Uh Oh Flickr, Here Comes SnagIt!

No sooner did Alan Levine have a bone to pick with Flickr, TechSmith’s SnagIt! comes along and (as far as I can see innocently) makes available a plugin to upload screenshots to the Flickr service. I think this is wild, because while Flickr is playing hardball with Alan (and certainly SecondLife screenshots are much more

Workflow

Just like the students who are shouting with glee about finishing their exams, I want to celebrate being done with the editing and posting of the 19 videos in the Great Lives Series Webcasts. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy the editing, however, I was a bit rushed in trying to get them done. And

More Windows and Mac Stuff

One of the sites that I have found to be invaluable lately is Paul Thurrot’s SuperSite for Windows (I noticed the web browser title bar says “SuperSit”, hehe). Two recent articles were good reads, as Paul is brutally honest about his findings. He is not a Windows biggot or a Mac hater, just honest. The

Reflecting

IMG_1173 Originally uploaded by rushaw. Jerry had a really nice post that brought up some genuine emotion from both Gardner and me. It’s still Monday morning at the ELI 2006 Annual Meeting, but there already has been a lot of reflecting. I also have my work cut out for me to summarize what’s so great

41 Year Old Virgin

I’m trying to be casual because everybody else looks very casual and relaxed. Maybe it’s a game we all play. Flights come and go all the time. I’m not nervous about the flight, I’m just nervous that I will do something that makes it quite obvious that this is my first time in an airplane.

Will Is Going to Make a Ton of Money

I got this notice on Friday about a new book from Will Richardson. C’mon $61.95? Well it turns out that the actual price is $27.95 if you dig deeper. I hope no one got scared off, because it sounds like a great book. Will’s Weblogg-ed site is one of my favorite educational blogs, and he
