Given what's happened in IN and what's happening in other states (like my home state of GA), it's a good time to have a discussion about ethics and morality (which exist outside of organized religion).
The history of moral philosophy in the West hinges principally on a handful of questions: Is there a God of some sort? An afterlife? Free will? And, perhaps most pressingly for humanists, what exactly is the nature of our obligations to others?

There is no right or wrong. There are only consequences. Do what you can.

This headline/lede made me think of microwaves ... and how there is no universal interface. Imagine if cars were like that??

Why Isn't There A Standard Share Icon?
#design #ux
And why iOS 7's icon is nicknamed the "uploader" - What do each of these symbols have in common? They are all trying to convey the exact same action - share! Sharing to a social network or via email is a ubiquitous action nowadays but designers have still not been able to reach a consensus on what symbol to use to represent it. Not only does each major platform use a different icon, but they've each witnessed changes over the years.I have spent ...

Yet another reason to think twice about "fat free" processed food. Two widely-used food additives have been linked to gut inflammation, harbinger of IBD, obesity and metabolic syndrome.

If you saw this logo on a package of cheese, would you think it was an endorsement of the product or an ad for a nutrition website? (There's a poll!)
The world's largest group of nutritionists have given their nutrition logo to Kraft Singles. And it's an exclusive for a fake food.

FCC proposes to regulate Internet infrastructure like public utility
http://t.co/iESG7XzEJ8

Why? http://t.co/tyKSl1e9nW

#NetNeutrality
I am proposing the FCC use its Title II authority to implement and enforce open internet protections, banning paid prioritization, and the blocking and throttling of lawful content and services.

Story
Tagline
Digital evangelist, rabble-rouser, educator, writer, motorcyclist | @kegill
Introduction
Short: Teach digital media at U of WA. Write @ TheModerateVoice.com. Manage website for King County Elections. Motorcyclist and MSF instructor.

LongerI have almost 20 years experience in digital media—both development and instruction. I currently manage the website for King County Elections and teach undergraduate, graduate and continuing education courses at the University of Washington. I helped create the web design program at Seattle Central Community College and was an advisor to Lake Washington Technical College as it added a bachelor's program (and subsequently became Lake Washington Institute of Technology). My consulting work includes writing about U.S.politics for about.com, one of the top 10 visited Web content sites on the Internet; currently I write about politics and technology at TheModeratveVoice.com. I have worked with AT&T Wireless, Boeing, Microsoft, SAFECO, and the University of Washington on intranet projects.

AvailabilityI am available for speaking engagements, training sessions/workshops, interviews (radio, TV, print), strategic communication development (specifically related to digital), writing. I can also put together custom motorcycle safety training classes (with enough notice!).

  • News and commentary with a tilt towards the later
  • Seattle-specific events
  • Science and science fiction

How Does This Differ From @kegill?
That's a question I'm still struggling to answer. I do sometimes cross-post -- sometimes my post to Twitter is the link to G+. Usually, tweets are to interesting material in the above topics but where I don't feel the need to write a long prelim or make a comment.

Google+
Along with +Jon Pincus, developed WeGetPlus as a resource for figuring out how to use Google+. It's not a "latest news" site but one with, we hope, clear tips and guidance. We've been on a bit of a hiatus given the broohahah with #nymwars but are resuming work given Google's assurance it will support pseudonyms. But our joy is gone.

Historical Bio
I've been online since the early 1990s, having discovered CompuServe before Marc Andreessen launched Mosaic at the University of Illinois in 1993. I ran one of the first political candidate websites in Washington State in 1995, when Jim Waldo made an unsuccessful bid for governor. I then rode the dot-com boom as a communication consultant who could speak web, until the crash. In 2001, I began my third career, as a full-time academic, first teaching techies about communications and now teaching communicators about technology. In 2011, I began working part-time with King County Elections, managing the website and a redesign effort. Since 2000, I have also taught newbies how to ride motorcycles! 

Educator with passion for new media; maintain credibility in the classroom by working on select new media projects. Contractor/consulting experience with most Puget Sound major firms; college-level teaching since the late 90s, including prior teaching for Dale Carnegie. Technical skills (XHTML, CSS, XML) plus soft skills (project management, leadership, communication). Award winning writer; two stints as a writer for About.com.
