June 2007

Real estate agentry is changing.

(The article mentions that some realtors now let people access MLS listings on the Net for free. What it doesn't mention is that most of the realtors that do this require you to register. If you're looking for a real estate agent in the Triangle area that gives away access to the MLS and doesn't require you to register, check out Brick and Garden Real Estate. Very cool.)

One more sign that the grading system is broken: Florida cheerleader graduates with a GPA of 8.08. And she states that she could have done better. (But then again, she "plans to continue cheerleading at MIT next year," so this is an unusual student.)

One way to fix it that I think schools should consider is Valen Johnson's "Achievement Index".

UPDATE: first link is now fixed. Thanks, John Henry.
