    This is fantastic! Can I repost the information “my” web page at the Examiner.com – complete with links and attribution, of course! Some of the discussions around the Samurai exhibit have been about the lack of content; now, that’s not my point of view because I think that it’s up to each individual to take responsibility for educating him or herself. But this goes a long way toward making a whole range of information available to those who want to take the time and make the effort.

    Thank you for your thoughtful comments on the iTunes U site, Nancy! You can most certainly repost the information–we’d love to get the word out to as many folks as possible about this new resource.

    This is so cool! The site looks great, and now I finally have no excuse for not learning from the many great lectures that I always see others running off to.

    Man oh man, CONGRATULATIONS! To echo Nicole, this is a big project that you’ve worked forever on, and it looks like the blood, sweat, and tears created a beautiful product. It’s amazing!
