The hardest part of any social networking involves continuity. I watch well-intentioned students fall off the edge when they stop posting (and stop listening as well as stop lurking). It would be fun to compare notes with your DBS cohort during the #ictedu event we're planning for LIT-Thurles in late April 2015.

I HAVE DISCOVERED how easy it is to make 30-second stories come to life instantly with Lumia Storyteller, an app running on our Windows Phones. I embedded our Tipperary Morning Commute below with notes after the break. Continue reading

I have taught social media since 2006 when our Clonmel cohort represented 30 of the first 150 Irish on Twitter. Every semester I try to amp up our results and this year our focus should result in a playbook others might enjoy using. Continue reading

I AM WRITING a Last Will and Testament that specifies the use of a driverless hearse at my funeral. I think this specification would help jump start the industry segment. Continue reading

I HAVE TO HAND BACK the Microsoft Surface Pro next week and I can already feel my loss of productivity. That was always going to happen because having the little tablet was meant to keep me working while a creaking Windows 7 laptop got a long stay in the maintenance bay. I've three quick observations worth sharing to anyone considering the jump to a Microsoft Surface. Continue reading

WE BURIED MY mother, Evelyn Frances Goldbach, in the family plot today. In her memory, we have pulled together a five-minute video from dozens of photos she enjoyed viewing during her 88 years. Continue reading

MY MOM PASSED away at 0630 today and we are following her instructions for her funeral arrangements and burial next week. Along with my four brothers, we also plan to celebrate a few moments of joy when visiting mom's favorite haunts (like Eden Resort shown in the image). Continue reading

IN A PERFECT WORLD, I visit the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum on the same afternoon as the USAF Band. But it's not a perfect world, so I flick into my YouTube history for the last time I heard moon rocks resonate with the holiday sound of a perfect Flash Mob. Continue reading

I AM PART of a vigil with brothers now watching my 88 year old mother (in photo snapped 70 years ago) slowly wind down life through rationing of fluids and medication. In some ways, what's happening now to my mom is part of her cycle of life because she grew up in an era where rationing happened during the Great Depression and knew rationing as a high school student during WII.

MY MOM'S laboured breaths haunt me as I cross the Atlantic to join my four brothers at her bedside. She is 88 and she did not expect to live beyond Christmas. I have 48 minutes of audio conversations with my mother sitting in the Music folder of the Surface tablet and I wish I had noise-cancelling cans to permit me to listen to those chats I've recorded during my final two visits to Lancaster County. The rolling rural landscape kept its agricultural identity for the 71 years mom has lived on Honeysuckle Lane. She is the neighbourhood elder in all sorts of ways. I hope I can reach her side before she has her final sleep. [Bernie Goldbach is an elder blogger who uses his Windows Phone as a life blogging tool ] Continue reading
