WordPress for presentations is a great idea. I couldn’t follow live so appreciate this more than a pp. WordPress can post replies to tweets too;-) #pressEDconf19 #IndieWeb

Replied to HyperDocs: Evolution, Purpose & Intention by Aaron DavisAaron Davis (Read Write Collect)
I find the whole ‘HyperDocs‘ thing interesting Stephen. I think that the online nature of GSuite has led to the association. However, as Alan Levine has shown with thinks like SplotPoint, the answer does not always have to be Google. The challenge is the ease of use, especially in regards to the...

I’ve read a bit about Hyperdocs over the last few years. It has never made complete sense to me, it seems to be trying to recreate webpages with google documents.

I wonder if https://glitch.com might point to a better way? It certainly would solve the template problem…

Replied to Random Access Poetry: The Day Before Writing by dogtrax (dogtrax.edublogs.org)
This month, in connection with April’s random designation as Poetry Month, I want to use images and photography and art as inspiration, and after a call out to some friends on Twitter for some help, as I wondered how I might access a random Creative Commons image from Flickr when I need one, I have settled on a couple of paths forward.

Hi Kevin,

I love the random so love this idea.You mentions a couple of my toys/tools along side some others.

The Random Flickr blendr was originally thought of as a sort of contemplation toy, so I avoided making it easy to grab images. I guess I could make that easier now there seems to be a purpose.  I think FlickrCC Stampr used to have a url parameter to kick off a search I’ll look at adding that back in at times.

Side note, I remember Ben Rimes Poetry for People blog. Now gone but discussed here: Come Write Poetry With Me This April! – The Tech Savvy Educator

Update, 1-April-19 : I’ve made a couple of changes that might be useful:

On Random Flickr Blendr I’ve added a pause button and move the links for better screenshotting. I changed the links to flickr shortlinks so they can be read from an image (Not very accessible!)
