I want to digitise and archive my old albeit huge analogue collection of images. By far the cheapest way seems to be to do it myself. I have on loan an older 5.1MP Kaiser Bass slide & negative scanner. I am wondering if I would be better to invest my time and money in a newer 9MP upgraded model as there will be a huge time investment to undertake this migration or would teh older model be sufficient.

Hrm. I used and actual photo scanner. It fed the pictures though. It made things slightly more efficient. Plus with a camera or a traditional scanner you have sizing and other issues to worry about.

Fascinating +EdSurge article. I think it gives us some clues where Edtech conferences could be heading with greater blending and user participation. We are taking this on board with our next +DLT Victoria conference in Melbourne Victoria. A good read and share.

#SocialMedia  has ushered in a new avenue of communication. For it be effective and succeed, everyone must 'buy in' to using it wisely.

I am using Chromebleed add-on to check sites with the Heartbleed vulnerability. Cute :-) #acceln   #vicpln   #edtech  
 
There's a small Chrome extension called chromebleed that displays you a notification when you're on a website which is vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug.
Kudos to Googlers Neel, Adam and Bodo for fixing the bug.

It was fun +Simon Keily .. especially when the dino burst into the room and started chomping at my leg. Spiders were the creepy bonus feature as they walked about my arms. Almost felt real.

Great team of volunteers and staff who take sustainability seriously. They recycle computer scrap and rebuild from this scrap or surplus parts to reuse. It is good to see the effort they put into rebuilding old systems to give to needy local community groups. A great and worthy community initiative.
