Quick links to my stuff:
POLI215 Sustainable Communities. The course I am teaching in Fall, 2011. Most of the material for this course is online.
POLI328 Civic Engagement. My Spring course. Despite the claims on the page linked to, it was not offered online. However it will be offered again in Spring 2012 and the syllabus and other material from last year are still up.
ThePolity.net. Commentary and analysis on citizen/government relationships. I've pretty much stopped updating this, but there is a lot of good material there and who knows, maybe I'll evolve it into something new.
Rally DeLand. Big fun.
Bill's Movies. I make short movies as a hobby. I will be adding completed works to this channel on Vimeo, where you can view them.
