- Interesting: 420 Characters by Lou Beach. This "book" is a collection of short stories, designed to tell the whole thing in the length of a "status update". Warning for the sensitive: some are a bit crass.
- Statistical: Generic Names for Soft Drinks by County. Is it a Coke, a soda, a pop, or something else altogether? Apparently it depends on where you live, almost with precision.
- Very cool: 3-D Printing Is Spurring a Manufacturing Revolution. My guess is that, in 5 years, this technology will be mainstream-- and in 10, it will have changed international trade permanently.
- So fun: NBA 2K11 (Jordan Challenge + MJ: Creating a Legend). I'm not really a gamer-- certainly not hardcore-- but this looks like so much fun.

I'd love to see this worked out into curricular models and nuts-and-bolts concepts.
Also, I think this approach is highly compatible with some of the tools for learning that the Classical model of education employs. And it also sounds a little bit like some of Charlotte Mason's ideas.

The conference will include lectures on Friday evening, Saturday evening, and Sunday morning; an open Q&A Lunch on Saturday; and worship together on Sunday morning. The cost is kept as low as possible to make it easier to attend: $10 for members/regular attenders of HWPC, and $20 for non-members/non-regulars.
