Ready for next research topic: from “The Good Life” to “The Human Condition.” Recommendations?

Why do my favorite Firefox add-ons, Firebug and Web Developer, cause 3.0.5/6 to slow to a crawl? Disabled … all good.
What’s meaningful is what meets current needs, whatever they are.
@bentforkz That was a great first day, Ethan. Glad you’ve come to Bates.
Developing a presentation on the history and future of media ;) I’m reminded: what matters is what’s meaningful.

What a day! If you have to be home with a recovering child, this is a good one. Of course, those ice dams are calling my name, too.
Fading. Warm stove. Cat on couch. Family sleeping. Good night.
Beautiful moonrise last night. Bright! I went outside in shirtsleeves to get wood. I’m now either not feeling well, or in sync with season.
@dontgetcaught My daughter catnapped on the same schedule as our sweet kitty today, and is now feeling much better. Animal comforts …

@lonniehodge I do see your point. But do network TV ads still capture the gestalt? I’ve been so long without them, I’m out of touch …
@lonniehodge Much better to watch a series straight through, no ads. Why watch programmed TV anyway? Other than tabloid TV news ;)

Migration from newsletters to blogs is at Wesleyan not Yale. My mistake.
RT: @SpecialDee Newsletters to blogs: “That’s one way to create communities that have niche value for members.” Yes. A smart move for Yale.
Wesleyan: senior staff has asked for all newsletters to be migrated to blogs. #wordcamped
Wesleyan feels, now, that they could have chosen WP for their main site. #wordcamped
Wesleyan is using WPMU for dozens of sites using only one theme, three style sheets to customize per site. #wordcamped

Yale created WP anonymization plug in to create nickname and protect student identities. #wordcamped
