I’ve been fighting an upper respiratory infection all week long, and today I’m staying home in hopes of sending this bug to its death.
But I can’t seem to sleep, daytime TV is too dull for words (except for a showing of A Mighty Wind on Comedy Central this morning), and I’ve got several neglected RSS feeds in need of a severe pruning.

The rise of open-source mega-universities. “The world’s top universities have come late to the world of online education, but they’re arriving at last, creating an all-you-can eat online buffet of information. And mostly, they are giving it away.”
OK, folks. Sudafed’s wearing off. Time to go.
