I wanted in. So I did what you might expect an over-enthusiastic suburban nitwit to do, and asked my mom to drive me to the mall to buy Ivor Horton’s 1,181-page, 4.6-pound Beginning Visual C 6. I imagined myself working montage-like through the book, smoothly accruing expertise one chapter at a time.
I remember doing this myself, except the book was SICP - Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs in 1998 or so
Amidst all the fuss of new Tumblrs (Britney! Beasties! State!) over the past few days, we’d like to point another, ongoing effort that’s really great: Tumblr Teachers. The brainchild of Girl with a Lesson Plan, Tumblr Teachers is a self-reported listing of the hundreds of teachers and education students who use Tumblr every day, and as a listing of great Tumblrs in that field it’s second to none. Check it out, and if Tumblr should be on the list, submit it here!
