EDCMOOC: Utopia, as x approaches c

There’s a lot to like about the EDCMOOC currently running in Coursera. It’s probably the closest thing I’ve seen to a cMOOC on an xMOOC platform. That said, the platform hinders its greatness. This course would be just about perfect if it existed entirely on the open web. Indeed, much of it does. I like […]

Permanence Lost

Reading Chris Lott’s poetic comment about loss in response to Jim’s assertion that Nothing is Lost …there’s not only nothing wrong with writing one’s poem and sending it down the river on fire, it might be a significantly better way to transcend the technical issues and consider what it means to *be* the idea struck me […]

Pre-show Preamble + Show Post-show Post-amble It was great but my only critique would be that Scott forgot to tell them he […]

Okay, so Alec Couros called me out for identifying the white elephant in the #ds106Radio room but still not actually discussing it.
