IT questions

Resolution: Spread the news that I am not employed as an expert for IT questions of all sorts. I do like answering questions, but please let them relate to using learning technologies. Would it improve my working day by quite a lot if the questions were varied, they would sometimes surprise me, and occasionally they would contain some new 'stuff'? Oh well, with the move to Moodle everything will be new. Let's hope it'll also be just a little bit different.

Am thinking about Web 3.0 (many people call it the semantic web), and was amused by the fact that wikipedia has its contribution re Web 3.0 within the entry for Web 2.0. Only discovered this coincidentally when checking if wikipedia is up and running again. Pleased to say: it is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_2.0

Wikipedia Blackout

No wikipedia today! A 'blackout' day to raise awareness that "the US congress is considering legislation that could fatally damage the free and open Internet", see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page

Personally, I can get on with all things wikipedia today, though - the German language version is still available. Normally there's hardly any occasion to use my German here in the UK, but today it could be different :-)

3 January - first day at work in 2012

Looking out of the window in the morning:


Looking out of the window in the afternoon:


In between looking I managed to get some work done. Mostly catching up with emails and projects. Tried (yet again) to somehow make a connection between different google accounts to have a 'combi' Google+. It didn't quite work. Google keeps asking me to do 'stuff', today it wanted me to replace my blogger profile with my Google+ profile. Exploring this option got me into the above mentioned 'combi' question. Technology eats time. Yet - overall not a bad start.
