Conversations not Presentations at OLC

I’m not a huge fan of monologues. The traditional conference paper, someone reading to me for 20 minutes and often failing to leave time for Q&A, has always seemed wasteful. Either publishing work-in-progress papers or recording and sharing videos would disseminate the work at a fraction of the economic and ecological cost of a conference.  […]

Visiting Jim Henson in Queens

Over time, I’ve become fairly buttoned up on Facebook, meaning I don’t post too often. In fact, I’m probably more likely to blog than I am to post to Facebook. I find link sharing more conducive to Twitter and find Instagram a more favorable experience for photos. So, for something to be a Facebook post, […]

I’ve only recently stumbled upon La Blogothèque, a French website / YouTube channel that produces fantastic films of music being performed. They have beautiful concerts like this one of The National, ‘Live in Cork’. The National, ‘Live in Cork,’ produced by La Blogothèque Even better are their “Take Away Shows” where they get a band […]

Visiting the Old and New of the New York Ad World

I just returned from a weekend in New York where, alongside my colleague Debbie Yount, I had the opportunity to lead a group of 15 students to see eight different agencies and media companies in NYC. All credit goes to Debbie for organizing and our greater alumni network who helped coordinate the visits. I wanted […]

We Adopted a Dog

Editor’s Note: I wrote this post back in July, but am just now publishing it. I believe I forgot to post I because I wanted to include a photo and I realized I didn’t have a “blog worthy” photo of Nala. I still don’t think I have one, but whatever I have is good enough […]

A Poem for Evie

The night of the election, I wrote a letter of apology to my daughter. Last night, after spending most of the day watching and thinking about Dr. Blasey Ford’s testimony, I wrote my first poem. Sadly the letter and the poem share a common theme. The trust that Evie placesin the very sound of my voicewhen […]

WP Campus 18: Playing on the Web

Playing and learning involve experimentation, getting dirty, and breaking stuff. Both on the web and IRL, I want people to test a toy or a technology or a theory in order to see what it can provide and where it will break. In one of the opening lightning talks at WordPress Campus 18, Donna Talarico challenged us […]

OLC Innovate CFP Extended

The call for papers for OLC Innovate 19 has been extended to 11:59pm on September 26th. I’m co-program chair with Kate Sonka this year, so I particularly want to appeal to all the people I know to share their wonderful work with us in Denver in April. In the video below, I chatted with Kate […]

An Interview with Jean Twenge about the iGen

To kick off OLC Accelerate Live, I interviewed Prof. Jean Twenge a couple of weeks ago about her recent book iGen: Why Today’s Super-Connected Kids Are Growing Up Less Rebellious, More Tolerant, Less Happy–and Completely Unprepared for Adulthood–and What That Means for the Rest of Us. Prof. Twenge teaches in the Department of Psychology at San […]

Getting Started with WordPress in OU Create

It’s back to school season, and for me that means helping students and faculty set up websites. The Office of Digital Learning at the University of Oklahoma provides a service called OU Create which provides a web domain and server space for students, staff, and faculty to build websites. Working in partnership with Reclaim Hosting, […]
