Adobe Slate

I just found out about this free app today. You can download it from the iTunes App Store. It is only for the iPad at this time. I created a little story and added images and a link to it in just a few minutes. You can search for public domain images from inside the app. You can read more about it here:

LinkedIn is Acquiring Lynda.com

LinkedIn has announced that it is acquiring training company Lynda.com. In the interest of full disclosure I mus admit that I have completed dozens of courses at lynda.com and consider its video courses the best training available.

“Through the acquisition, LinkedIn has revealed some formidable ambitions. Eventually it hopes to “map the global workforce” by creating profiles for each company, and job within that company, as well as the skill sets required to obtain those jobs. LinkedIn then hopes to connect workers to educational institutions and platforms like lynda.com where they can master those skills.”
