Late March and the snow still holds
It's the second half of March, a couple of days from the spring solstice, and the land is still cold under snowpack. For example, here's the spot for planting beans : That's several feet thick.  To be fair, it's lower than it was last month, after a week's ...

Attention academics and technologists in the American northeast:
On March 9 I'm going to lead a symposium exploring the new Horizon Report about emerging technologies for education.
It should be fun.

A revolution in home electricity?
Storing home-generated electricity has been a cobbled-together hack for decades.  It involves stringing together a group of golf cart batteries, usually, along with maintaining the cantankerous things.  We haven't done this yet, because we can't generate el...

They are chips off the old block ... you must drag them over to a London TAZ now that they are 'of age' ... mine are 20 and 24 and they are still around which is nice.

A funeral for robot dogs: 
#Japan #weliveinsciencefiction
The earliest examples of Sony's Aibo robotic dog are now around 15 years old, and many are coming to the end of their short lives. Engineers specializing in keeping the Aibo's going have been pictured at a funeral in Japan, honoring those which can't be saved.

Restaurants in airports: should I keep this wiki resource going?
This page aggregates knowledge about airport restaurants, with an eye towards the better ones. Order is alphabetical by city. Don't worry about formatting. I (Bryan) will clean things up as we go. Content is what matters here. If you can, please comment on the price and value (thanks, Wolf).

In the snow days
Now the snows are deep.  Accumulations come and we don't measure them, since their additions are minor in comparison to the drifts. So we return to hauling in wood over snow.  Well, through trenches we've worn in the snow over the past few months,  Here's a...

Story
Tagline
Researcher, futurist, speaker, writer, consultant, educator, homesteader. Author of THE NEW DIGITAL STORYTELLING.
Introduction
Now: I research emerging technologies for teaching and learning.  Social media, mobile devices, gaming, digital storytelling - I write, speak, teach, blog, tweet, get interviewed, and consult about these, then write some more.

Home: I live in Vermont, up in the mountains, half off the grid, with my splendid family: Ceredwyn (wife), Gwynneth (daughter), Owain (son), and a bunch of animals.

Then: born in NYC.  Childhood and first schooling on Long Island.  Later schooling in Michigan.  English professor in Louisiana.

Always: geek.  Love books.  Lift weights.
