Out of town... at Canvas. So, the reason I was out of town was to attend an event at Canvas-Instructure headquarters in Salt Lake City! They invited some geeky teachers to brainstorm with software engineers to plan improvements over the next 18 months. It was seriously cool to be talking with actual Canvas engineers! The group I was in focused on a SEARCH feature in Canvas. It's weird that there's no search, right? Well... there will be, and you heard it here first! :-)

April 13: Alfred Butts. On this day in 1899 Alfred Mosher Butts was born, the man who invented Scrabble in 1938. So, if you have ever enjoyed a good game of Scrabble, think a happy thought for Mr. Butts today. You can read more about Mr. Butts at Wikipedia. I think I'd like to get one of these giant outdoor Scrabble games: doesn't that look like fun?
