Boyce Thompson Arboretum photowalk

Date July 12, 2010

When you tweet about photography you tend to gravitate towards other local photos and them to you. This is how I came to know Tom Boggan a local former East Valley Tribune photographer who is now a professional freelancer. Prior to Easter I’d heard about this photowalk where Tom answered questions and shared whatever information […]

Socialnomics and social media in education

Date January 14, 2010

Consider the information in the video above. What is the purpose behind the video? If we define the video in terms of the rhetorical situation, there’s certain analysis that is evident albeit if I then explain to you that it’s an advertisement for a paper book, how does that change your consideration for the above […]

Google Lets Users Store More Files Online

Date January 13, 2010

For years I’ve worried about storage and losing files. I’ve been online continually since 1992 now and have way too many files. Everything anymore to me are zeros and ones, and a few years ago I moved to Google tools for most everything. I am a Google whore, just short of flying to a Google […]

Are you up for the challenge?

Date December 1, 2009

Reading Alan Levine’s blog post entitled “What? Another Do X A Day Project?” this morning got me thinking. See, I participated in National Novel Writing Month in 2004, 2005, and 2006, and last year I spent several evenings surfing through Alan’s (and D’arcy’s) 365 Flickr challenge. I knew nothing about this challenge and thought anyone […]

PodCampAZ: The Unconference you’ve been waiting for.

Date November 10, 2009

Last year several of my tech geek friends kept talking about this PodCampAZ thing, and I said “well that’s not really for me since I don’t podcast that much” (Been trying to this year, but it’s a shot in the dark). I didn’t pay much attention, and I didn’t want to pay for another conference. […]

Kindle vs. iTouch

Date October 22, 2009

Recently I was speaking with a colleague at Arizona State University who was eager to buy her first Kindle. I asked why she’d not considered an iTouch. She just shrugged, and I shared some researched I’d done last summer. Simply put you could buy a Kindle and read books, and that’s cool, but if you […]

How Twitter Will Change the Way We Live: A Response

Date June 7, 2009

Common Craft Twitter Video. Watch this for a great Twitter overview. Hi, My name is Devon and I have a problem… No seriously though, I’ve been on Twitter for almost two years now, and yes, when I explain it to others, they look at me like I need a padded room and some Cialis. In […]

So Mr. Adams, what kinda music do you like?

Date March 1, 2009

In Feb 2009 I wrote a post answer the question in the title above. For some reason, I posted it to my personal blog. Ooops. Here’s the link.

Twitter Map On Yahoo Pipes

Date January 6, 2009

My friend Alan Levine posted on Yahoo Pipes and a clever little bit of code that gives you a map of your Twitter followers. The code requires plain text Twitter password entry, so neither Alan nor I posted the actual map, but here’s a screen shot of mine!

Video Games for kids: Good or bad?

Date December 31, 2008

My daughter got some sort of V-tech handheld Dora the Explorer video game from my parents for Christmas. That evening she wouldn’t put it down, to the point where she played down the sidewalk and stairs to the truck, all the way home to Papa’s house and inside. She was totally sucked in. Claire visited […]
