Tim Weiskel had a nearby office when I first started at Harvard Divinity School (HDS).
Tim Weiskel was the environmental professor at the CSVPL (Center for the Studies of Value in Public Life) which no longer exists at HDS. This was around 1996 and Tim was creating websites around environmental issues–also–sending his children lessons on the net. He knew how to embed radio shows from London well before our WAV and other compression formats. Tim is a double PhD and Rhodes scholar who also teaches in the environmental program at the Harvard Extension School. Here's a link to his current course: http://www.summer.harvard.edu/2009/courses/envr.jsp#s-130
