Just Ask Me
Everything you wanted to know about Pocahontas but were afraid to ask. Here is the Dude posing in front of his big 4th grade research project, comparing and contrasting the images of Pocahontas as potrayed in popular culture (aka Disney) with what we know about the real Pocahontas . Not sure what triggered his interest in this - but he can get pretty fired up with the way Uncle Walt has the story all wrong.
Note the mix of old-school and new technologies - the obligatory poster board timeline and his laptop with PowerPoint.
Showed the pic to a co-worker with a 2 year old. Her response, "Wow, only in 4th grade and he knows PowerPoint." Obviously a new mother. The Dude has been working in PowerPoint for years.
