Azure Avenger

This past weekend in Star Trek Online the Azure Nebula  queue was the featured queue for group missions, which meant this was a good opportunity to earn an accolade that I haven't been able to get since I started going on the accolade hunt (mostly because people weren't queuing up for the Azure Nebula mission)In this mission... (from the STO wiki):After the briefing, the team will have twelve

Adieu AIM!

So...I guess now that Verizon owns AOL it's strategically killing off old products.  The most recent product on the chopping block is AIM (AOL Instant Message. On December 15th of this year AIM will be no more, and it will be joining Yahoo! Messenger (classic) up in Valhalla.  I didn't use this in high school, but many of my classmates did. After hanging out after school, many logged onto

Street Fighter V arcade trailer

It's hard to believe that it's been 30 years since Street Fighter was originally released... I am also surprised that there is no Xbox One release for the game.  I guess I will be playing it on Steam...(at some point in the way way way future)

Sev TNG: choose a door, any door.

Back in the day this seemed funny (just for the sake of being funny).  I think these days (especially with what's been happening in the world) it seems like a good episode of trek in the making... (you know, the whole exploring social and political issues of the day through the lens of scifi)(original archive here)

Review: Star Trek: Gold Key Archives Volume 1

Star Trek: Gold Key Archives Volume 1 by Arnold DrakeMy rating: 2 of 5 stars As a piece of cultural history this was OK. Some interesting stories, but they read more like the off-brand Kirk, Spock, and McCoy... Perhaps think of them as Kork, Speck, and McKay of the series called "Star Blazing" and you're good to enjoy without feeling weird about "space esperanto" and going to a different

Review: E-Research Collaboration

E-Research Collaboration by Murugan AnandarajanMy rating: 4 of 5 stars An interesting collection of works on collaboration (if my highlights are anything to go by). There were a few elements in this book that deserve attention in my literature review.  The case studies that are presented don't help a ton in my contexts as they tend to be not related to the topic of collaboration as

Axanar interview

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

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
