Guardian Article Twitter In History Out

March 30, 2009

I just read this and was saddened to see such shallow thinking. Why any particular technology should be singled out at all is one thing. Why adopt it as a replacement for understanding culture is dreadful. This is further compounded in a digital context because understanding and working with those from other cultures becomes all the more significant in ...

Twitter allegiance

December 24, 2008

In the spirit of passing time at Christmas, and following on from a heated discussion about the meaning and robustness of community in online environments, I invited 100 of my 1,276 current Twitter followers to fill in a quick survey cunningly designed to provide a fairly wonky measure of community allegiance. Of course I welcome critical feedback about ...

Out there? Incohate coalescent worlds

October 18, 2008

There is lots happening out there. I had my attention drawn to the Eduserv Virtual World Watch (VWW). Eduserv and VWW have just published a "snapshot of virtual world activity in UK Higher and Further Education", available here. No single conclusion from the report, but an account of an incohate, coalescent sphere of frenetic activity and much more to ...

To Blog or micro Blog, that is the query

October 10, 2008

I have watched and contributed to, Twitter now for something like six months. I admit that I have got a bit addicted. I have developed a ‘habit’ of checking Twitter when ever I read my email. I do not use it on mobile devices; apart from my phone I have none! I only watch/follow about 50 people, to follow ...

Does the e-framework work?

July 05, 2008

I have just been re-reading parts of the e-framework (well, it was a 'slow news day') so that I could offer colleagues on the Streamline project advice on creating Service Usage Models (SUMS).  Everytime I look at the framework documentation, I find it 'worthy but dull' ... and I suspect the framework itself is worthy but doomed. When I ...

Twitter Plug-in for Moodle Stage 1 Complete

February 14, 2008

Twitter is one of those services that people either seem to love or 'don't know what it's for'. Rather like the camera phone when it first came out. The combination of the instant message feel with the attributes of a blog could be potentially very useful. In terms of usability there is both the immediacy of SMS and IM ...
