You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?"

Don't let fear convince you that you're too weak to have courage. Fear is the opportunity for courage, not the proof of cowardice.
McCain, John (2004, September). In Search of Courage: Finding the Courage Within You. FastCompany, 51-56.
In the search for character and commitment, we must rid ourselves of our inherited, even cherished biases and prejudices. Character, ability and intelligence are not concentrated in one sex over the other, nor in persons with certain accents or in certain races or in persons holding degrees from some universities over others. When we indulge ourselves in such irrational prejudices, we damage ourselves most of all and ultimately assure ourselves of failure in competition with those more open and less biased.
J. Irwin Miller, Chairman of the Board (1951-1977), Cummins Inc. From 1983 letter about diversity at the company.

The Edublog Awards 2005 Nominations are open
Nomiantions are open for this year's Edublog Awards. The full post is reproduced below. Get your list together and nominate your favorites.
The Edublog Awards 2005
Welcome to the second international Edublog Awards - an annual event that recognises and promotes excellence in the field of edublogging.
This year I'm extremely pleased to be taking over the event co-ordination from your host last year, James Farmer. I'm very much looking forward to lively community debate and contributions this years awards, which have changed somewhat from last years format, in response to feedback. I hope to do as good a job as James and hope that the community will be positive about my management style!
First of all, the categories. This year there are ten:
* Most innovative edublogging project, service or programme
* Best newcomer
* Most influential post, resource or presentation
* Best designed/most beautiful edublog
* Best library/librarian blog
* Best teacher blog
* Best audio and/or visual blog
* Best example/ case study of use of weblogs within teaching and learning
* Best group blog
* Best individual blog
There will also be a Best of the Best award, which will be open to all winners of the 2005 Edublog Award Categories.
Nominations and Rules:
This year the nomination process is also different:
Nominations will not be made publicly this year, and all submissions will be treated as confidential. Instead, you are asked to email in your nominations.
While everyone is eligable to vote, only current edubloggers are invited to nominate contenders. If you keep a blog, and produce content which is related to education (even if you post about your haircut a lot too), you are an edublogger and are eligable to nominate. Please include your blog url with your nominations.
Each participant is able to make a maximum of two nominations per category. Self-nomination is perfectly acceptable, but you are encouraged to nominate the edublogs that you genuinely believe to be outstanding examples of practice - the blogs you refer others too. Please list your nominations in order of preference. You may enter the same person or blog for more than one award.
Nominations are open from 21 November to 4 December. When you have decided on your nominations for all of the categories, you can cut and paste the template provided into the body of an email, complete it and send to the awards email address.
The four most popular, eligible nominations in each category will be available to vote on from 5 December to 17 December. Winners will be announced live at a special broadcast awards ceremony held on 18 December 1500 GMT.
Good luck - and see you all at the awards ceremony!
