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

Every movement starts with an idea and if you're seeing this blog post, it means you've discovered the first instance of ClonmelDigital on its own internet URL. This post marks the first time a group of creative media students have collaborated to gather together some of their best work and then to offer it in a public space where potential employers and potential collaborators can find it.

As we ramp up this special website, we are sitting next to a large sign posted just outside the Clonmel Digital Campus. It's all part of Design Clonmel, an initiative designed to bring together creative students, professional creatives, and community members who are interested in co-creation. 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

WE ARE SHARING a survey about the collaborative uses of cloud services with a framework provided by Office 365 and PowerBI. The data points come from survey work finished by creative students on the Clonmel Digital Campus and the PowerBI toolset has evolved through open documentation offered by Stephen Howell at Microsoft Ireland.

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

AFTER 12 MONTHS of using the Sennheiser Memory Mic to create hands-free classroom recordings, I'm very happy to report I have never lost an audio segment with the Memory Mic producing high quality audio or high definition video. 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

MY CURRENT FIRST WORLD PROBLEM revolves around a simple misconfiguration of my Google Tag Manager. It's a skill we teach in the Web Analytics module on the Clonmel Digital Campus. Continue reading

EVEN THOUGH I HAVE read and highlighted The Gen Z Frequency, I know there is nothing better than tuning in directly to the conversations of young teens. I had an opportunity to do that when I accompanied Mia (12) and her friends on a shopping trip to Waterford. Continue reading

WHILE LISTENING to Rich Roberts bemoan the demise of random early morning audiograms, I picked up my Samsung Note 9 and responded with a resolution to restart my morning coffee notes and will publish them as Topgold Audio Clips. 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

I HAVE FIVE MORE welcoming addresses to enjoy before I hang up my whiteboard markers. Today, I'm taking notes in a yellow Moleskine journal during the annual welcoming address. As in previous years, I plan to annotate some notes with rectangles, some with stars, and some with exclamation points. Each of those annotations indicates a call to action I should consider. Continue reading

I'M VISITING a f ew art supply shops in Limerik today, hoping to find a purple Derwent pencil. I share my pencils with my two primary school children and the purple one is most likely to be chewed down to its core. Continue reading

THE IDEA STARTED years ago with an email from John Tierney, an archaeologist who thought I might share a passion for exploring the past. Back then, in 2008, we compared notes while visiting the graves inside the Rock of Cashel. More than a decade later, I'm taking those graveside thoughts into a community project I'll name #MyClonmel and watch young teens along with third level creative students uncover layers of a town's past.

WE SPENT MORE THAN SIX HOURS inside One Microsoft Place and learned how to create Sphero Chariots before donning Hololens (in the photo) to catch over-sized insects running around Microsoft Dreamspace in Dublin. This was a major life event for 11yo Mia, 8yo Dylan, and three members of the Youth Media Team. I wish every primary school student in Ireland could avail of this engaging experience.

I BROKE A SUMMER PROMISE when I purchased another Audible title and then started listening to The Art of Noticing immediately--instead of spending hours under Irish sunshine digging out a new garden. I blame both Rob Walker and Mitch Joel for this transgression. Continue reading

I HAVE SEVERAL BOXES of cables and connectors stacked inside our garage and inside my work space. And I'm delighted whenever I discover an old item gives new functionality to some of my long-standing pieces of recording gear. Today, I enjoyed a simple recording session with XLR mics providing audio inputs to my Samsung Note 9. I captured the workflow in a Topgold Audio Clip on Spreaker. Continue reading

The Brydge keyboard didn't work when I tried it on a Sony Xperia Z5 last year. I will give it a second look now that the Android operating system has updated.
