Hearing that the #WhiteHouse is still behind in Presidential appointments, unsavory types continue to flood Washington, DC bus terminals.

I think +Laura Gibbs shared this a few days ago, but the wisdom about #edtech decision-making (so often done with little to no faculty input) bears repeating.*

*And the Two Jonathans are not the bears doing the repeating. ;-)

#Google #Spaces saying "Good-bye..."
Last year, we announced Spaces to experiment with a new approach to small group sharing. Since then, we’ve learned a lot about how people come together to share ideas and content around any topic.

As we focus our efforts, we've decided to take what we learned with Spaces, and apply it to our existing products. Unfortunately, this means that we’ll be saying goodbye to supporting Spaces. We want to thank all of the Spaces users who tried out the app and shared their feedback. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

In the coming weeks, Spaces will move into read-only mode, and on April 17, 2017 we’ll close down the app. You can learn more here: https://goo.gl/IWZuvf

Thanks again for trying Spaces. We look forward to continuing to create great ways for you to share the content that matters most to you.

A local (#Omaha) news feature on my cousin from my dad's side of the family. She doesn't brag much so we have to do it for her.

I've been noting for a while that "scaling up deportations" requires giving people in the field more unreviewable authority to declare someone un-American -- without that troublesome burden of "courts."

And indeed, here's a dive into how this is being implemented, with officers deep in the bowels of DHS given authority to order "expedited removals" of a much wider class of people. With the anticipated change in the rules for asylum screenings, and the fact that once you have been removed, it's far more difficult to retroactively challenge the order, this turns into an effective mechanism for threatening anyone who "looks foreign" with summary deportation.

NB that the accompanying plan to deport everyone to Mexico, regardless of their country of origin, is another logistical optimization: if you had to figure out someone's country of origin, you'd start needing process, and might have to call into question whether they should be deported at all.
