One thing made me cheer, one thing made me weep

Cheer-inducing: Khan Academy has added computer science courses to its lineup, and they’re great.

Tear-inducing: Scott writes about the most important thing in his wallet.

Any minute now, my whole gang will burst through the door with Jane among them. I just got the text from the airport to say they’ve picked her up. She had an amazing summer. We’re so happy to have her back.

    How lovely to have your girl back. To have her at all. I loved that post about the fortune – especially when I finally got the image to load and saw what it actually said 🙂
