PayPal has locked up money in my PayPal account for over a month, and they are not giving it back. All because I made the mistake of using the word “Syrian” in a PayPal transaction. On December 15th my daughter came home and said that her class was…

This is post 1 of a 2 part #opened15 brain dump about open textbooks. I’m post-conference OpenEd15 metaphorically hungover, so forgive me if this goes astray or meanders. Textbooks. Ugh. Who needs them. The one hazard of organizing a conference is that…

Any project that builds networks where faculty share ideas and connects sounds great!

Yesterday BCcampus published a research report on how faculty at BC post-secondary institutions use open educational resources. I’m not going to do any analysis or synthesis of the report here. You can read the report. Really, this is more a public thank…

As I wrote about a few weeks ago, my role at BCcampus has undergone a bit of a focus shift back to supporting & researching educational technologies in BC with an emphasis on open source technologies. And there are some exciting things happening in BC…

If there is one way to kill technology generativity, lock the technology up to such an extent that you can’t even repair it, let alone hack at it to do something new and innovative. I’ve written about generativity before (in the context of open…

An EdTech trying to balance the Ed with the Tech
Introduction
Wrangler of learning technologies by day, Dad, cyclist, soccer fan and, lately, home roaster of coffee by night. Before working in EdTech, I had a bit of a career as a radio broadcaster, working at a few radio stations in  Alberta and BC, many which no longer exist. I sincerely regret any part I might have had in their disappearance from the airwaves.In a previous life I had long hair and was a hippie manager of Global Roots Radio Village 900.

Rented roof racks for 2 years from them & had great service & fair price. Finally decided to buy a set of roof racks & carrier from them. After I got home with my "new" racks and carrier, I noticed that the carrier had scratches and scuffs and one of the hinges was broken. It was obviously not new. So I returned it. The second carrier I got was new, but it made me wary. Things went further south when, 9 months later, I had a problem with the roof racks. There was still time left on the 1 year warranty, so I went back to All Seasons to see about getting a new set of racks to replace the defective pair I had. Had a hard time convincing them I had a problem. They played it down, said it was a minor thing (the rubber feet were becoming detached from the actual rack) and the racks would work without the feet being secured in place. Finally left with them assuring me they would call the manufacturer and get me a new set of racks. Weeks later and after repeated phone calls (and after the warranty had conveniently expired on the racks), I was told that my issue was minor (perhaps, but it was a manufacturers defect nonetheless) and was told "that's what you get for buying the cheaper product." In the end, they never did honour the warranty and I am left with a sub-par set of roof racks and a bitter taste in my mouth about a company that I used to be very happy with.
