All in One Day

May 9

four seasons

So I’m struggling with what each blog should be. Should it be a focused dive on one thing? Should I be trying to cover everything that happened since the last blog? Yesterday was pretty intense. I could spend the whole blog on the AV community...

Rich Tapestry

May 8


My brain was grabbling at titles for the blog/branch–“webs we weave”, “elephants all the way down”. After nearly a year of blogging there’s a haze about which expressions I’ve used already and how well they express what I’ll end up blogging about...

Breathing Room

May 5


I felt like I was in a bit of pressure cooker yesterday with so many different tasks piling up. I’ve managed to relieve the pressure slighlty by requesting that the start date of the edX MOOC get put back by a week. UCBerkeley and edX seem just...

More MediaWiki

Apr 27


So the zone file propagated and we can now access our bitnami/azure instance at MyWikis support got back to me having fixed their VisualEditor which is now working for me on my Mac. That means that MyWikis might...

Today is April 25th, the day that Google shuts down its Hangout API. We’ve been watching this coming for several months, with Google enterprise support hinting at a replacement. Yesterday (April 24th) all the hangout apps stopped functioning and...
