I came across this Trekzone Axanar interview. This is part II, the Alec Peters part, Part I was a bit of a train-wreck. You do get some clips from part I with Alec, but it's clear that Alec shouldn't be doing interviews (or be online really) - the focus should be on finishing these two mini Axanar parts now that the big movie can't be done. By the way, where are the perks? Some perks should
'Αντε, καλό μήνα! Μαζί με τα φύλλα από τα δέντρα θα έχουμε και το Halloween, τα κρύα, και...την συνέχιση των διαβασμάτων... Ήρθε για τα καλά το φθινόπωρο. Καλό κουράγιο :p
Music Rewind: Cranberries
Haven't thought of the cranberries in ages, but a show I was watching on Amazon this past week reminded of this song.

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?

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)
