So, over the summer I was asked by NITLE (my sometime employer) to write an article about students and technology in a liberal arts context. The result, What do Net Gen students have to teach us? Stories from the connected classroom, has just been posted to Transformations, which is NITLE's "online series of occasional papers exploring the intersection of digital technologies and the liberal arts." Give it a look and tell me what you think, either here or comment directly on the article.
There are a bunch of cool and surprising (to me) elements in this story about 11 Spring St., from the way it developed as a street art mecca to the fact that the art is going to stored away in a time capsule of sorts (a nice way of saying that developers will soon be putting up new walls that will hide the art).
So I've been thinking about moving my blog to another service. Not that I don't like typepad, because I do, but I pay $8 a month and I definitely don't take advantage of all that offers me. You might say, well then take advantage of it, why dontcha? Yeah... probably not going to happen, so I might as well save a few bucks. Over the summer, I created a Wordpress blog for the class I was helping out with, and I was pretty impressed with the features that you get on the free version. I've been playing around with Wordpress again, managed to import my data from this blog, including my blogroll... change might be in the air... Those of you who have changed blog hosts in the past, any advice? What's the biggest downfall, aside from having to redirect my readers?
