I seem to be shutting down for the summer. The creative void that blogging filled during the school year is satisfied daily by video editing and DVD authoring. The stuff I've been working on nowadays is a little abstract, maybe too abstract for my teacher audience, too high-minded certainly, but what the hay, I'll try you out.
Luckily for all of you, a coupla folks are stepping up to fill the gaps.
Tony Lucchese's been a consistent and bright presence 'round here, especially recently, clarifying one of my posts for an intractable commenter long after I had lost the patience to engage. He's going the career-to-classroom route and taking some upper-div math courses right now after a long absence. He's a good time in the feedreader and he's only going to grow more relevant as school kicks up again in *checks watch* 1,224 hours. See you then.
Way back when, I called H. the best blogger who doesn't blog, a great writer who wrote on an annual basis. She's done with that pace now. She's also a weird contradiction in terms, a smart blogger with a soft voice, the sort who'll cop to a class management deficit and then turn around to teach at San Quentin for the summer. Her recent post, Circumventing the STAR regime – some useful tips, is just savagely funny stuff, worthy of national syndication.
My thanks to both of them for keeping the blogosphere spinning this summer.
