MY ANDROID PHONE needs a factory reset. It's more than five years old, has a cracked screen and a worn charging port, and its battery is well-worn. Continue reading

I'VE STARTED MOST MORNINGS with prompts to my favourite AI. Today I asked Mem.ai to guide me in a process that ensured the results of my questions would include trustworthy evidence from high quality sources. Its first set of answers drilled down into my personal knowledge management system. Continue reading

This AT-protocol intrigues me. Based on your post, I must be a serial offender. I've never hesitate to nudge or ping someone if I thought my post complemented their flow. And I would always offer a h/t to someone whose helpful idea I discovered.

WE GOT TWO Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses and I believe they are the best piece of tech I've purchased this year. Their design, audio performance, camera quality, and charging case deliver value for the €495 I spent to get the two sets of glasses. And I believe I will open new opportunities to spam friends with live streams before the end of the spring semester 2024. Continue reading

DURING MY 3000 FLYING HOURS I vividly remember two occasions when we were cleared to land on a runway that was occupied by another aircraft or by a vehicle. In both cases, I didn't see the conflict but a crew member sitting in the jump seat pointed out the conflict. Continue reading

Tara, do you need a Bluesky invitation code? I'll write more about it. Like Twitter, if you cultivate lists, you can quickly cut through the noise.

CATHERINE CRONIN launches Higher Education for Good in Galway today and I've asked our main library to add the book to our local reference section. In the book, Catherine Cronin and Laura Czerniewicz break down neoliberalism in higher education through a critical lens. They argue that the neoliberal influence has led to a pervasive austerity logic that constricts not just budgets, but every facet of what higher education does. Continue reading

I REMEMBER NOVEMBER 2006 as the month when a dozen students in one of my university classrooms were comparing and contrasting Twitter to Jaiku. Both were simple microblogging services that were redefining how we consumed and shared information. Both are gone. Continue reading

I NEED A NEW Logitech MX Anywhere mouse because my long-serving Logitech MX Anywhere 2 has walked away from one of my classrooms. I used that faithful mouse for more than six years and want to replace it with a newer and pinker version of itself. Continue reading

WE HAVE A tech-savvy 12yo in our home and he's facing restrictions on his use of a smartphone while on school grounds. Even though he doesn't bring a phone to school, he's watching with interest as the Irish Minister for Education Norma Foley writes a memo to Cabinet. The Minister wants a nationwide policy where parents are discouraged from buying smartphones for children of primary age. Continue reading

WHILE CHATTING WITH Larry Maguire, he scrolled back before the Industrial Revolution and asked a thought-provoking question, "What would it mean for humanity if the King of England could just sit on his throne and turn a wheel to produce whatever he needs for his kingdom?" I thought of the time I walked the crypt of Canterbury (above) where I snapped a shot of a window that appears to be a representation of cogs on a wheel. Continue reading

I LISTEN TO BANTER about living in Ireland and during the past three months, the temperature has gone up with Ireland continuing to make generous offers for accommodation to refugees fleeing the war in Ukraine. This week, a heated row erupted between Irish Ministers. [1] Coincidentally, I was working with colleagues in the Netherlands and in Finland as we questioned the level of refugees that European countries should accept. Continue reading

ONE OF THE BEST discoveries of the summer of 2023 has been the very cheap and cheerful Local Link 356 service connecting Clonmel in County Tipperary to Dungarvan in County Waterford. In my experience, it is a well-used service. Continue reading

I SPENT 55 MINUTES on a catch-up Zoom Call with journalist and thinker Karlin Lillington today and want to mark my timeline with the event. Although the purpose of the call was to share what we think about the Fediverse, some of the preliminary commentary helped me resurface some important references to shared experiences.
