First contact day is upon us!

I saw, on the the STO blog, that First Contact day is almost upon us! For the event, STO will be doing the following:

Captains who participate will search the area for useful parts, just like Cochrane scavenged the pieces for the Phoenix. Using these parts in conjunction with a basic hull assembly, captains will make their own model of the Phoenix by combining engines, hull, and stabilizer parts found in various bits and pieces scattered about the re-creation of the historical settlement. Under the shadow of Zefram Cochrane’s statue, try to get the best parts possible, because the engines will make your model go faster, hull will allow it to survive longer, and stabilizers will keep it going at a better angle of launch.

No mention of what the prizes/giveaways may or may not be.  That said, when I saw this image on the STO blog, the first thing that came to mind was this scene from First Contact:

Άλλο ένα τραγουδάκι που κλείνει τα 20 φέτος, και το οποίο μας είχε πορώσει το καλοκαίρι του '98...

This week in facebook found music

No charts this week, but rather facebook found music.

Storm the Sorrow by EPICA
Verdict: Generally this is not the type of music that I seek out (epic metal?), but it's got a good tune if you've need to be psychologically pumped

Review: The Design, Experience and Practice of Networked Learning

The Design, Experience and Practice of Networked Learning The Design, Experience and Practice of Networked Learning by Vivien Hodgson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Continuing my reading into the presentation I want to do this April, and working on my readings for my dissertation proposal, here is this book.  This was quite interesting to read, and it definitely went by faster compared to another Networked Learning book I read recently. The edited volume approach works well for this kind of subject matter because it provides for a diverse view and application of networked learning. Even chapters that weren't of particular interest to my current projects actually gave me something to think about. A good read for someone who is interested in networked learning.
