My Week in Review

New tattoos! I absolutely love getting tattooed. I mean, I love having tattoos, but the actual tattoo experience is an incredible endorphin release. I was really out of it on Monday (too much "Reclaim" I guess), but I managed to have a productive week nonetheless. I feel like I'm making some progress on the book finally (I say that now as the summer quickly disappears). There was some of the usual: getting into fights on the Internet, newsletter writing, news round-up writing, a story for EML, and so on. [...]

My Week in Review

Not a lot to report. I'm sitting here typing this up at the 2nd Annual Reclaim Your Domain Hackathon (which, yes, means I'm not really working that hard on hacking at reclaiming my domain. Oh well. I'm blogging. That counts as something, right?) I feel like I didn't really accomplish much this past week (that is an interesting side effect of this weekly review: I can review what a slacker I've been. Woot.) [...]

My Week in Review

A largely uneventful week. When I write it all out, it looks like I didn't get much done. I guess I read a lot. Some Twitter fights, I suppose. I marveled in the amazing MOOC mystery surrounding Coursera's #massiveteaching class (which appears to be a massive ethical failure, if nothing else). Not a great week emotionally for me dad-wise. My credit score sucks, I was reminded this week too. But hey, I killed my Facebook account and am starting to disentangle myself from Google. So progress in reclaiming my life there, I suppose.

My Week in Review

On the road to Atlanta for ISTE (or at least the unconference held the day before the big show). It was awful -- emotionally grueling. Number of conferences since I burst into tears counter has been reset to 0. I wrote a good little story about ed-tech patents. I was mentioned twice in the OLDaily (which always feels like a triumph). I think I'm gonna close my Facebook account. Tune in next week... [...]

My Week in Review

To and from Bolton, UK. (A new place for me.) A keynote. A session presentation. Cider. New friends and old friends. A wee bit of writing, but quite a bit of editing. Lots of reading. Did you hear that?! Lots of reading! I finished Piketty! And feeling pretty lonely as Kin is still on the road too (but without me. Sniff.) I'm home for six whole days before I travel again. Yay!
