Methods section humor
Some Sunday humor... I thought it was apropos given that I've been working on getting my methods section polished off and done by August 30th. I am, sort of, there too! I just need to work on getting my reliability & validity sections done (I've got disjointed fragments I have written already), and my ethics section done (again, disjointed fragments). It's a bit slow-going because I need
Sev TNG: Free cable
I guess it should be free satellite, not free cable. I prefer the alternates of "Sure beats the pajamas that Star Fleet makes YOU wear!" and "After a few Millennia, you tend to run out of fashion ideas. . ." (original archive here)
Review: 42 Rules for Successful Collaboration (2nd Edition): A Practical Approach to Working with People, Processes and Technology
42 Rules for Successful Collaboration (2nd Edition): A Practical Approach to Working with People, Processes and Technology by David ColemanMy rating: 2 of 5 stars I guess I forgot to check off this book as read a few days ago. The book was OK, and it was a fairly fast book to read, not weighed down by disciplinary jargon. That said, some of the rules are quite helpful, whereas others
Είδαμε και έκλειψη
Χτες στην περιοχή μας είχαμε ηλιακή έκλειψη και για ‘μένα ήταν η πρώτη φορά στην ζωή μου που ήμουν σε περιοχή να δω μια έκλειψη. Στην Βοστόνη η έκλειψη ήταν μόνο 68% της επιφάνειας του ηλίου, οπότε δεν ήταν ολική έκλειψη και
Review: Interviewing as Qualitative Research: A Guide for Researchers in Education and the Social Sciences
Interviewing as Qualitative Research: A Guide for Researchers in Education and the Social Sciences by Irving SeidmanMy rating: 5 of 5 stars Quite a good read on conducting interviews as part of educational research. It does seem to focus on phenomenological interviews, where the interview is the one and only approach, but it might be useful for other cases where interviews are one of many
Music Rewind: Mmmbop
😂LOL. Έκανα μια γρήγορη αναζήτηση στο google να δω τι άλλα τραγούδια από το 1997 είχα ξεχάσει και πέτυχα αυτό. Τι γέλιο! Όντως το είχα ξεχάσει επειδή δεν το έχω σε κάποια λίστα στο iTunes αλλά εδώ στον Βοστόνη το έπαιζε το ράδιο συνέχεια
Of paradoxes, and politics
With the "Free Speech" rally happening in Boston today (and various other counterprotests), it seemed that this would be a good post for today - a report from other places already posted on facebook and other social media. Let's see who peaceful things are in Boston today. At least the police in Boston seem to have a better plan that those folks in NC, which I hope will keep folks safe.

Copland με την εμφάνιση "Hi Tech"Από τότε που άρχισα να ασχολούμαι με υπολογιστές στο λύκειο άρχισα να διαβάζω για τα Mac και για τις καινοτομίες τις Apple. Τότε υπήρχαν τρία περιορικά: το MacUser, το MacWorld, και το MacAddict. Αποφάσισα στην πρώτη
Sev TNG: Measly is going to the Academy
I guess this one is for those who didn't like Wesley Crusher. The alternative punchlines were all very mean-spirited toward Wesley, but this one was the one that I liked the best from all of them, and it feels a little more comic-strip-like: Sev Fleet's Insurance Company won't insure the Enterprize while you're on board.

Review: Collaboration in Distance Education: International Case Studies

Collaboration in Distance Education: International Case Studies by Louise MoranMy rating: 3 of 5 stars Even though it's a little dated at this point, it was an interesting view into cross-organizational collaborations in distance education. I started reading this thinking that it was more about person-to-person collaboration, not necessarily institution-to-institution initiatives.
