Friday Quick Hits and Varia
October 14, 2011 § 2 Comments
Its crisp fall day here in North Dakotaland, so a perfect time to offer up some quick hits are varia.
- I’ve been working my way through the public peer-review of J. Dougherty and K. Nawrotski’s (eds.) Writing History in the Digital Age. So far, it’s more interesting as a survey than thought provoking.
- Who knew that the Nigerian film industry was capable of this kind of thing…
- Do you ever really need clipart of North Dakota birds, fish, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians? If so, I have a site for you…
- So after a week of using ResophNotes, I don’t like as much as nvALT, but I still like it a bunch. And by saving the .txt files created by both programs in the same dropbox folder, I can share between them almost seamlessly.
- My most recent digital history practicum, focusing on the 50th Anniversary of the Chester Fritz Library at UND, got some love from the local paper, the Grand Forks Herald.
- After a pleasant chat with a potential blogger graduate student, this appeared from the same graduate student. It looks like it’s just getting started, but the photo itself is worth the click.
- Yesterday was Teaching Thursday! Rebecca Rozelle-Stone offered some great thoughts on advising student organizations.
- The Athens News (Greece), Greece on Media page has been linking to my New Archaeology of the Mediterranean World page lately. Everyone should click through to their page from here to show them how much we appreciate the attention.
- I have a digital book project brewing in the near future and I was wondering whether I should try to use Sigil to create the ebook for it.
- Daring Fireball, one of my favorite Mac blogs, borrowed my Corinthian Leather joke (and link!).
- What I’m reading: J. Dougherty and K. Nawrotski eds. Writing History in the Digital Age.
- What I’m listening to: The Mekons, Rock ‘n’ Roll (How is this not available in iTunes or through Amazon’s mp3 store?)
It’s beet time again.
