My Best Teaching Is One-on-One


Of course, I team teach and do special lessons, etc.


But my best work in the classroom is after the lesson is over --
going one-on-one,
helping individual students with their assignments.


It's kind of like with computer programs, walking the client through hands-on.
The job isn't really done until the customer is using the program.

Facebook or Basshook?

My wife was interested in a promotion of some sort recently. The promotion requires either facebook or one other social network login to register for.

(What? I have to share my social login stuff with them to join their promo? NO THANKS!)

But I did click the Facebook link.

Did I type in my address? I don't think so. That means the promo must have shared the address I typed in with facebook, without my permission.

So I got a "Just click here to complete your registration." mail.

I did not click.

This is not an "I don't think so." When me wife understood that the promo required facebook or something equally noxious, she said she'd do without the promo.

So, now I suddenly get hundreds of "so-and-so accepted your friend request" and such. I checked the headers and the raw source. These are not spoofs, these are from the facebook servers.

Not sure what to do about it. Even complaining to Facebook requires giving them more information than I gave LinkedIn when I signed up there.

Facebook is poison.
