This is one of my favorite episodes of the Simpsons. It is a great take on the control fetish of some school (and department) Administrators

Thanks to @wazmac for the link.
Not really that big a call.
" PARENTS who buy into their children's online disputes can continue the tirade long after their children have made up."
This was the case well before computers were around, impact before cars, bronze etc.

Cant say I am 'all in' with the views of the post, but the comments are worth a read, some interesting ideas (greenteacher) and views on innovation in education

Another great collation of the Sydney #gafesummit  social media sharing.  Particularly fond of the #smed  poster

I don't have the attention span to watch anything over 2 minutes usually, but this is fun, engaging and very Disney.
Paperman Full Length Short

This is stunning. Disney is so on point. If this doesn't give any of you Lucas naysayers something to think about, I dont know what will.

There is no failure, only feedback.

The idea of social media posts being easier to remember than non fiction books is easy to believe. As one of the commentators on the original article states; 
"The ancient greeks recited Homer's epic by memory and reading was once condemned for degrading oral memory (which it did)."

If you take the time to read the original article you may find that the research is in its' infancy and that the original group of subjects were not diverse or representative of general society.

What +Lisa Nielsen's article did provoke (for me) was the reflection that I have become more and more attuned to reading short pieces of writing.  I actually find myself more interested in reading short pieces, like in #googleplus and prefer to flow from post to post, following links that lead to Blogs (and occasionally articles).  I guess I have to think about this a little more, what are your thoughts?
