“Did you realise you might have lost your Google 'View image' button? I didn't. "Anger at Google image search 'peace deal'" https://t.co/RW2doyhaaf via @Downes There's a lot to think about in here.”

This is fascinating to me for a couple of reasons: When I tested it I’d forgotten I’d been using duckduckgo.com on all my devices for 4 months, so I could see a view file link. Obviously I’ve not missed google searches.

Is it such a bad thing that you have to visit a site to download images. That gives you thinking time and might help you check copyright.

The dilemma in supporting schools in using technology: Give out fish or teach to fish. Before I came back to school I was faced with this problem more than once.

What I would say now, in hindsight, is that if you make the solution yourself it adds risk. I thoroughly enjoy making simple scripts and workflows, but these are generally fragile. You might end up with more long term support than you thought, or worse raising and dashing expectations.

In my part-time life I am still supporting Glow Blogs. Quite often it would be easier to fix something in response to a request for help. More often now I try to write instructions instead. I can add these to the help and point the next problem a those.

I need to get back to microcasting. I enjoyed listen to this on my commute. The focus on one subject in the short form podcast is valuable.

Daring Fireball: Kottke on the State of Blogging . There are a lot of great blogs still going, but as old ones drop off, there aren’t many new ones taking their places. It ain’t like it used to be. I read both DF & Kottke I get more from blogs where I can join in.

@pyrmont’s The Death of (Mass-Market, Ad-Supported) Blogging who have always blogged in obscurity, welcome to the club. For us, there never was an audience. I came to blogging for community (more sustainable than an audience? ). I stayed for the effect it had on my thinking.

a post by Tom Woodward (bionicteaching.com) Every time I hear something about limiting screen time I cannot help but think about how poorly the concept has been thought out. If we talked about “food time” instead maybe that would help us think that while time matters (eating for hours each day is probably a bad […]
