Academic Aesthetic 146

wowhippo.gifThe rumors of my demise ... yadda yadda yadda.  No video this time, just an unedited monologue recorded with my newest gadget (see below).

  • Sorry for the delay.  I blame end-of-school-year-hassles, a trip to PA, a new apartment, and something else.

  • I have a new toy: The Creative Zen V Plus!  I used it to record this podcast, as a matter of fact.

  • Alas, Creative doesn't make any software or drivers that make the Zen V Plus Mac compatible.  Fortunately, these people made an open source program that gets the Zen onto my Mac!

  • It's easy to censor yourself.

  • When you post a link, you have no control over that site.

  • You're not just linking to that site now, but 3 months from now and 3 years from now.

  • Where do you draw the line?

No video this time, just wonderful low quality audio!

Wait ... what?

Show notes:

  • The wiki is getting more spam than legitimate edits. I'm dealing with the spam now, and I'll get to the real edits soon. No, really.

  • I'm beginning to like Ning more and more, mostly because it doesn't crash Firefox as often as it used to do.

  • The next Teachers 2.0 Groupcast will be recorded on the 13th. Come join in the fun!

  • Planning on upgrading the version of Drupal that's managing Should I go with regular or extra education?

  • Looking to find others willing to create Teachers 2.0 branded content. Are you interested?

Academic Aesthetic 144

Sorry for the delay, now on with the show!

Show notes:

  • Another nice audio comment by Chris Craft. Where's your audio (or video) comment? (And yes, I haven't edited the wiki recently for the same reason I haven't been podcasting.)

  • To make a podcast I need time, energy, and inspiration.

  • Usually I lack inspiration, but this time I needed time and energy.

  • Inventory is done! Hooray!

  • Are there times when we replace analog technology with a digital equivalent that isn't as good? Is digital always better? I want to hear your thoughts on this.
