Meeting with Apple

Last week I had a chance to meet (along with the Tufts Director of Academic Technology) with Apple to do a 2-hour brainstorming session about what we're doing at Tufts, what Apple is doing and if there are intersections worth exploring.

There really isn't much I can say except that Tufts President Larry Bacow has been in touch with Steve Jobs, and that there are a lot of intersections. The meeting was a lively conversation about a handful of different topics and there were more action items than I've seen from a meeting in a long time. The higher ed Apple person for this region is quite a guy, very impressed with his insights.

Oh, and I got to fiddle with the video iPod. It probably wasn't so good for me as I was already thinking it was something I might justify buying. Now I can't stop thinking about it and am having a hard time resisting the urge to make the lunchtime trip to the Apple store and get one. The primary thing that's stopping me is that one year I bought a G3 tower in November only to see a new, better and cheaper PowerMac released a little more than one month later.
