THE MOST POWERFUL community dynamic I have enjoyed in Ireland stemmed from monthly Open Coffee Meetups in Limerick. I want to rekindle that energy by layering the Open Coffee dynamic inside the Grow Remote movement and I think I will try to do this in Clonmel, County Tipperary, Ireland in 2019. Continue reading

DURING A BREAK from light rain showers, I launched my DJI Phantom 3 Pro drone for a series of camera moves next to part of the old town walls of Clonmel. During the third short flight, I got a "motor overload" message that caused the drone to automatically land. Continue reading

USING A LAZY RAINY DAY as an imperative to poke around in some boxes, I'm proud to say I discovered a five year old Logitech Keys-to-Go (for iPad) and it effortlessly connected to my Android phone. So I'm a happy bunny since I have nearly everything I need to cycle with work without a laptop burden. Continue reading

TEN AND A HALF YEARS AGO, Ewan McIntosh visited County Tipperary to share his perspective on education. As expected, we learned a lot. And as many thoughtful people know, breaking bread is one of the most effective ways of fostering a collaborative connection. R. Wolf Shipon makes this same point in an open letter he wrote to fellow psychologists immediately after the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre. I'm sharing Wolf's comments from his Facebook post.

There's a whole service market dedicated to selling foam inserts and it's fun to cut up strange shapes so the inside of the case looks custom-made for the gear you have.

A COMBINATION OF health issues along with stark warnings from scientists have encouraged me to eat less meat. The UN says switching to a meat-free diet makes an immediate reduction of 50% in one's carbon footprint so that's what I'm doing. This green issue was one of several items worth remembering in my six-minute review of Sunday news in Ireland. Continue reading

ALTHOUGH I READ the acclamation voiced on Twitter and Facebook, it took me a day to realise the impact of several very special moments I witnessed first hand while standing in a media scrum set up by Ireland's Youth Media Team when interviewing President Michael D. Higgins and his wife Sabina. It all happened within the space of 10 minutes at the start of Feilte 2018, the annual conference of the Teaching Council of Ireland. Continue reading

WE USE A Ricoh Theta S #ricoh360 camera in every academic course I teach on the Clonmel Digital Campus and I’m impressed at how its use improves the critical visual skills of students. There is so much more in an image when you can spin a photo up, down, and around. Continue reading
