Most of today's tags are from The New York Times over the past couple of days:
- Wikiversity, a wiki for educators to share ideas for curricula
- an article about college presidents who blog, despite being told by their lawyers that it is "an insane thing to do"
- more evidence that British people are sexier and have a better sense of humor
- A.O. Scott's love letter to Robert Altman, "Mr. Altman thrived on the shapelessness and confusion of experience, and he came closer than any other American filmmaker to replicating it without allowing his films to succomb to chaos. His movies buzz with the dangerous thrill of collaboration -- the circling cameras, the improvising actors, the jumping, swirling sound design -- even as they seem to arise from a great loneliness, a natural state that reasserts itself once the picture is over. A makeshift tribe gathers to produce a film, or to watch one, and then disperses when the shared experience has run its course. Everyone is gone, and the only antidote to this letdown is another film. And Altman made a lot of them, and now there won't be any more."
