I am still discussing issues I am now aware of regarding the transcription of research interviews http://bit.ly/7JjVv this week. # Just learned that Greenwich Village 10014 is the 3rd most expensive zip code in the US: Forbes.com http://bit.ly/4c3xiy.

Research Interview Transcription Issues

I am nearly finished with my transcription, and as I mentioned last week, I am quickly becoming aware of the politics around transcription, namely those where people assume (uncritically, of course!) the way they handle these issues are done in the same way by everybody engaged in transcription. Into the literature I went for some [...]

The Reader Movie as Complexity

I watched the movie The Reader last night, and was surprisingly pleased with it.

Critical Mass NYC Bike Ride Tonight

I am hoping for nice weather this evening, as I am planning to attend my first Critical Mass ride in Manhattan / NYC this evening. Sponsored (as much as these sort of things can be sponsored) by Time’s Up, it is an opportunity to reclaim the streets for bikes, people, and the joy of [...]

eLearning’s Done; Now, for that Research . . .

Now, I feel I am able to devote all my [...]
