Waiting For Superman
We loved this movie.

I'm left with the depressing feeling that we may not have the courage to let the market work to solve this problem.  If we resort to lotteries to ration good education too many students will be left to the 'Failure Factories' and too much potential will be unfulfilled just when our country needs all the help it can get.

Charter Schools are a great start.  But can't we expect more from Public Schools?  Doesn't everyone want every school to succeed?

We've had a lot of fun introducing our 'Half Price' wireless mesh networking product.  EVERYTHING is going to be wireless soon.  And the 802.11x standard is not going away for a while.  So customers: schools in particular but anyone that has a large space to 'light up', really need this.

Turns out there aren't very many economical solutions - that's was the same story behind FileSafe.  So it was second nature to invent something!  Irvington Community Schools loves it at their three campuses and I hope we'll deliver it soon to several more.

We've had a range of reaction to the name: ClusterMesh.  Everyone smiles.  What could be better?

Oh, and we got the Facebook page up: last week.  Over 30 friends already!
