IMPORTANT MEETINGS: THE LEARNING ANNEX & BLOGGING
The Learning Annex (TLA) is the most ubiquitous, valuable, entertaining popular non-academic learning institution in the country. It is completely democratic, with flyers everywhere, a convenient website, well-taught classes, and low prices.
Today, Wednesday, there will be a talk on blogging. I'm looking forward to it.
I had the opportunity to meet Bill Zanker, the founder and head of TLA, a while back. He founded TLA 25 years ago, lost control of it because of financial problems, and then managed to regain the leadership of his baby (... now quite a young adult, actually). I believe he is a man who loves to bring education to everyone. He is enthusastic, energetic, and especially optimistic... a real entrepreneur.
I've taken many classes at TLA and they have almost all been both useful and interesting. And the most recent ones have been among the best.
There is a huge variety of "how to's" and other topics, about all the things you'd like to know how to do. And they run in 15 cities in the US and Canada, including New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.
My impression is that TLA is getting bigger and better every year.
