|Long Description||"As scholarly as [it] is . . . this book about education happens to double as an optimistic, even thrilling, summer read." — The New York Times A brilliant combination of science and its real-world application, Now You See It sheds light on one of the greatest problems of our historical moment: our schools and businesses are designed for the last century, not for a world in which technology has reshaped the way we think and learn. In this informed and optimistic work, Cathy N. Davidson takes us on a tour of the future of work and education, introducing us to visionaries whose groundbreaking ideas will soon affect every arena of our lives, from schools with curriculums built around video games to workplaces that use virtual environments to train employees.|

Due to the winter storm here in Salem Oregon, we went off-line at around 1am on Saturday February 13th.
We have battery backups, commercial level internet and off-site redundant backups. But because most of the county lost power and our battery backups only last a couple hours, our servers all shut down. Internet in the area was out as well due to the ice storm. Trees took out power lines, phone lines and internet lines all over the state.
We restored power to the building through the use of a generator, but the internet was still off-line until crews could restore the cables.
We are still experiencing some intermittent issues because the servers didn't get a totally clean shutdown when the power went out and recovery checks are taking a long time to examine all of the drives.
Things should be back to normal soon.
Sorry for the trouble.
