Slow Viewing


    No, Charlie B, I will not shut up. In fact Charlie, if you don’t like it, turn around. It’s an experiment, only I am not going to use you for some vague research agenda. What I have found out over the last year is that asking people to give a damn is asking a … Continue reading Slow Viewing

5/10/15: VideoEtherpad on Multiple of Five Day in May


I had kinda lost touch with etherpad. I occasionally used a version of it like PrimaryPad or TitanPad when I was collaborating with friends,but I hadn’t paid any attention to what the Etherpad Foundation was doing with the code since Google bought the company and released the code in the wild.  Well…it now has video. … Continue reading 5/10/15: VideoEtherpad on Multiple of Five Day in May

SpringHaikuTooMuch


Haiku here inspired by Susan Watson’s poem “Quicksand, Ellipsis”.  The story behind this is simple.  When it gets emerald and alive and warm and foggy with spring life squeezing into every open door and window and orifice of perception…well, that is surfeit of, too much of, much too much of necessary Spring. The poem also arises out … Continue reading SpringHaikuTooMuch

PowerPoint Karaoke, Improv Presentation & the Infinite Game–Playing to Learn


I have known about PowerPoint Karaoke for years.  If the idea is new to you think “improv for presenters”.  Terrifying?  To some, any kind of presenting is next to losing a family member or having a tarantula crawl on you… and that is why  I am exploring this as end-of-class fun for everybody.

I was especially struck by Kevin’s photos here (and I am avidly awaiting Kim’s).  In Kevin’s night picture, however, I found myself wondering about what I could not see just as much as by … Continue reading Camera Non-Obscura: Or Why the Brain Sees Better than the Camera
