For the 28 school districts in Orange County, California, which have about 500,000 students, and the Orange […]

The year was 1999, and it was the eve of the big football game between Texas A&M University and the University of Texas. In the lead-up to the game, 58 students were building the annual bonfire when the unthinkable happened around 2:40 a.m.: the 59-foot tower of 5,000 logs collapsed, killing 12 students. News of […]

Chris Hoke is known to joke that prayer is a very important part of IT. As CIO at the University of Jamestown in Jamestown, North Dakota, and a former youth pastor, he should know. In nearly 25 years at UJ, he may not have yet guided the school out of the proverbial wilderness to the […]

If you think you’re a grizzled tech veteran because you can recall the beeping and pinging of a dial-up internet connection, say hello to Carl Fong. Fong got hooked on technology because of Pong, a rudimentary video game with a solitary black dot bumping and booping its way across a screen, redirected by digital “paddles” […]

Some students are using 3D printers to retrofit vehicles for disabled individuals—installing brake and gas pedals on steering wheels, for example, or ensuring that seats are molded in such a way that occupants can safely remain upright.

Belting out Lionel Richie’s “All Night Long” in front of thousands of people was a liberating moment for Claudio Zavala.

Testimonials

Alliant is very pleased with our experience working with the TrueLine Publishing team. We were not only impressed with the caliber of the whitepaper that was produced, but with the level of attention from the team we partnered with. They were very detailed oriented and I appreciated their follow up. They even offered to refresh the article and invited Alliant to participate in some of the design features.
