CCIT’s Fast Five

Fast Five

In the word’s of the immortal Ol’ Blue Eyes* himself “The summer wind, came blowin’ in from across the sea.”  And now, just as quickly as it came – it’s passed us by. <sigh/>

Oh well, no time to dwell in the past – it’s back to school time! Here is this month’s collection of our favorite articles, blog posts, videos, and editorials that have recently crossed our desks.  As always – please share links to your favorite “must reads” in the comment section below.

*PS – to our newer blog readers, if you don’t know who Ol’ Blue Eyes is, then there is truly no helping you!!! (kidding of course).
