This looks like an interesting approach I could take to try and finalize the migration of my courses.

But I want to try and do it on my own. I should be able to mark up the html of a learning html and then use the classes to render it differently on my syllabus website and class website.

Chris there are native micropub apps for iOS and Android. In fact I am sending this from Indigenous on my phone (Android) that is currently in alpha.

Publishes to my blog and syndicates to Twitter

I keep hearing about this survey of teen iPhone use all over the tech press..and I don't believe it. I don't believe any any survey until I read the methodology but this is off.

Not sure 84% of US teens own a smart phone. That seems high. Furthermore the students I work with are mainly Android. They may want an iPhone but the can't afford it.

I wont be in a place to pay my LRA dues until I teach some summer classes. If folks see any interesting or emails on listserv please forward to me.

I still argue LRA should move to a "member recruitment" model and not a "member benefit" model.

We should allow everyone to see listserv.

I wish all this talk about CBE and skills at would take a lesson from 30 years of reading research and realize teaching skills does little without knowledge.

We know we can teach decoding that's easy. Doesn't make a better reader alone.

I am sitting in my car waiting for a break in rain to run inside. Hard to believe schools had two hour delays for ice. Come on spring. Come on spring... It is spring break for my kids

@aaronpk I am helping a functional glass artist collective move to an model.

Currently installed have no website with no e-commerce solution.

Everything runs through Instagram, word of mouth, and PayPal.

I am thinking static web (page builder using whatever credit card PoS they have) and a micro.blog until Instagram takes away unofficial API.

Think the guillotine will drop soon?

Listening to @amywebb @jasonhiner and @ltutterentine on @twit predicting the ne t wave of computing.

In the list of ten companies sheparding in AI @mozilla was not mentioned.

MoCo will never have the resources of those mentioned but there are ethical choices people can make now.

We also need to reconnect and the future of the web. Let's make the data and algorithms behind openly developed for a common good.

My original idea for my next project was to set up micro.blog and a reader for my students... But I need to get my own house in order before building the village.
