Sev TNG: Jazz humor...or not

This one didn't really resonate with me these days. Yes, it makes sense for Riker - given his interest in Jazz, but I think the alternate submission of " We could use it as a hood ornament for the Enterprize" was a little better.(original archive here)

Review: Teaching Crowds: Learning and Social Media

Teaching Crowds: Learning and Social Media by John DronMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I've had both a physical and a digital copy of this book for ages, but only really gone through select passages since I've had it. This time around I read through it cover to cover. It's interesting to read about sets, nets, groups, and collectives, and how they are instantiated using various technologies. I

Rip. Mix. Burn!

I was recently reminded of Apple's Rip. Mix. Burn ad campaign.  I remember at the time there were some MP3 players on the market (no iPod yet) which had an amazing 15MB of space on them, and SD cards cost a fortune.  Nice proof of concept, but CDs were way cheaper. If course, by that time, I was already Rip, Mix, Burning.  The software to mix (actually mix, not just re-arrange tracks)

Star Trek Online, Season 14

With Star Trek Las Vegas upon us, STO has announced some really interesting stuff coming down the pike, including captain Georgi LaForge, revamped Galaxy-class ships, and TNG Skants! I think that last one made me smile uncontrollably ;-)  The Lukari and the Kentari seem to be kissing and making up for past aggression, and the Jem Hadar are back! When I saw the trailer (below) yesterday I expected

Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow | Done

Continuing with my exploration of "the classics" (of two console generations ago), I've been playing Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow. The game originally came out for the original xbox, and I've been playing it on backward compatibility.  I didn't really notice any hickups in the single player game.   The title comes from the main bad guy of the series, Sadono, who calls his sleeper cells

Instead of mail, it took me to search results where I discovered a new song...Μα Εγώ by Στέλιος ΡόκκοςVerdict: κλαψουριάρικο χαχα.  Εντάξει, δεν είναι και άσχημο, αλλά πρέπει να είσαι προετοιμασμένος για

Sev TNG: I mean, have you looked at the other guy?

It's hard to believe, but I guess life imitates art. A couple of weeks ago the Democratic Party in the US unveiled their new slogan: I mean, have you seen the other guys?  (link to TheHill.com). I guess someone's got to make the Federation look good with all those badmirals running around :p (original archive here)

Review: Qualitative Research Design: An Interactive Approach: 41

Qualitative Research Design: An Interactive Approach: 41 by Joseph A. MaxwellMy rating: 5 of 5 stars This was quite a short book (in comparison to other methods books I've read) but it was quite good. It's definitely packed with good insight and things to make you think about what you want to consider when it comes to writing your research proposal. At the end of each chapter there are memoing
