Bike Geek (April 28, 2004 11:08 PM)
Not relevant to anything but what's happening around the office... When I started at Maricopa, I found the building had a locker room available, and for about 3 or 4 years, I was an everyday bicycle commuter- you can tell be the later 90s vintage of my "Wacked Out Bike... «more»

Post-Blog Wrap of of PhotoBlogging Presentation (April 28, 2004 05:56 PM)
Well I think it went well. You just are not 100% sure doing an online presentation who is snoring at the other end. But we had some good discussion and some folks finally popped some images to a Conference PhotoBlog-- oops, I forgot the context. Last week, I presented "Publish... «more»

Pachyderm Walks, Dances, Flashes... (April 23, 2004 10:01 PM)
Just returned from an eventful Pachyderm Project meeting in San Francisco. Much time was spent refining an unbelievable thorough requirements document (100+ pages) based on the last few months of creating user scenarios, culling those into requirements, sorting, prioritizing, and refining them towards the specs the programming team will use... «more»

Doing double duty with the Teaching in the Community Colleges Online Conference (Tues-Thursday) and a Pachyderm Project meeting in San Francisco (Wed-Friday).

"The Blog" (April 16, 2004 08:09 AM)
I am curious if other educators have heard this from students newly introduced to weblogs- from the interviews I did last week for a photoblogging presentation and at other times, I have heard more than one student refer to a blog hosting web site such as TypePad, Blogger, Buzznet, as... «more»

An Aussie Park Named (Almost) After Us.... err... Before Us (April 15, 2004 06:33 AM)

The party from the January RSS Winterfest seems to be lingering on- but I am not festive. I get daily emails notifying me of changes on their site, which I am not following nor interested in. Four freakin' times I used the link on their messages to set up email... «more»

I have two presentations looming for the April 20-22 Teaching in the Community Colleges 2004 Online Conference, both related to creating online content out of primarily digital images. The wraps are still up, the ink is wet, and the typos run freely, but it is falling into place nicely. I... «more»

Shirt No Tie (April 9, 2004 04:15 PM)

Blogs Quiet on the Western Front (April 4, 2004 12:22 AM)
The cogdog has been busy, and hopes to be back barking soon. As a reprieve of insane early heat and sun in Phoenix (97 in late March is a bit much, and early), we have enjoyed a rare outbreak of weather with a few days of major, very much needed... «more»
