Couldn’t resist this one. It was originally from boing boing or neat stuff.
Posted on a newly updated WP 2.5 installation. It’s taking some getting used to but I think I like it. As a side note, when they tell you to deactivate the plugins before upgrading, they really mean it. Gave myself a little scare that way.
These are real song lyrics. And I always thought “Feelin On Your Booty” was as low as lyrics could go. If 2Pac were dead, and not hiding out on an island in the Caribbean, he’d be rolling in his grave. Shorty just text me, say she wanna sex me LOL smiley face, LOL smiley face Shorty sent a twit pic saying come and get this, LOL smiley face, LOL smiley face From LOL Smiley Face (more lyrical genius here) Yeah load it on my macbook air Its a new form of macking don’t be old fashioned update your passion and See I cant wait till I get a little taste of you And I just upgraded to 10-80-i hi def just for you From Digital Girl, the newest travesty.
I’ve spoken to the PTA at Tuckahoe Middle School for the last two years about social media. It’s been pretty interesting both times in that I take a closer look at things that I tend to take for granted. I think both conversations have gone pretty well. I’ll document the conversation below (mixed with a few things I did with our principals a while back) for anyone who might have to do the same. Introduction I start with a slide that mixes the pictures of as many radically different people with Twitter accounts as I can find. I get the audience to try to identify the people. The one I’m using now has the Dali Lama, Rupert Murdoch, Sarah Palin and a few others. My goal was to have a few easily identifiable people and a few that took a tiny bit more effort.Don’t make people work too hard at this point or everything will stall and you will make enemies. I wanted a wide diversity in political views, ages, etc. After we’ve ID’d the people, I ask “What do these people have in common?”I believe you already know the answer. I mention that you’ve probably heard references to Twitter after shows like Good Morning America, etc. Hopefully this gets people into the mindset that Twitter (and social media in […]
I’m doing a presentation tomorrow with Jim Groom on how to create mashups without knowing anything about programming. The fun thing is it’s presented using a mashup of communist propaganda posters and that sort of rhetoric. Good clean American fun! It may, or may not, be presented entirely in a fake Russian accent. It will entirely depend on my mood (and Jim‘s). You can also check out the full site here if you’re interested. My example takes a table of information from Wikipedia on Industrial Warfare and steps you through the ways you can change it using SIMILE’s Exhibit. If you bother to look at the actual Exhibit pages you’ll see they link back to the Google spreadsheets to show you what data had to be added to create the changes on the pages. So, you’ll start with this- Step 1 Making this data interactive– so I cut and paste the table into Excel and clean up the data a little bit. I make the html portion of Exhibit. Then I get what’s below- an interesting level of interactivity has been added. You can select/omit/sort the data now. So seeing relationships is a lot easier. Step 2 Adding the visual component– now I felt that we needed something more visual so I added some image URLs and URLs to the […]
