Some of most jaw-dropping breath-stealing moments are when I see/hear how someone has used a tool, medium I have had in my hands many times, and completely does something I never even imagined possible. Creating within constraints is some of the best stuff you can try. The other day, Bryan Alexander ...

I know that marketers et al do not really look at my web site when they email me offering all of the great information "my readers" would enjoy. I can practically see the variable names in the spam bot template where my web site name and URL get inserted. No ...

... support Hack Education, support Audrey Watters. Do I really need to spell out the reasons? Are you reading her year end summaries of educational technology?
