The more I play around with Yabla, the more I like it. BTW - I mentioned Yabla in my las blog post.

Hi Gabe, it was great to meet you, too. The Yabla player is impressive! I love being able to look up words that are being said in the video. I've been listening to Chinese.pod for a while. They have a great website with radio DJ style lessons. But it's all audio, no video. FYI, they've come out with a Spanish version: spanishpod.com. Hope to see you again soon.

Yabla is great! The ability to slow down the video is extremely helpful. I think I'm going to spend some time with the French version.

That would be great.

re: Indian education in Japan

Thank you for the link. I wonder if this is an overreaction. I expect the slightly less impressive showings in math and science at the high school level are due to Japanese students simply being less fanatical than they were in the previous generation. In areas such as memorization of vast amounts of information easily found in references, I don't think this is particularly worrisome. The trend needs to be viewed in a holistic manner. Its important to spend some time outside of the classroom improving social intelligence, pursuing hobbies, etc. Recent trends may actually produce more successful students.

Note: None of this applies to schools in the US, and Hawaiian public schools in particular where math and science scores are plainly embarrassing. We are on the other end of the spectrum.

> is your blog published through Ning?

Yes. I've been considering setting up an external blog and pulling in just the technical postings, but right now its all through Ning.

Welcome Gabe! I enjoyed meeting you yesterday. I was disappointed I only caught the tail end of your Yabla talk. It sounded interesting!
