Batman Gotham Knight

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).

Limits of Responsibility – ASTD’s Big Question for March

The Learning Circuits Blog: Scope of Learning Responsibility

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?

Oprah’s Online Training – Part 3: The blog

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

My economic stimulus rebate is going to…

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

New poll on Feed Readers

I’m curious what you all use for your RSS feed readers. How do you keep track of the blogs you read?

If you choose “Other” leave a comment below and let me know what you use. I’ll add it to the poll.

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.

Woman grows onto toilet seat

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.”

Emphasis added:

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.

Oprah’s Online Training – live experience review

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
