of the technology.

Elvis Has Re-entered the Building

Yes. It's me. And I'm not even ashamed of it. I've been feeling the stirring for a while now to come back to the blog. My millions of readers are sure to be excited beyond belief.

What's happened in the interim, you ask? *shrugs* I dunno. Stuff.
