Some Links

I'm technically still on break, but here's some links to articles I found interesting.
I get interested in these things since I work specifically in educational technology.

On Break

The semester is over and I'm going to take some down time from the blog (among other things). My apologies, but do check back in a few weeks.

Bin Laden Dead - Within Walking Distance from a Catholic Church

As news comes out about the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden, we learn a bit about the compound where he was staying. Apparently, it was designed with huge, thick walls and a maze-like entrance. One thing that flagged the mansion (once identified) was that it had no phone or internet connections. Given the expense of the place, that seemed odd.

Still, while technology played a role, it was old-fashioned intelligence that ultimately located him.

Some other miscellaneous things:

That last one strikes me. Here's a church within easy walking distance from him. I know nothing about St. Peter's except that it is Catholic. What significance does that have - that here is a place that should worship God and proclaim His Gospel within walking distance from the headquarters of a mastermind of terror.

What do you think?
