100% Facebook Free badge

I’m still working on helping people to leave Facebook and that’s the only reason I’m still on the platform. Otherwise I don’t use it, don’t support it, and don’t give them any more of my data. For those who have left, BaseCamp has created a CA BY-SA 4.0 badge for those who have.

Glenn Zucman's Business Cards

Over the weekend, I attended WordCamp Los Angeles and ran into my friend and fellow educator Glenn Zucman. Though I suspect we both know where to find each other (online via our many websites), we traded business cards and chatted about business cards and art for a bit.

Because Glenn is such a creative genius, I wanted to take a moment to share his brilliant business card idea which I loved. Since he does some painting in his work, he’s using variously colored paint chips (choose your favorite color, natch) as business cards over which he’s using a stamp and ink to add on his contact details. What a great mixed-media idea using “found art” for an artists’ business cards.

What I loved even more is that he not only found some nice sized paint chips, which are about twice the size of a typical business card, but he found chips for a paint brand which he actually likes and endorses.

An image to represent how I feel

Replied to a post by Greg McVerry (INTERTEXTrEVOLUTION)

Here is today’s 7/31 yesterday folks were asked to share an image to describe how you felt. Most of you chose a meme. Today we repeat the task but I ask you think metaphorically.

Watch this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJUYSdEdWBg and install the Flickr Creative Commons attribution tool. Then find an image to represent how you feel.

I tried to find a photo of a pig without the ear tags, as I suspect it would have been happier to know it’s not being tracked. I suspect it’s difficult not to be tracked, so we’ll have to live with it at least temporarily…
