    Hey! For anyone feeling inspired by the Software Carpentry talk... I mentioned to a few that I participated in a 1 Day Software Carpentry Teacher Training and was asked for my key take aways. So, I put my notes in a google doc for anyone else who might be interested:

    A little tangential, but also insightful for any aspiring teachers, here are my notes from a 1 hour Teach Math Webinar offered by Stanford:

    Nice selection of videos and interesting conversations. I learned some new things about how routers work and now feel more inspired to play with setting up my own server. :)

      I haven't been there before. It's near Target Field however the Twins are playing an away game so that shouldn't impact parking. @Jeff, could you chime in here?
