Our goal is your bowl… love it.
So now that Hulu is out for the iPad, is it “ready for primetime”? The screenshot has Alf on it. Enough said.
Awesome time at ISTE 2010.
for a couple of days, i’ve been locked in a battle… an absolute war, even… with a woman named debra. we’ve gone back and forth, trying to outdo each other in the quest to become mayor of a little square outside the local train station. i admit that i kind of feel some sort of birthright to the space, as i was the one that added it to foursquare, but i guess it’s all a part of the participatory self-publishing culture.
i’m mayor again today, if anyone’s interested.
but i’m fascinated about why i feel compelled to check-in at random places, sacrificing my privacy for some online badges that don’t mean anything. in fact, in the biggest clue that i’m not using foursquare as it was intended, i got the bender badge for checking into this patch of pavement for four nights in a row. something isn’t right.
i’ve been trying to come up with something for our new student orientation in august, maybe using foursquare to check-in and become mayor of different parts of the school and perhaps giving prizes to the mayors. but i can’t help but feel like i’m really reaching here, too addicted to something that really doesn’t have an authentic place in a school.
still working it out — both my issues and what i might do this august — but if you’ve got any thoughts, feel free to drop me a comment.
i feel like i'm stuck in a little bit of a mental rut at the moment, as i'm more than eager for the school year to come to a close. it's been an exhausting year, and hopefully i'll get to rest and recharge for the upcoming school year. i found the end of this school year exhausting, as i was involved in looking at such thrilling documents as a homework policy, snippets of an accreditation visit report, a continuing scope and sequence review, and the ever popular curriculum map.
my favorite online retailer of spectacales sent me my new pairs of glasses… i went with two because, uh, i’m very indecisive. so i’m asking for help again, but this time to find out which one people like better. so here you have it — option A and option B.
