New voices - Pete Reilly
Miguel challenged us to find new voices. Over the past week and a half I have been profiling new bloggers that I've found informative and intriguing. Today I conclude this series with a powerful new voice in the education blogosphere.
Today's new voice: Pete Reilly, Ed Tech Journeys
Pete is the director of the Lower Hudson Regional Information Center (LHRIC) in Elmsford, New York. Pete's not exactly a new voice in K-12 educational technology. He's been writing for years in print publications and is one of the writers for District Administration's blog, The Pulse. However, Pete only started his own blog last November. I'm glad he did. There's a reason Ed Tech Journeys was named the best newcomer blog for the 2006 EduBlog Awards. If you're not reading Pete, you should be. Here are a few posts to get you started:

- Historically, Europe is where most apparitions have been reported, but the U.S. is pretty fertile ground too.
Arranged marriages and Western romantic practices have more in common than we might think.
In his book In Praise of Love (2009), the French communist philosopher Alain Badiou attacks the notion of 'risk-free love', which he sees written in the commercial language of dating services that promise their customers 'love, without falling in love'.
