Reflections on teaching

It was a joy to teach brilliant and enthusiastic students who learned
by leaps and bounds. I hope I had in some way accelerated their
learning, widened their horizons and helped them enjoy computer
science even more.

Dearer to me, though, are students whose aha! moments are few and far
between despite their efforts. They were the reasons why I taught
before, and they are the reasons I want to return.

Wasn’t that such a wonderful thing to do? <impish grin>

Go and do a good deed today.

Update from John Wiegley

In 2004.12.01#note1, I expressed my regret that John Wiegley
took his blog down because of plagiarsm. Here’s an update:

Hello! to everyone who wrote after my website was taken down: After
thinking about it for a couple of weeks, I decided it was too harsh a
measure. I hope everyone will continue to visit again. I’ll start
posting blog entries again tomorrow.

Yay!

PHP photo galleries

I’m looking for a file- or MySQL-backed PHP photo gallery that allows
you to tag photos for later searching (maybe like del.icio.us?), as
I’ll be tagging pictures with topic as well as photographer. Most
image galleries seem to be strictly hierarchical (if not flat).

I’d like it to automatically create thumbnails, too. I hope
http://www.ipowerweb.com has gd or imagemagick. If not, I’ll just have
to do the image uploading and tagging myself…

Useful: http://php.resourceindex.com/Complete_Scripts/Images_and_Graphs/Image_Indexing/

The description for http://www.snipegallery.com/ mentioned being able
to search by keyword, so I think I’ll go for that one.
Gallery (http://gallery.menalto.com)
also looks useful.
