Last post for the summer

Sunday, July 31st, 2005

It’s almost August. I’m waiting with bated breath for Maria to post a follow up on her attendance at Bloghercon this weekend, wondering if any new perspectives really emerged from the conference. (And I see that Maria has posted her account here!) Otherwise, I’m getting ready to go on a pixel-diet of sorts, since August […]

Some critics of Islam

Friday, July 29th, 2005

Open Democracy has an excellent article by Maruf Khwaja, Terrorism, Islam, reform: thinking the unthinkable. It isn’t anything that Irshad Manji hasn’t said, but it’s nice to see it coming out on Open Democracy. Khwaja writes, Contemporary Islam has produced more suicidal extremists than all other creeds, modern or ancient. In addition to real or […]

And now, a moment of shameless self-promotion

Thursday, July 28th, 2005

File this under shameless self-promotion, but during one of my perusals of e-learning blogs/ sites today, I came across The Chronicle: Wired Campus Blog‘s entry, Librarians Point to Google Scholar from July 26 — snooze…: joke, right? Google scholar has been around for ages already! Naturally, though, I had to take myself on a spin, […]

What do I call this? Feminism on the side?

Thursday, July 28th, 2005

Darren Cannell has an informative blog called Teaching and Developing Online. He’s my source today for a bunch of links related to e-learning, several of which follow: here he links to an interesting abstract for a paper called Blogs @ Anywhere: High fidelity online communication by James Farmer and Anne Bartlett-Bragg. Anne B-B, incidentally, is […]

No, it’s not a new social networking thing, like FOAF. PFOA is a substance created when fluorotelomers break down: Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), is a perfluorinated acid (PFA) that has recently been identified in the liver and blood of polar bears and seals in the Arctic, including some samples from Nunavut. There is concern about the […]

Tea and tech

Monday, July 25th, 2005

Possibly tomorrow I’d like to post a list of some of the e-learning blogs and websites I’ve been reading lately — the reason I keep putting it off is because I keep finding too many interesting reads and pointers on those very same sites… An example: a while back I wrote about finally trying out […]

In praise of a good night’s sleep

Sunday, July 24th, 2005

For all the 24/7s out there running on empty: the July/August issue of Harvard Magazine features an interesting article by Craig Lambert, Deep into sleep, which is all about …sleep. If you’re short-changing yourself on sleep, you might (will?) pay for it in ill-health down the road: When people make the unlikely claim that they […]

My feeds disappeared

Friday, July 22nd, 2005

Shelley has a very funny entry called Feed the feeds, which is all about, well, feeds, for blogs. I know very little about syndication feeds and how they work and why there are different kinds, but I was feeling a bit smug about them nonetheless because I found this cool little application called Sage, which […]

From “We Are Not Afraid” to “but maybe we should be”

Friday, July 22nd, 2005

According to The Globe & Mail, British “police are believed to be under orders to shoot to kill if they believe someone is about to set off a bomb.” According to Sky Television (as reported by Reuters), the man shot dead by London police was not one of the four bombers who tried to attack […]
