After experiencing a number of frustrations with email lists and the limitations of a traditional web site, they started the Oklahoma Wine News blog.

Collaborative Thinking

But I'm pretty sure that this will come down to UConn and Oklahoma for the final with UConn winning - pretty obvious. Some chance perhaps that a Baylor or Louisville slip by Oklahoma but that's a stretch.

Live Streaming of Music Online: Coming Full Circle

Portals and KM

In the late 1890s my great aunt liked to listen to music but the only place that you could hear music was the saloon in her newly-organized town in the Oklahoma Territory. I am on a Greek island today but can listen to such great live music shows for South Louisiana online ( Great Louisiana Radio for Zydeco, Blues, and Cajun Available Online ). It is a common accepted practice now but a few years ago it was not possible. Now you can even do it from your smart phone.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Like many post-WWII couples, they started a family right away and I was born ten months later in Oklahoma, where they moved after my father's discharge from the military. This is a break from my SXSW notes. Many celebrations are being held today to honor St. Patrick. This day has special meaning for me as sixty seven years ago today my parents married in St. Louis.

It notes that “long before the rise of Facebook, Twitter and MySpace, people found innovative ways to use technology to interact.”
