@fourtonfish Here is a pixelated gif poem I wrote using @glitch. It is a found poem lifted from the #IndieWeb -Dev chat as we worked with @drewmcweeny on understanding some CSS and Bootstrap basics: https://a-poem-about-css.glitch.me/ #ds106 #clmooc #edu522 Featured image: have no fear flickr photo ...

Hi Greg,

I’ve been thinking about your glitch about css for a while and took a mo yesterday to google duckduckgo and  do this: CSS Gradient animation.

Bookmarked Are tiny conferences and meetups better than big ones? (Doug Belshaw's Thought Shrapnel)
Over a decade ago, a few Scottish educators got together in a pub for a meetup. This spawned something that is still going to this day: the TeachMeet. I’ve been to a fair few in my time and, particularly in the early days, found them the perfect mix of camaraderie and professional learning.

Doug quotes How to Host or Attend a “Tiny” Conference

eight pointers for running a successful ‘Tiny Conf’:

  1. Keep it ‘tiny’
  2. Make it application and invite-only

I think I agree totally about the value of small. Not so sure about invite-only might miss some serendipity…

There have only been a few TeachMeets in scotland recently, I wonder if it is worth keeping TeachMeet.scot going?

I wonder if the problem is part of the solution? As I slowly explore the IndieWeb ideas and tools I find that quite a few don’t do exactly what I want. So I slow down. Think. Tweak. Often delete a draft.

For example, I am starting to understand Indigenous, I’ve Micropub posts set to be drafts. I don’t like the way my theme presents these posts. I remove the auto generated excerpt, tweak the title and perhaps the quote. This helps me think the post through. It becomes a little less knee-jerk.

I’ve a long way to go. I get distracted, meander, I click and like, but I think the IndieWeb is making me a happier blogger.

Reposted Back to the classroom – Ian Stuart – Medium by Ian Stuart (Medium)
Now I have a request…… who would like to collaborate to develop Notebooks for courses? I must admit I tried to do this previously but the teaching community were at the early stage of becoming familiar with the technology. I feel this has moved on. So going to try again and use what I have learned. Drop me a message and lets start collaborating and sharing the workload.

Ian Stuart returns to the classroom, which can only be a good thing for the school. He is looking for some collaboration.

I worked with Ian at Glow and his knowledge of  and enthusiasm for OneNote is amazing. A great opportunity for D&T collaboration.

Reduced post to micro.blog by trying to be intentional as I play. Assume folks who want know have me in readers. And syndicated replies or threaded conversations from other networks make little sense. Wonder if this is better approach of if all the content goes everywhere.

Hi Greg,

i think it is a better way. I am trying to do that here. My main RSS feed doesn’t have status formatted post. Only post categorised micro go to microblog (I think I’ll change to just using categories soon).  The category for this post ‘reactions’ doesn’t go anywhere, unless I forget to take off publicise to google or post to Twitter via The friction should help with the intentionality.

It gets complicated as replies through micro.blog don’t, as yet, get posted here and replies here don’t point, AFAIK, at a particular micro.blog post.
