Review: The Butcher of Anderson Station

The Butcher of Anderson Station by James S.A. CoreyMy rating: 5 of 5 stars Quite an interesting background story for Fred. I don't remember if I saw this on the TV show, I guess I need to rewatch. Sets up an interesting juxtaposition between Earth/Mars and the Belters, and provides some history for the Belters. View all my reviews

This week in Eurovision 2017 (Finalists)

Review of The Architecture of Productive Learning Networks

The Architecture of Productive Learning Networks by Lucila CarvalhoMy rating: 3 of 5 starsI'd give it 3.5 stars if GoodReads would allow it. This is an interesting book on case studies (essentially) on how people have implemented Networked Learning in their various environments. Some examples might resonate with you, and others might be too alien. Overall I think it's a good idea book. Some chapters

This week in Mexican charts

The top song for this week seems to be the same as a few weeks ago...so let's bump down to #3Te Regalo by Ulices Chaidez y Sus PlebesVerdict: Definitely an acquired taste (sort of how certain Greek music is an acquired taste if you haven't grown up listening to it :-)  )
