Digital Pedagogy redux

After hundreds of hours of research (online and otherwise), travelling to the University of Victoria, British Columbia, for the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (twice!), taking the “Digital Pedagogy and Praxis” class, and talking with several of the presenters mentioned in this story at #DHSI last month: today I discovered the Digital Pedagogy Network. I must not be asking the right questions! View the story “Digital Pedagogy Symposium” on Storify

Around the World 2017: Digital Media in a Post-Truth Era

I recently spent an entire day at this wonderfully international digital conference. I can highly recommend the Kule Institute for Advanced Study at the University of Alberta, Canada, annual “Around the World” conference. I found this years’ theme irresistible: Digital Media in a Post-Truth Era. “The unfolding of recent political events in the US has sparked much debate around ‘fake news,’ disinformation and trustworthiness on the web. This year’s conference used these developments as a starting point for a broader discussion […]

On Macron, Macarons, Macaroons, Macaroni, Maccaroni, the Macaronis, and Drumpf

French Economy minister Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte Trogneux arrive at the Elysee Palace in Paris, France, to attend a dinner in honour of Spain’s King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia 2 June 2016 (Philippe Wojazer/Reuters) After Emmanuel Macron won the French election by a margin of two to one over Marine Le Pen, I wondered what the French word macron could mean. I found that a macron is the diacritical mark that indicates a long (heavy) letter, usually a […]

Day 100 of the Trump Presidency

It took 100 days but President Trump finally spoke a truth. I don’t think he intended to be honest, so I made a 1 minute video to commemorate this milestone and the fact that in his first 100 days he accomplished exactly none of the things he promised during his campaign. Today’s speech will undoubtedly produce the same results.   http://markcorbettwilson.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/First-100-days.mp4

Overwhelmed

Feeling overwhelmed by using more than a dozen different software programs before finishing my morning coffee, I looked for a list of software to make a word cloud. The best I could find is a list of lists of software on Wikipedia. I looked at ones that interest me and ended up at a list of Open Source software for Windows. Not all Open Source software, not Free Open Source software (FOSS), just Open Source  software for Windows. I copied the […]
