    • Archiving Tweets: Are You Missing the Moment? I find myself people missing maybe the easiest and most sensible way to curate, publish sets of curated tweets. When storify announced it was biting the dust/pooping the web, amongst the rush to jump to some other hosted platform or use my arcane tool, what I noticed was about 90% of the ways people talked […]

    • Cowbirding to the End A tweet of ends #digitalstorytelling gem @cowbird to shut down: https://t.co/IRIyymTJcYThis makes me so sad. — Bryan Alexander (@BryanAlexander) February 8, 2017 The standard opening lines here would be my woeful admission of how little I had written in that special storytelling space. It would be wafted with moth-ball scented excuses. You can more or […]

    • #TDC1500: A Daily Create Odyssey Some of the best experiences doing the DS106 Daily Create are taking on one that you think is maybe not all that special, interesting, and falling into a magic shiny rabbit hole… in the act of just letting the mind fly open and also stumbling across the unexpected trigger. I’m responsible for today’s one– I […]

    • Jamming with Light My Fire As it happens, I had just finished lighting the fire in MY woodstove, when I clicked over to Alan’s post and listened to his rockin’ version of Light My Fire.  I retreated to basement, found the tenor guitar, used the Guitar Toolkit app to find a few chords and a Dorian scale in Am. I […]
    • Web Makers / Web Breakers cc licensed ( BY NC ) flickr photo shared by concretecandy The web is a fabric we weave and wear together or tear apart. Posterous yesterday announced a new feature- the web they wove back in 2008? Thrown away in 2013. To you read URLs? I bet they changed the title of the post from […]
    • Natural/Unnatural PhotoGifs Two more for the GIF pile of ones made not by downloading video clips, but using my own photos– the ds106 assignment is Photo it Like Peanut Butter: Rather than making animated GIFs from movie scenes, for this assignment, generate one a real world object/place by using your own series of photographs as the source […]

    • What Other Class Has a Live Call in Radio Show? cc licensed ( BY ) flickr photo shared by cogdogblog The radio studio was in my hotel room in Washington DC on Tuesday– in town for the EDUCAUSE ELI conference, Jim Groom, Martha Burtis, and I (plus friend and guest Steve G) did what we could to keep ds106 radio on schedule — even pushing […]

    • Stingy Facebook Gets None of My Media 2009/365/47: Facebook FAIL by cogdogblog posted 16 Feb ’09, 10.05pm MST PST on flickr Even before the rounds of flack today. about Facebook’s Terms of Services, I’ve contended that Facebook is Stingybook with media — it will suck in your media (flickr, YouTube) etc, do with it what it wants, and then it does not […]
    • The Dog is Back in the House Underwater Camera Fun by Noel back in Zurich posted 23 Mar ’08, 2.45pm MDT PST on flickr My week of no blog and commenting elsewhere has passed, although with most of the week being travel and NMC meetings and then fun at Mardi Gras, I really did not get out as much and spread the […]

    • Be a Blog Mentor for Al Upton’s miniLegends Yesterday I wrote of the power of using twitter as a “CallOut” to get help or participation or just say, “Hey, we’re hanging out over at this cool web place.” And late last night, another example twittered my way- getting a tweet from both Sue Waters and Al Upton. Al does these fantastic web blogging […]

    • A Week of Blog Abstinence (almost) It was almost a year ago I reflected (not the first, not the last), on the subtle power of blog commenting, which to me is still as vital a part of the ecosystem as pounding out new posts (or incessant barking). I was just nicely reminded of this by a comment on a 3 year […]
    • Get Rich from those Unwanted Powerpoints (after winning Norwegian Lottery and cashing in Nigerian Bank Funds) Wow, I really hope PPTExchange is a parody, please say it is so… Are you the kind of person who writes their thoughts down in PowerPoint? Did you ever think that your presentations might be worth sharing -or even worth money? We’re exactly those people, and we thought: Wouldn’t it be nice to have a […]
    • Blog Seeds Sprout Workshopping Itavailable on flickr “Who is taking a picture of me?” This during my last presentation at UNITEC. This 3+ year old photo was recently discovered by Karen (partially in the left side), and was taken in one of the workshops I did during a visit to New Zealand in November 2004. This workshop, or […]
    • A Pitch for NMC’s Online Conference on Web Video Disclaimer: I work for NMC… We are running our Spring NMC Online Conference with a theme that originally floated through the 2007 Horizon Report, what at one time we were calling “The Small Video”. Just in the last few months, I’ve been tracking how much more prevalent the use of video has become as a […]

    • Colophon of the Week Submitted for the Colophon of the Week (once I look up a definition of what the heck a colophon is), from the Newsdesigner blog: This site was coded with rudimentary HTML, PHP, CSS and BEER. The 3-column CSS layout was adapted from one found at Position Is Everything. BBEdit helped wrangle the alphabet soup, and […]
    • Newest 25 Cent book from the Pine Thrift Store: Bill G and His Road Ahead (10 years later) My latest 25 cent investment from the Pine Arizona Senior Center Thrift Store is “The Road Ahead” by Bill Gates, Nathan Myhrvold, Peter Rinearson. Far from being my hero, I was curious where the road he envisioned back in 1995 actually went. I’ve not read much yet, but flipping through, I have to grudgingly admit […]
    • Not Ready for Prime Time: feed:// I forgot who’s WordPress blog I was surfing this morning, but a mouse hover over their RSS link turned the cursor to a question mark, and clicking the link actually auto subscribed that feed to me aggregator. The link was written differently than the typical link: feed://www.somedude.com/blog/feed/ That is correct, note the feed:// protocol on […]
    • 1000 Monkeys Pecking At PHP… … would likely program my current project more efficiently. This is one of those textbook examples of how not to build software, but in then end, good enough will (hopefully) be good enough. I am working an updates to an online application system we developed last year for one of our professional growth programs (where […]
