Writing about web page http://icanhascheezburger.com/
It’s been about a year since I last checked on the ICHC site – it’s apparently now quite well know. The extra functionality on the site actually shows how web 2.0 makes things work better too. There’s now voting, there’s an RSS feed, buttons that automatically add the entry to a social bookmarking site, ways to rank entries and competitions to vote on them. Or maybe I didn’t know enough about web 2.0 to realise the significance of these in getting the message out there.

I’ve just finished a paper for ALT-J analysing the range of learning activities that are taking place in the Theatron project. It’s been useful for me because it’s helped me get my head round the range of activities that are taking place in it, and the choices that people are making about the environment. One choice is that people are using it for collaboration and production, but not for PBL, on the whole. This is probably because it makes more sense to do this using the web, then bring the knowledge into SL. Still – if we do develop the PBL side of things, I’ve dropped a SLURL to a potential resource here http://slurl.com/secondlife/Education%20UK/242/53/22 This is by Chris Eggplant – who is possibly the strangest looking av I’ve met in SL – and that’s me saying that!

There does seem to be something addictive about playing around with all the combinations. I wonder how much it makes a difference to your social presence in these online communications though.

Just got this photo of my new cat. Only four weeks before I can collect her.
