Review: Collaboration Uncovered: The Forgotten, the Assumed, and the Unexamined in Collaborative Education

Collaboration Uncovered: The Forgotten, the Assumed, and the Unexamined in Collaborative Education by Merle RichardsMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Quite an interesting collection of perspectives (and stories) about person-to-person collaboration in higher education. I think that you are looking for a book that deals with collaboration at the lower levels (i.e. not institution-to-institution) this

Max Payne - 16 years later

Hard to believe that 16 years have passed since this game kicked off! Yes, even though I just finished this series of games (recently...within the last 6 months?) it's interesting to hear a retrospective :-)

Sev TNG: Where are the toilets on this ship

The joke works only as a double-entendre (probably doesn't translate well either). I think my two favorite alteranates are: " Does it matter? These uniforms have no zippers." and " You heard me back at Starbase 5: "Does anybody need to go? I'm not stopping once we go to warp..."" (original archive here)

Insanity over nintendo...

I came across last week's gamercat and it made me laugh, and ponder, a bit.  Why are nintendo titles generally not available at launch, under-stocked, and over-priced? Even old games for the DS are not cheap (sometimes they are cheaper on ebay used, but not always).  What gives?

Review: Collaboration and Networking in Education

Collaboration and Networking in Education by Daniel MuijsMy rating: 3 of 5 stars Interesting book on collaboration in education. I was expecting it to focus more on the specific of collaboration, and less on the inter-organizational aspects. As such I found it to be a bit high level for my purposes. Still, this was an interesting book to read, even if I did end up skimming through sections

Audioboom: I guess the free ride is over :o

I was logging into audiobook today to setup some short welcome notes for a workshop I am facilitating this coming week when I saw the attached notice... I guess the free ride for Audioboom (formerly audioboo) is over.  Luckily my workshop ends before the deadline for me to start paying, so here's to one last free ride...

Sev TNG: space cats!

It's funny, but I had never thought of Spot's gender on the series. The alternate punchline that I would prefer is: THAT cat was a stunt double. (original archive here)

Halo Wars | Done!

This past weekend (and after about 20 hours of playtime) I finished Halo Wars on the xbox 360. I've been kind of avoiding Halo Wars because it's an RTS game (real time strategy) and I haven't really gotten very much into an RTS since Warcraft II: The tides of darkness (which I played back in 1996 on my Performa 635).  In this game, unlike most other Halo games, your protagonist is just a regular

Review: The Cathedral & the Bazaar: Musings on Linux and Open Source by an Accidental Revolutionary

The Cathedral & the Bazaar: Musings on Linux and Open Source by an Accidental Revolutionary by Eric S. RaymondMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Quite an interesting collection of essays on open source programming and culture. GoodReads tells me I've read this before, but I wonder if I just read the essay with the same name rather than the whole book (I didn't remember it, or perhaps I see it
