Review: Engaging in Narrative Inquiry

Engaging in Narrative Inquiry by D. Jean ClandininMy rating: 5 of 5 stars Informative. Worthwhile reading if you're interested in Narrative Inquiry as a research method. I read this book after the book I posted about yesterday.  This book seemed to go a little more in-depth as to the how-to of a narrative inquiry but it's still not a recipe.  Time to read another book.  One

Review: Narrative Inquiry: Experience and Story in Qualitative Research

Narrative Inquiry: Experience and Story in Qualitative Research by D. Jean ClandininMy rating: 5 of 5 stars This isn't a book where you are told how to do Narrative Inquiry in a step-by-step manner. That said, it's probably the best book to introduce you to Narrative Inquiry because it's about what Narrative Inquirers do, and the forms that takes. It really helped frame the research approach

More Tardigrade news...

email update from STO - for those like me who got Lt. Tardigrade as their nouveau tomagochi ;-)Thanks to some generous donations from the local shipyard, the Lieutenant now had his very own starship bridge, of sorts, in his enclosure. We managed to secure three decommissioned consoles, and his very own Captain's chair. It's a little beat up, to be sure, but he doesn't seem to mind, and he's been running

Star Trek Online: Age of Discovery

  Last fall, in what seems like the heels of  the "Victory is Life" expansion some new content dropped on STO, titled "Age of Discovery" which seems to be content for the game that runs concurrent with the show that started yesterday evening, and perhaps with the on-going IDW series on Star Trek Discovery.  With this new content you start off as a cadet in the Discovery era of Star Trek

GoodReads 2018 year-in-review

I had forgotten to have a look at the nice infographic that Goodreads prepares for its users at the end of each year. I read more than I intended to, even though quite a few are comics ;-)

Review: Persepolis Rising

Persepolis Rising by James S.A. CoreyMy rating: 5 of 5 stars Woah! Will this universe ever know peace? Jump forward 20 years, Duarte is back, he is now emperor or some sh*t like that (I know, high council Duarte, just go with me). He is part protomolecule. He sends his protomolecule technology fleet to colonize the remaining human colonies. Just as Holden "retires" and sells the ship to

Adieu Tumblr

Another one bites the dust - at least for me. In 2018, after 10 years of using Tumblr I decided to stop using this service (it's questionable how long it will be around anyway).  Initially, early in September I lost access to my account.  I had enabled 2FA (2 factor authentication) but none of the the security tokens on my 2FA application would work.  Argh...   After

Xbox year in review

The year-in-review notifications that various social media sites provide can be quite fun.  This year's year-in-review for xbox is a custom made snowball (too bad you can't order one!) based on the various statistics from your gaming preferences.It seems like 2018 for me was the year of Assassin's Creed, with over 200 hours logged into  Origins Syndicate, and Unity.  While this might
