I might need a WordPress plugin than converts all links to run them through the Wayback Machine. Mansy days it feels like 90% of my blogged links are dead.

I used amber for a while & stopped for reasons i can’t recall. Used the archive option. Currently got a JavaScript that sorts broken links to my old, now gone school site where a lot of my early links pointed. I now use On This day, thanks Alan, to tend my links most days.

This is Vinay’s preferred option, and the only one he thinks is scalable and realistic. It’s “numerical” by which he means quantitative, not qualitative. You simply imagine that every human being has equal right to the planet’s “material bounty”, and then divide up what’s available, and how much they can emit.

Hi Doug,

Thanks for this link, I’d not heard Vinay Gupta before. A good listen although some of the verbal style grated a bit.  I’d heard the idea of fair shares, in relation to air miles, before and liked it. Possibly because I very seldom fly;-)

Available in glow now. Go check this out...I think it can have such and impact https://twitter.com/microsoftedu/status/1432401352165142528

Been doing something similar, but simpler, for a few years, with voice memos & notes. No auto data gathering but self assessment. Valuable.

Hi. There has not been too much nostalgia posting here lately (well actually not much at all, so there). Maybe last June? But who cares if I feel like dipping into my tech past, it’s there. I…

Hi Alan,
One of the first 623 sites! Blows my mind. Way beyond early adopter.

There should be a badge or medal.

It doesn’t take much experience with Microsoft’s OneDrive to learn that it is an unmitigated car-crash: it purports to be a productivity tool that makes it possible to share files quickly and easily.

Hi Nick, When I read this I was going to let you know that OneDrive had been rock solid for a while for me. I use a mac in school and at home. I didn’t get to write the comment.
On Monday arriving in school I opened my daily plans, a set of txt files in OneDrive, to find that they had not synced from Sunday at home. No plans 😖

Data.

Boiling down children, human beings, to data.

Data on maths and literacy.

That’s what league tables do.

They don’t demotivate me because I know they paint a tiny, incomplete picture of a school, a smaller one of a class and a microscopic view of an individual child. https://twitter.com/mark_mclaughlin/status/1428405387355623425

Data, can be done differently.

I keep being pulled by this site. Cc @IaninSheffield

What immediately came to mind this morning was the voice of Richie Havens … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rynxqdNMry4 (What other songs of freedom are there out there worth listening to?)

Redemption Song, ”Won’t you help to sing These songs of freedom?“ always worth a listen.

Replied to Shopping Sheet – Improving the Shopping Process During the Pandemic by Aaron DavisAaron Davis (readwriterespond.com)
The current pandemic has led to many changes in habits. One of which is that I like to be prepared when I go to the supermarket, especially when doing a big shop. Fine I may not last out the two to three weeks that Zeynep Tufekci flagged early on: For food, you can just buy two or three weeks’ wor...

Hi Aaron,
Since the start of covid I get a delivery from the supermarket once a week and make a quick trip to a smaller one in the evening. Newspaper from the wee coop early morning.

What I love about his post is the quote/  featured image. I liked it on flickr earlier.

Ten Lessons I Learned While Teaching Myself to Code

I’ve been messing around with code and scripting on and off since I started using computers. Never enough to get the basic stuff in my head long term. I suspect my aged brain as well as the lack of daily practise. I can still have “fun“.
