Here’s a quick reminder that IndieWebCamp Austin is this weekend. If you’re in the #DoOO, #edtech, or #IndieWeb spaces and can’t attend in person, there should be some interesting conversations and work that can be done to participate remotely (via chat, video, etc.) to help you improve and b…
Stumbled onto this review of Hekla’s album Á and glad I did. I’ve always had a soft spot for Theremin, and Hekla’s compositions and performance are among the best I’ve ever heard. Beautiful album.

@ChrisaLdrich recently posted an article asking folks to define the #IndieWeb. As an educator it means more to me than just having a Domain or a blog.

It is the whole process of life changing experiences some building over time and some in moments of crisis that have lasting effect.
We are now allowing the perezhivaniya of our children’s digital avatars to accumulate over time on spaces they do not own in places that do not make us happy. Below is a post I made to the XMCA listserv exploring this further.
