Seattle Bunko Breakfast: Video Clip 1

Dan Pink, author of The Adventures of Johnny Bunko: The Last Career Guide You’ll Ever Need visited Seattle in late July and was kind enough to host a happy hour version of a “Bunko Breakfast” at the Arctic Club Hotel.

PING– In response to my post, Call for Whitepapers on SCORM- Do SOMETHING please Brooks Andrus wrote a blog post titled, The Elearning Industry Is Dead.

Rapid Syndication Surfing: FeedDemon & NetNewsWire

Reading blogs has become a primary source of news for me. I sorely missed FeedDemon when I switched to Mac. Then I found about about NetNewsWire, but dawdled on buying it.

Elearning, Machinima and the Law

One of the great take-aways of Learning 2006 for me was Machinima. Now there’s some IP follow-up that is due for anyone considering using Machinima content for training.

Cheat This Book- Gadgets, Games & Gizmos

I’m barely in "Gen-X." I’m about 12 years too young to truly appreciate the Abbie Hoffman reference I just made. I’m about 12 years too old to be a real "gamer." Nonetheless, here I am in my 40’s staying up late to write a book report on Gadgets, Games and Gizmos for Learning by Karl […]

Time Off for Good Behavior
