Come and play with us, Danny

Man, I think I came across one of the coolest things I have ever seen today. I was in a nondescript Z Pizza joint in Franconia, and the pizza wasn’t too terrible as extra-NYC pizza goes. That said, I will forever remember this place not for the pizza, but rather for one of the coolest [...] Continue reading

Talking to Your Kids About Star Wars

Thanks to one of the elite ds106 alum, Modern Selkie, I was turned on to this gem.

What’s odd is that this video really does capture my attitude towards Star Wars and teaching it to my children. In fact, my wife and I are unschooling our kids (which basically means not schooling them in any controlled, [...] Continue reading

Kenny Powers: Greatest Hits

My digital storytelling class is about to embark on the wonderful world of video story telling, and I found a beautiful example from my favorite new HBO series, Eastbound & Down.

It’s Shark Season in bavaland

Late last week DS106 Internaut Ashley Peterson tweeted me a link to this image:

Link to see full-size image and full article here.
This striking image from Mogadishu, Somalia—which is described as the “world’s most dangerous city” in the article—is kind of a culmination of all our talk and crazy links about sharks so far this semester. [...] Continue reading
