But Is That Ethical? Ask This App. – Wired Campus – Blogs – The Chronicle of Higher Education “The Ethical Decision Making app is an attempt to bring applied ethics into 21st century.

The EPA currently values a human life at $8.7 million, although they go to great lengths to point out that technically this is not actually the value any specific person places on another person’s individual life. In any case, by their measure, the total value we place on all the world’s humans is about $60 trillion—less than the total value we place on all the world’s oil.” Another beautiful What if? by @xkcdComic http://t.co/bx6wrCaJw3 #thoughtvectors — Tom Woodward (@twoodwar) May 16, 2014 tags: IFTTT Twitter weekly money worth humans thoughtvectors xkcd whatif scale Barnstorming – Futility Closet “Perhaps, like a poem, it provides its own reason.” tags: flying rooster weekly plane patent The Latest Hitman Game Was Inspired By The Rich Kids Of Instagram tags: hitman instagram videogame socialmedia weekly Posted from Diigo.

Vicki from Cool Cat Teacher mentioned something I hadn’t thought about before regarding del.icio.us networks. Wouldn’t it be useful to be able to create a rss feed based on your network and keyword(s). I know I can get a direct feed from my network but I’d like to be able to sort things based on keyword. I could then do some really interesting collaborative work in web sites without having to manually add anything (I know I’m that lazy). Maybe this is possible now and I’m missing something simple. I’ve looked in the Network view and didn’t see it. Manually adding keywords above like http://del.icio.us/network/bionicteacher/history doesn’t work (although the page refreshes to taunt you into thinking it does work so you get all excited late at night). I tried the link roll option and isn’t built in. I then tried to force it by manually editing the script and failed there as well (that could be through sheer ignorance though). Finally, the other place it would fit perfectly is in subscriptions. Since you can subscribe to tags by user here it seemed like I might be able to put in history as the tag and network/bionicteacher as the user and get only history tagged items from my network. This didn’t work either. So I’m stumped. Can anyone enlighten me? I’ve […]
@twoodwar is this the T Woodward I I knew in Cola, SC?!?! I'm still recovering from those suicide kicks! #greengate pic.twitter.com/4HTaNHEi2N — auz1111 (@auz1111) April 7, 2017 That is me- back row, partially obscured (and not just by the camo). Pretty wild that John found me somehow and that we’re both involved in WordPress and web design stuff. It led me to look up another guy from that photo and a few seconds later . . . presto. He was even using that same picture as his avatar (because, as it turns out, they had a bet on who could find me on the Internets). Not world shaking but a fun connection to the past (30-ish years ago!) and one that inspired a bit of digital wandering. I’m relatively sure this is my house back in 5th/6th grade but I’m not entirely sure. I mainly identified it by the creek visible in the map view. I probably spent more time there than in the house. That’d definitely the pond where I used to fish and catch baby turtles (something of a family tradition now). I went to E.L. Wright M.S. before we moved to the hell that was 7th grade in Huntsville, Alabama’s creatively-named Huntsville Middle School.
