The weeks are flying by. I was hoping to backtrack on a few things this week but Week Six. Copyright, OERs and Creative Commons – 23 Things popped into my inbox and thing 11 is quite timely. Here and there I’ve blogged here about copyright quite a bit, but it is a constantly interesting subject. […]
A while back I was involved in a discussion about copyright on John Connell’s blog, I’ve just had another though about teaching copyright. I occasionally look through the stats for the school website and see were links etc are coming from. today I noticed some connections to youtube and myspace. I followed a couple up […]
Listened: Really Specific Stories – Michael Camilleri, I continue to really enjoy this podcast. A podcast about podcasting and podcast listening. Wonderfully it discusses the culture of podcasting rather than the type of mic you need. Michael‘s episode was very interesting his views on podcasting and the web had me nodding a lot. I grabbed […]

So Good, thanks David. Also, IMO, as much as possible should be accessible…
I’ve often made an end of year posts reviewing my blogging. I though this year I might review my blog reading. These are a few of the sites I’ve enjoyed. The blogs I try not to miss and some I would love to be able to emulate. Cogdog blog. Alan’s blog has been a constant […]
More testing of the script, pretty painless process. Once the html opens in BBEdit I preview and add alt text. Probably should improve script to respect existing alt text. I wonder too about the copyright implications. I see this as a way to point interesting photos and their real homes. Would anyone object to this […]
This is fascinating to me for a couple of reasons: When I tested it I’d forgotten I’d been using duckduckgo.com on all my devices for 4 months, so I could see a view file link. Obviously I’ve not missed google searches. Is it such a bad thing that you have to visit a site to download […]
