In the news: George goes to Washington, Red Tails, AT-AT urban legends, ILM

Yesterday, George Lucas spoke up for educational broadband at a Congressional hearing in his guise as chairman of the George Lucas Educational Foundation:

“Telecommunications provides the new learning platform of this century and is replacing the textbook as the medium through which a modern education is provided,” he said. “The world’s knowledge is now available online, far beyond what books and materials can provide in schools and libraries themselves.”

    That Chronicle article was truly worthless. I hadn’t heard that myth before and thanks to the stellar reporting and lack of visual evidence, I’m not sure I’ll remember it tomorrow.

    I’ve heard it before, though couldn’t for the life of me tell you where. Pictures here and here: I can sort of see where they’re coming from.

    I can forsee several different directors who could be vying for the Tuskegee Airmen film. I’ll be curious to see who Rick and George decide on.

    Hey Dunc thanks for the link there!
    I’ll be uploading many more Port of Oakland Cranes over the next few days, just took a Ferry ride last night and got some good shots.

    I’ll also upload the Port of Oakland crane pictures to my website.
