today: dealt with my first 'need-eye-bleach' blog spam comment in a long time; had to tell someone that we wouldn't integrate a tool they wanted; a 4 hour board meeting; a difficult project progress meeting.

I'm choosing the second perspective on the day but am also very ready for the end of the day.

I'm covering being our LMS /VLE system admin while we hire a new Associate Director.

And today in unexpected questions: what quiz feedback statistics are empirically proven to be useful to students?
