Cornbread is a southern staple made from cornmeal. Corn (maize) was an integral part of the diet of Native Americans thousands of years before Europeans learned of the plant. My daddy would crumble cornbread into a glass of buttermilk and eat it with a…

A savory quick bread, southern cornbread has a buttermilk base and no sugar. It is delicious as a side or as an ingredient in southern cornbread dressing. Recipe modified to be gluten-free.

How to watch a photo slideshow on a Sony Bravia TV

My father-in-law has a giganormous Sony Bravia television. We wanted to use it to share photos from our Alaska trip. What a convoluted process that turned out to be!

For this milestone birthday, Mike and I set out on a motorcycle trip to Alaska. Very little of that initial plan came to pass, starting with the cancellation of our ferry from Bellingham, WA to Haines, AK three days before we were to depart! The story is…

NO, it’s NOT the “law of the land.” That 1857 ruling was nullified about 150 years ago. That …

Conversation as an antidote to argument. And yes, it needs an antidote. Not unlike competition v cooperation. Plus, we need a reprieve from either-or, black-and-white thinking.

On 28 November 2015, I had a reading and panel discussion at Médiathèque André Malraux, a library and media centre in Strasbourg, the main city of the Alsace region of France, adjoining Germany, traditionally one of the Christmas capitals of the continent, and currently the site of the European Parliament.

The headline is wrong. It's not that the feds "dropped" charges. 
The Feds FALSELY charged an innocent man because he was Chinese - and didn't even have experts review the "evidence" before making the charges. #shameful  

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/12/us/politics/us-drops-charges-that-professor-shared-technology-with-china.html?_r=0
All charges against the Temple University professor were dropped after it became apparent the Justice Department had misinterpreted a key piece of evidence.

The alarm chimed about 6 am. Mike was not well. Fever, night sweats, headache, zero energy. This is a man who is almost never sick and never complains. So if he says he’s sick, he’s sick. I’d not packed aspirin, but I brought Excedrin Migraine and generic…

Several years/classes distilled into one (longish) essay!
Sometimes baby steps make learning easier. But not always. I remember getting the email with the news that my web design class was transitioning from traditional face-to-face to hybrid: half the students in the classroom, half online (synchronous).

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!).

The Kinds Of Stuff I Share Here
  • Technology and ... society, journalism, education, politics
  • News and commentary with a tilt towards the later
  • Seattle-specific events
  • Science and science fiction
What you won't find in my stream:

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.


Once-upon-a-time, was curating an educator -- http://www.group.as/kathy+gills+list+of+educators+and+researchers/ -- and a journalists -- http://www.group.as/kathy+gills+journalists+list/ -- list of Google+ Profiles at group.as




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.
