In teaching you will learn

aka multitasking in a social network environment.

So Marcky was working through the topic "plant classification". I am told he was to read through dicots, monocots, and spores.

Meanwhile, I was scanning Li and Bernoff's "groundswell: winning in a world transformed by social technologies". Next, I began juggling e-mails, facebook updates, and Google searches.

Then I took a trip to the garden patch that we call our very own "fern gully", and clipped samples of, erm, ferns.

After a quick slide prep of a spore specimen, this is what Marcky discovered under the microscope:

Interesting, heh! Now for the bonus part. I just learned that dried fern fibers can be woven into bracelets and cellphone cases.
