I like the term “trainwreck.” Quite clever. BTW, listening to Amy Winehouse. # Listening to tv in the background. “You are the harbinger of death, Kara Thrace. You will lead them all to their end.” # Working on a consulting project with a tight deadline. I hardly have time to Tweet. I really need [...]

Adam Lambert on American Idol is amazingly good. Far above the others tonight. # The 5th International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry #QI2009 just released the preliminary program http://tinyurl.com/adw9ry # I decided not to renew my #ASTD membership. Just do not find enough value for the cost. # Got my hair cut this evening. Much [...]

Research and Practice in Postmodern Learning

Has been snowing all day. With near record snow fall in the Catskills, global warming is a hard sell for many here. #

Tech Clean-Up Week, Here I Come!

Post-Flu, I now face enough work to nearly make me unwell again! I am behind on email, blog posts, comments, responses, feedback, and rss feeds (again). So, time for another Clean-Up! This time, a bit more ambitious . . .

It is snowing so hard, it looks like a blizzard here in the Catskills. Nice to watch while sipping coffee after being sick for days. # Resting this evening with a book, Ken Follett’s World Without End. Starting to feel better. # I left work early yesterday; I was very sick. #

Multitasking, Meet the Flu

My multitasking met its match this week, when I finally left work a bit early on Friday with a case of the flu. I could not keep anything down, had a temperature of over 100, and with weakness so quick and intense that it took me nearly 20 minutes to struggle walking the 3 blocks [...]
