This is the video I made in the 2015 faculty workshop on digital storytelling at Kenyon College.

Spam of the day: "Have you ever wondered what would happen if you got bitten by a T-Rex?" Coursera, I do not need a MOOC to answer this.

A vote for the schools is a vote for the city. May 7th.

Celebrating St. Patrick's Day with pancakes and bacon and a donation to the Mid-Ohio Food Bank. Thousands are still sailing.

Who's with me?
International Tabletop Day is March 30

We at +Geek & Sundry have wanted to do International #Tabletop  Day since we premiered a year ago, and we’ve been working on making it happen for almost as long.

At, you can find and join events in your town, or create your own! You can play wherever you want, but if you go to your friendly local gameshop, you may just get one of the Tabletop Day exclusive bonuses for games like Gloom, Dixit, 7 Wonders, Castle Panic, Smash Up, and more. It’s so so so awesome, you guys, and I can’t wait for you to see the amazing things our friends in the games industry have created for you.

The very best thing about Tabletop, for me, isn’t that I get to play games for my job or that I get to hang out with awesome people while I do it. I know that seems like it would be the most awesome thing about Tabletop, but it isn’t. The most awesome thing about Tabletop is the community of people who have rediscovered their love of gaming, or started a game night, or have somehow been inspired by our show to play more games. International Tabletop Day is all about you, and it is designed to celebrate the community that inspires me to work as hard as I can to make the best show I can.

I hope you’ll join us on #Tabletopday , and play more games!

Thanks to +Ted Morrison  for the inspiration. :-)

Facebook Graph Search, first reaction: "Hey, I wonder if this idea works better over on my Google Plus account."

I'm looking for advice on software for generating epub files. I'm looking at Sigil and Pandoc at the moment, but open to suggestion. (The scenario at hand is that I'm knitting together 6 reports from working groups into a single document for a faculty retreat, so this is more of an editing job than a composition job, if that matters.)

As long as I'm giving out wings, kudos to Jack Daniels for a darn nice (if apparently ineffective) cease-and-desist order. Just because you have to protect your trademark if you want to keep your trademark, doesn't mean you have to be a jerk about it.

This letter should be required reading in every library school (and probably every school touching on any kind of management). This is how we do it.
