What My Friends Are Up To

A brilliant live performance of É Isso Ai by Ana Carolina and Seu Jorge.

Time for another round-up of all the great things going on with my friends in the world of free-educational materials.

The biggest news right now is the mention of Jason and Textbook Revolution in This is by far the biggest coverage the site has received. Congratulations to Jason and be sure to check out the article. Our friends at Freeload Press were also mentioned. These guys are doing a great job of creating professional quality textbooks which they make available for free through the placement of ads. It's an excellent idea and a great way to cut costs for students without sacrificing content.

Next, I've gotten to know Peteris in Latvia, who's been doing an excellent job of gathering these free science audio and video lectures. He plans to create a proper database-style website soon, but in the meanwhile, see his site for a wealth of resources.

Over at Learn At Loud, Jon's posted some links to some cures for the Summertime Blues. My iPod is filling up with these suggestions ranging from a 9 1/2 hour rendition of Huckleberry Finn to some great iPod exercise mixes. Also, the LOL free archive has recently surpassed 1000 entries. Congratulations on this milestone in the growth of this excellent resource.

Over at Proftitutes, Beth added listed the Stingy Scholar as one of her top ten blogs. Proftitutes has some really interesting educational comentaries. Thanks for mentioning me. Also, visit the other sites on the list. They're some great suggestions.

Finally, I apologize for the sporatic posting recently. I've been busy with - among other things - a great new job, and I've been forced to do much of the blogging on the weekend. I prefer to have a new post appear every weekday, but thanks for bearing with me. I'm still committed to five post a week and I don't plan on changing that any time soon. Please keep up the suggestions via comment and emails.
