WP Campus 18 First Notes via John Stewart (external)

This week, I’m attending WP Campus 18 in St. Louis, MO. For the conference, presenters are encouraged to create some sort of online artifact (usually a WP site) to share their slides and resources. Here’s mine. I’m really impressed by the conference in terms of some of the organizational things they are doing. Online artifacts […]

Why Domain via John Stewart (external)

As part of his work in introducing Domain of One’s Own at Ontario Extend, Alan Levine posted the questions that I answer below. I haven’t been blogging enough recently, so I thought this was a good chance to document some of my own DoOO thoughts and kickstart my writing. What is your domain name and what […]

2018 OU Creaties

On Friday, the Office of Digital Learning hosted the 2018 OU Creaties at the University Club in OU’s Memorial Union. This annual event honors the students, staff, and…

Multiserver DoOO Data Management via John Stewart (external)

This post can only possibly appeal to about 12 people and only when they’re really in the mood for weedsy code stuff. However, that’s about my normal readership, so here we go… For the OU Create project, we now have 5 servers that are managed by Reclaim Hosting. We’ve got more than 4000 users, and, […]

Visualizing Connections in the Sea of Information via John Stewart (external)

Between podcasts, newspapers, blogs, journals, books, and video, I have access to far more media than I could possibly consume. Rather than having to search for information, I swim through a vast sea of it. The labor comes in deciding what I want to think about right now and then charting a path through good information. These […]

Croom: The Font

Yes, that’s right. I’ve now developed a typeface based on my handwriting. If you are looking for a very hastily written, chicken scratch type of font, may I suggest this option. I got this idea right before #Domains17. The great Bryan Mathers developed the poster and I had asked him for a high resolution copy… Continue reading

Omeka of One’s Own via John Stewart (external)

One of the recurring concerns/complaints surrounding the Domain of One’s Own project is the inescapability of WordPress. Most students and faculty on OU Create and other Domains projects use WordPress sites, either for personal portfolios or class blogs. As a counterpoint, I wanted to feature a few of the Omeka sites that that have been built on OU […]

A Web Diet: Converting WordPress Sites Over to Static Sites

Over the years, my main course web project, PR Pubs, has became one sprawling beast. For the most part, people know prpubs.us as the homepage for the course, but I haven’t actively used that space for a few semesters. Thus, in May I made it one of my summer goals to rework prpubs.us in such… Continue reading

Small is Beautiful. Metaphors and Other Musings from #Domains17

I’m recovering from the week that was #Domains17 and want to thank everyone from near and far that took the time to come to Oklahoma City and be a part of this conversation, particularly Jim, Tim, and Lauren from Reclaim Hosting who suggested OKC. It’s likely that part of being an Oklahoman is wanting to… Continue reading
