  • Blog Post: Interesting Links 11 January 2010

    I’m headed to Tuesday night. I’m looking forward to helping with some Expression Web workshops and spending time at the Microsoft booth. I’m also hoping to meet a lot of people face to face. One of the events I am looking to go to is the Tweetup that @ jswiatek is organizing. If you’d like information...
  • Blog Post: Interesting Links and Twitter Lists

    Short work week last week. Not a lot of great links showing up in my RSS reader or my email inbox. It seems like a lot of people took the week off completely. I needed a bit of a break and I’m sure many others did as well. I do have a couple of interesting links to share though. Two of them are among...
  • Blog Post: Interesting Links Post November 2 2009

    One interesting thing that happened to me this past week was that Twitter enabled the list function for my Twitter account (@ AlfredTwo ) Lists are a way to create lists or groups of the people you follow on Twitter. One can open up your lists ( or public lists created by others) and see the recent tweets...
  • Blog Post: Interesting Links October 12 2009

    Well here it is Columbus Day and my home wi-fi is dead – long story. So I drove to the library to use their wi-fi. And they are closed. Closed on a holiday? I guess it make some sense. Fortunately the wi-fi reaches the parking lot and so I sit here working on some stuff that absolutely has to get done...
  • Blog Post: Interesting Links Labor Day 2009

    I’m not really working today. Well just this post really. For the most part I have been largely offline for Labor Day weekend. Enjoying family, sun, books, and relaxing. My wife and son start school with their students tomorrow. They’ve been doing the usual back to school teacher days last week. Their...
  • Blog Post: Interesting Links Twittered July 20 2009

      Things are a little conversation focused lately on Twitter. It seems like a lot of the people I follow are teachers on summer break. So while there is a good bit of educational conversation going on there is also a lot of just people chatting. I think that is good though. I feel like I am getting...
  • Blog Post: Computer Science Teachers and Web 2.0

    One of the things that surprises a lot of people I talk to is that there are not a lot of computer science teachers using Web 2.0. By that I mean not many are blogging, Twittering, using RSS readers to follow blogs, participating in online discussion forums or much else except for searching the Internet...
  • Blog Post: Exceptions, Data Validation and Political Correctness

    When I first heard the term “exception handling” as a replacement for “error handling” I was not impressed. At first glance it seemed like political correctness gone wild and brought into computer science. I’d been calling it error handling for a long long time and it worked for me . Why change the term...
  • Blog Post: Links Twittered April 13 2009

    Once again I have found myself Twittering a lot of links in the course of the week. Here, in hopes you will find one or more of them interesting and or useful, is the most recent collection. If you want to see these in a more timely fashion I invite you to follow me at http://twitter.com/alfredtwo ....
  • Blog Post: Recent Links Twittered April 03 2009

    It seems like I have been twittering (at AlfredTwo ) a bunch of links lately. Usually these are light weight links, useful but not a big deal enough to write a blog post about. Since I know that a lot of people are not following me on Twitter (which is fine) and that a lot of people also look for things...
  • Blog Post: The Problem with Lists

    Let’s talk about social networking for a minute. For example bloggers and twitter – and related of course but those are the two things I am thinking most about. There are some good lists out there. For example I like Scott McLeod's list of top 50 education bloggers . And I have been scanning through...
  • Blog Post: Teaching Office Resources, University Lectures, Things Found on Twitter

    Twitter continues to grow as part of my professional learning network. This week I learned about a number of new resources for training, teaching and learning. For example, from MSOfficeResKit   I learned about a large set of customizable training resources for teaching Office 2007. The full list...
  • Blog Post: Top 10 Education People to Follow on Twitter

    This is a list of the people I know who are twittering about education (in general – not much CS education) and who I think are the people to follow if you are looking for people to follow on twitter about education. If you are looking for a very scientific and highly authoritative list of the top education...
  • Blog Post: LearnScratch.ORG

    I keep learning cool things from Twitter. No really. The people I follow are often doing interesting and educational things and sharing via Twitter. Last week someone posted a Tweet about http://learnscratch.org/ . I made a note to visit the site and did so this week. It is pretty cool and very helpful...
