Griff Wigley and Jeffrey Holte

I had coffee last week at the Goodbye Blue Monday with Jeff Holte, a former Northfielder and a colleague who I worked closely with back in the 80s.

In the summer of 1986, Jeff and I were hired by an education division of McGraw-Hill (based in Eden Prairie) to help launch MIX, the McGraw-Hill Information Exchange, an online network for K-12 teachers and schools. We were among the pioneers using online networks not only to connect teachers but to offer classroom projects that connected students with other students around the world.
