Bookmarked Etherpad’s Video Conferencing security: What do we do differently to Zoom? – John McLear

That’s the honest truth about modern software, it’s vulnerable. It’s ALL vulnerable so you have a choice to use something that is honest about it’s vulnerabilities or hides behind the door of closed source providing an ignorance is bliss situation.

Some great information and food for thought, @johnmclear is not trying to sell the product. Relevant to @dgilmour’s link to creativecommons & #OER I don’t think this is the time to pivot tools, but one to keep in mind.

Bookmarked Art Direction and the New WordPress Editor by Mel ChoyceMel Choyce

This is the foundation of the new WordPress editor. Take atomic pieces, and combine them to make whole sections and layouts. Best yet, no fumbling with floats if you want to put some text next to an image!

A nice example of what Gutenberg can do. I am not using it here, the old editor suits me and supports all of the IndieWeb plugins.  It will answer some of the requests we have on Glow Blogs when it arrive there.

Bookmarked “Bullshit and the Art of Crap -Detection” by Neil Postman (media.usm.maine.edu)

As I see it, the best things schools can do for kids is to help them learn how to distinguish useful talk from bullshit. I think almost all serious people understand that about 90% of all that goes on in school is practically useless, so what I am saying would not require the displacement of anything that is especially worthwhile.

Found in this tweet by @MarkRPriestley.

My link is to a pdf of the talk from 1969.

A good fun read with many cringe points, which of the forms of BS have you used? I’ve used a lot.
