Moody Bible Institute (MBI)

I am proud of MBI, I am proud of that college and the degree I received fro them. However I went to the DL Moody mini museum they have at the school the other day and saw this. No matter how awesome you are...this kind of stuff is kind of creepy.
Here is what the sign says...Ewwwwwwwww.

NEW TOY and QUOTE OF THE WEEK...

I received an amazing gift this week. Someone sent me an Amazon Kindle! This is one of the cooled and most useful gadgets I have seen in a long time. Chiropractors around the world are hating this because it is causing people put put less books in their backpack saving back stress.
  • I can buy books form amazing (so far I have not seen anything over $9.99 that I would want)
  • I can highlight a section and add a note to that section or any section and then download what I had highlighted and written...this will be great for leadership training, I can send out some great quotes and not forget where they were (because they are saved and downloadable) and I do not have to spend time typing, I just copy and past!
  • I can upload a .txt document and take it on the road with me (maybe illustrations of my sermon notes and practice...I cannot change them but I can add note and highlight areas I need to give attention to) or I can use mobipocket (PC only) that converts a word DOC, PDF, HTML, etc...to a kindle file. I am not sure the difference yet but I will try and see what this software can do. I can also email files to my Kindle with that cost 10 cents...I am not sure why I would do this when I can dump a .txt file on for free...I will probably try it though to see what happens.
  • There are other cool features like basic web...yes, I can brows the web anywhere for FREE, not great graphics but FREE! I can use it as an MP3 player, and there is a feature called NOWNOW...you send in a question and they will research it for you. Don't let one of your students get hold of this or watch out high school term papers.
I am really excited about the future or reading with my Kindle! Thank you who ever sent this to me, it will be used often.

Oh yeah! I almost forgot the quote of the week.

I was telling my wife about the Kindle and explaining what it actually was and she said, "That does not sound like a Brandon gift why would someone think to give you that?" My intern said, "Really? It is technology...it screams Brandon except for the reading part."

Little do they all know, I am very literate. Great gift...THANK YOU...
