KNOWING FULL WELL what works when I stick with good resolutions, I'm rewarming 2018 and 2019 resolutions and going with confronting and executing three numbers every day, numbers that happen to be on many of the batteries we're using with a home automation project. They are the numbers three, seven, and 1000. Each holds a specific meaning that Paul O'Mahony encouraged me to set when he first shared the concept of sticking with easy-to-grasp sequences.

DAUGHTER MIA turns 13 in nine months time and Twitter tells me I've been tweeting for the past 13 years.

I FEEL VERY INCOMPLETE when I fail to share snippets of life across different forms because no matter how hard I try to enjoy the ephemeral state of Instagram Stories, I get much more joy out of hearing people talk about their daily lives. And the written word resonates with me even more. Continue reading

We have a body of audio work scattered in various places so we know it should be rather straightforward to process those audio snippets and produce a syndicated show that connects current students to past graduates and future employers. In the first instance, we will simply port content from the Spreaker Distribution System. Continue reading

I REMEMBER CHATTING WITH staff from the Irish Revenue Commission in 1996, well before the concept of taxing online commerce was rolled into Ireland. Back then, I marveled at the resilience of Amazon--but the Amazon of 1996 is a mere peanut compared to the Amazon of 2019. Continue reading

EVERY NOVEMBER, in the sleepy village of Cong, County Mayo, I try to join 80 other people to share my perspective on a major topic. In November 2019, the topic will be about "community" and I plan to update this blog post to share thoughts that extend from a blog post I've made about what community means to me. Continue reading

I'm now helping other educators understand the simple and effective workflow involved to quickly produce and share recorded minutes from academic settings. Continue reading

DURING AN INTRODUCTORY session with new students on our Clonmel Digital Campus, I asked how many people were using Instagram and more than half of the audience raised their hands. Although fewer than a half dozen said they had posted to Instagram that morning, my simple survey suggests Instagram is the pocket media channel of choice for our creative students. Continue reading
