Commentary By Ron Beasley
I remember a lot of things from my college days - parties, drunken field trips and did I mention parties? But I also remember hours at the chalk board doing physics home work with fellow student friends. Well that was the 60s - no calculators, no computers - the slide rule days. The academic social network was the blackboard, yes not even the white board. Times have changed - too late for me academically since at 65 I'm not academic anymore - but social networking is a part at today's students life. So why not make the blackboard of my academic life a social network? Well guess what? it's here - StudyUp. We have a link in the sidebar.
