The Dark Knight is coming out on July 18th. Everyone has heard of that. And I can’t wait.
But did you know about Batman Gotham Knight, the animated DVD (also downloadable) coming out on July 8th? Oh, yeah….. Batman gets the “Animatrix” treatment (well, sort of).

What is the Scope of our Responsibility as Learning Professionals?
That’s the question of the month, and it’s clarified a bit in the above linked post:
Do educational institutions and corporate learning & development departments have responsibility for supporting Long Tail Learning? Do they have responsibility for learning beyond what can be delivered through instruction? If so, what is their responsibility?

I had the opportunity to visit the blog connected to Oprah’s “A New Earth” course on Eckhart Tolle’s book. I’ve been looking at this training experience over the last few weeks from the perspective of a corporate training professional. You can see my thoughts on the recorded sessions and the live sessions as well.
Something that is hard to get across to executives who see blogs as strictly online personal journals is how a blog . . . → Read More: Oprah’s Online Training – Part 3: The blog
How should I spend my economic stimulus rebate?
Over at Gather Little by Little (link above), Glblguy reviews his decision with his wife about what to do with his economic stimulus rebate. All of us (in the US, anyway) have the same decision to make. There are, as he points out, about 4 options:
Pay off debt Buy stuff Save/invest it Go on a trip/vacation
What do I want to do with it? Buy stuff. . . . → Read More: My economic stimulus rebate is going to…
This is one of the “prettier” explosions I’ve seen. Love the compression wave.

The sound of the shrapnel flying past through the end just completes the goodness.

Buff? Not Buff? (see more)
You rock the Buff. The wife’s chuckling stops now or she goes. Step away from the Buff. The wife’s chuckling is the best reaction you can hope to get.
Can’t we all just get along?
Woman Has Two Year Relationship From Boyfriend’s Bathroom – Slice of SciFi
I don’t even know what to say about this. I’m sickened and saddened at the same time.
Apparently a 35-year old woman had a phobia that kept her in the bathroom 100% of every day for an undetermined period of time. And her boyfriend never called for help until she started acting “groggy.”
The case drew nationwide attention after Ness . . . → Read More: Woman grows onto toilet seat
Orci & Kurtzman Tackle Man of Steel – Slice of SciFi
Bryan Singer is in talks with writers for the next Superman movie, “The Man of Steel”. Unfortunately, we have to wait until after the Justice League of America makes its box-office run, but I’m excited to see the Superman Returns crew back at it. Singer has stuck to his previous promise of upping the action in this outing.

Catch Up to Season Four | Battlestar Galactica | SCIFI.COM
Looking for a quick reminder after the two decade wait between season 3 and the finally about to debut season 4 of Battlestar Galactica? The video at the link above is 8 minutes long, hits all the right stuff, and is kinda funny too. That’s a lot to fit into 8 minutes.

Well, I was on the live session tonight (read about my experience with last week’s recorded session). For the most part, as I expected, the experiences were the same. There were some bumps in the data stream early on (and once later), but it got ironed out within about 15 minutes, so I was satisfied with the transmission itself. I was very worried at the beginning because the resolution was dropping significantly at times to . . . → Read More: Oprah’s Online Training – live experience review
