Cobra Kai Returns - wait...what?
Now THIS is interesting. It's both and underdog story, and a redemption story, and potentially a role reversal story, all steeped in heavy vats of nostalgia. When the "youtube red original" logo came on screen I immediately wrote this off, BUT I was hooked and needed to see the rest of the trailer (you know, the car accident rule, you know it's gruesome, but you can't look away). I am glad I

I came across this comic on Reddit the other day. I both laughed, and wanted to throw a controller at the screen :p While I did want to complete all the option pursuits and co-ops and such, this is one issue that made me want to break the screen :-) Imagine trying to jump (or heck go down and not jump to a 'random' location) and being on a timer. eff this :p
Section 31, yo!
A deleted scene from Star Trek Discovery's season finale his the netwaves the other day where Mirror Gheorghiou is recruited into section 31 (which also answers all the questions on the web about that little black starfleet badge). Effin' awesome is what I have to say! I hope that the fact that this was deleted does not mean that this plotline is killed off... This would be a totally awesome
Colony Season 3 coming soon!
May seems a little late, but it will be here soon enough! So will Colony season 3! The trailer for it came out a few days ago and I am all excited about it! My only worry is that we're treading into "Falling Skies" territory here. Falling skies started strong and it really fizzled out. It's as if the creators didn't know what to do with the series. A protracted war would be
Victory is Life! The next Star Trek Online expansion
"Victory is Life" is a saying of the Jem'Hadar, one of the subjugated races of the Dominion (...or is it "in the Dominion"?) who are, basically, the warriors of that alliance. It is also the name of the next expansion for Star Trek Online which is hitting PCs his coming summer (I sure hope it's not concurrent with the Summer Event on Risa!). I do find it a little odd that the developers chose

Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning: Best Practices and Principles for Instructors by Kara L. OrvisMy rating: 4 of 5 stars An interesting book to read if you're interested in CSCL. It may be a tad bit dated at this point, but some core (or historical) materials are of value. For me specifically - and my EdD research, there were some interesting points to be made about CSCL. I don't
Sev Trek TNG: The picard manoever
I guess this is a dig at the all talk, little action criticism of TNG ;-) I liked the alternate punchline " I'll explain later. Meanwhile, set a course for ROMANCE." but that was a little too esoteric (a callback to a Saturday Night Live skit, Love boat the next generation)(original archive here)
Review: Moocs: Design, Use and Business Models
Moocs: Design, Use and Business Models by Jean-Charles PomerolMy rating: 3 of 5 stars It was not a bad book, but some of the factual errors (or perhaps interpretations of what was reported in the book were not in accordance with my own readings on MOOCing). That said, the book focuses a lot on xMOOCs (not a big surprise, most books seem to be doing this), and the book is focused on higher
Stargate Origins | It was fine
I wanted to indulge my inner critic and say "it stinks!" but it wasn't all that bad. It has been eight years since the last time any Stargate show was on television, so it's been a while. Longer, in fact, than between Enterprise going off the air and the first Kelvin-timeline Star Trek film! So, if there are Stargate fans out there, I hope they enjoyed it, and that there are more Stargateverse stories
Naming in video games
I cam across this over the weekend...it gave me a bit of chuckle ;-)
