Learning with Apple Live 

Apple's live events keep evolving, and I would love to be able to use their "live broadcasting" toolkit—essentially turning their website into a media-rich live blog of the event.

Techitecture, The Emergence of 

My involvement in Teacher College's Learning Theater project makes me appreciate how fast-evolving audio/video technologies (or better: display/capture/collaboration technologies) challenge traditional architecture.

Around the Campfire at IR12 

The Twitter hash for the conference was #ir12. I had a chance to meet Mike Monello from Campfire and hear about his work in transmedia marketing. Monello was one of the producers on the Blair Witch Project. I also went to a panel about communities and behaviors of fans online.

Today I attended the final day of an intensive workshop event hosted by Working Films. The event brought together a diverse group of talented filmmakers, powerful activists, and leaders in the education sector – I was lucky I got to crash their party!

I like the Webbed Footnotes project, where one can "annotate web pages with comments and can read and reply to the annotations left by others."
