Writing & Grammar: Myriad Issues

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

like this method: pretend that the word  myriad  is the phrase  a million , and use it the same way: We saw  a million  fireflies rising from the lawn. We saw  myriad  fireflies rising from the lawn. Notice that you would not say "a million of fireflies." " Therefore you would not say "a myriad of fireflies."  by Jennie Ruby  Use myriad as an adjective, not as a noun, says  Bryan Garner , author of  The Oxford Dictionary of American Usage and Style. Get it? Threesome?

Communities / Social Networking and LMS Merger

Tony Karrer

Mzinga is a merger of KnowledgePlanet (an LMS provider and also the maker of the eLearning simulation tool - Firefly) and Shared Insights - a community / business social networking software company. Also, if you go to the solutions page , it doesn't mention Firefly. Update 12/7/07 - Great comments from David Wilkins (see below) including: user-generated content is going to change eLearning; anyone who thinks otherwise or who is not yet planning for the shift is going to be left wondering what the heck happened in just a few years. I'm not sure I quite get what that means yet.

There was a time I chose to sleep only a few hours a night. commuted between continents for months and then from the East Coast to West Coast each week for years. believed I could achieve higher productivity by simply sleeping less.

Product Review: Mzinga OmniSocial

eLearning 24-7

Software simulation tool (Firefly) and Mzinga Publisher are extra, i.e. there is an additional cost – it is not automatically included in the OmniSocial product.  It would be nice if Mzinga listed these two offerings with the wording of “additional or add-on cost&# on their web site. What is it? I say to myself. It looks like nothing I have seen before on the streets.  I go in for a closer inspection… Vehicle. OmniSocial can be a standalone, or be integrated with your LMS.  Confusing, right? Car Key. But the real WOWSA is in the social learning component. Categories.
