Is #realstory = #openheartedness = #openness or #nudism as +James Neill​ has connected in the past? Do we bravely hold to this in the face of #closedpractice #dataretention and #uberveillence? Yes we do, but what is your considered position +Alexander Hayes​? This is our nature, it seems.

Very clever
Ascent AeroSystems is raising funds for Sprite: portable and rugged. A totally different drone. on Kickstarter! Sprite is a completely different kind of unmanned aerial vehicle. Portable, rugged, powerful, and easy to use. A tool, not a toy.

Disruptive technologies are all well and good, but being totally out of touch with what people actually want may not be the best innovation strategy.

We have been using wikispaces since 2007 at Sydney TAFE, been a great product in the edu space, I can't remember a time when it was down and they have been very responsive. An interesting and rare example of a Silicon Valley startup in the edu space. Bet it did not sell for as much as WhatsApp, still interesting it was purchased by a professional teachers social networking service

Author Danah Boyd argues that social media isn't ruining kids. Society at large is doing the real damage

ok I am not happy just lost an hours work on a blog post that I had been meticulously saving periodically :>
http://www.squarespace.com/ would have to be the worst blogging platform I have ever used, it has caused us no end of dramas ever since we went on our trip, the interface is unintutive, it's cluncky to use as I just found out you can loose everthing in an instant. It's mobile client sucks, we rang them in the US while we were away and they admitted that you have to use it in a desktop web browser to get full functionality.
If you ever are considering a blogging platform, do not use squarespace wordrpress is 100 time better and is free. We will cancel our subscription and revert back.
