Hi Arron, thanks for this link (and many others). I remember when I first got involved in educational blogging it was fairly simple to pull together tags from any blog (via technorati ), twitter and flickr and display them on one page. I made a few for different educational events in Scotland. A marvellous opportunity now lost, hopefully to return.
Hi Colin, another enjoyable episode. You were interested as to how and were people listen. I am subscribed using Castro on my phone. I listened the the first half walking around the dark streets in search is a wee bit of exercise. The second on my commute the next day driving home.
The natural history angle made this episode even more interesting than usual.
“Wee piece by me. Make reducing teachers contact time the priority https://t.co/OaXqJ5RVKB”
Sweeping education reforms have done very little to change the fact that in the UK, being born well is by far the surest route to prosperity. Since the 1980s, the degree of social fluidity in Britain has plummeted with more people experiencing descent than ascent.
Not particularly surprising, but worth keeping in mind.
A microcast about my experiences at two events last weekend.
An interesting and wide ranging podcast Doug.
I liked the concept of seams rather than seamless technology. Likewise I’ve found a bit of friction useful. Slows things down and gives you time to think.
The decentralised session sounds like an interesting way to run a session, it is, it might be too easy for experienced confident speakers to take over such a session, so perhaps needs a fairly egoless leader. Sounds so like yours went very well.
I think you asked for microcast suggestions? I’d be interested on your take on the IndieWeb as compared to federation.
@claylowe I enjoyed your audio, thanks. I saw this today which I though was apt:
Podcasting has become a huge undertaking for people, with seasons and episodes, sponsors. It should be imho like leaving a voice mail to a few friends. Nice thing is today it can easily scale up to millions of friends.
I am enjoying these, I tried something similar with out the politricks:
Not too reliable.
This microcast covers ethics in decision-making for technology companies and (related!) some recent purchases I’ve made.
Delighted to see Doug’s microcast in his RSS feed. I also love Doug’s wrestling with his technology stack. Over the years it has gone back and forwards and is always fascinating to read Doug’s thoughts on the whys and wherefores.
Read: Bloodchild by Octavia E. Butler ★★★☆☆
Read: Cloudstreet by Tim Winton ★★★☆☆ I probably would not have finished this if I had another novel to hand, but I did enjoy it more as I went on. Family saga, I imagine this would speak to Australians more than me.
