I HELPED DYLAN (11) explain to a room of teachers what he has to do in order to stay in mainstream education. Dylan has used speech and language services for more than six years as he tries to compensate for issues related to his vision and general development. Thanks to supports he has received from local schools and the South Tipperary Support Services, he has made major strides in both his educational and physical development. Continue reading

WE ARE FIVE DAYS from welcoming a small group of educators to the annual ICT in Education Conference. I'm learning important concepts in the background as we plan this in-person event. Done right, proper metrics strengthen trust, build budget, and increase business impact for marketing teams. But according to Forrester, 77% ofglobal B2B decision-makers say that using data and analytics to guide decisions is one of their top weaknesses. An Adobe fact sheet, Metrics That Make a Big Difference, covers helpful tips for measuring and proving the value of marketing content and campaigns. A few tips to get you started: ● Tip #l : Don't fixate on costs. ● Tip #2: Define your metrics and how you'll measure them upfront. ●Tip #3: Choose a marketing attribution medal. So the first thing I will do today is generate tags for an email campaign. Continue reading

I have an Android phone that doesn't seem to have a simple app for writing. I can use Bear Writer on iOS handsets and Scrivener on the iPad Pro but I can't locate an Android app that has the same simple functionality. I may need to try Day One journaling again. Continue reading

SUMMER WEATHER is trying to warm up Ireland and with those warmer temperatures I'm starting to notice animals acting more actively as they search our back garden for food. Perhaps some of these animals have come out of hibernation. I wonder if anything about their lower activity level could offer clues about how I might benefit from fasting. Continue reading

WE HAVE A BLACK GOTHIC DOOR in our back garden and it's often in my field of view when I create Topgold Audio Clips. As I post this blog at the end of April 2022, the door isn't findable on Tin Eye and that surprises me. Continue reading

I REMEMBER WHEN everyone who was on Twitter in Ireland in mid-January 2007 could fit inside the conference centre of Tipperary Institute. I'm curious how those 150 people, including 15 from our college campus, view Twitter becoming a private company. Continue reading

AFTER HEARING CASES of friends catching COVID, I thought that since I had escaped any infection during our masked phase that I was impervious. I can admit I'm wrong and now hope I can shake this virus within the next seven days so I can be back in the classroom to finish the semester. But if I can't there's always Teams to wrap up everything. Continue reading

SOMETIMES I ANSWER questions about the 300 hard cover books we have in our home. I draw my answers from friends who have read more than 10 books during the previous 12 months. Friends who read help me understand why I enjoy reading. Continue reading

IF YOU READ my personal blog, you know I've visited TippFM, our regional radio station. I would like to find a way to add to the TippFM studios some of the creative broadcasting skills we teach in our Technological University classrooms. I think there might be a way to do this with the help of Science Foundation Ireland (SFI). Continue reading

I'M LEADING a group of creatives into the Land of Web3 and believe Marc Canter (snapped above on a Dublin street in 2006) reads the landscape correctly when he says Web3 cannot be about one technology or one way to do things or one tech stack. Web3 becomes mainstream when it is open, flexible, and inclusive. Continue reading

THE 32 DAYS between the 10th of January and the 13th of February represent a period of death in my family that I observe every year. I feel the effects of aging more vividly when these memories sweep over me and in 2022 it's even stronger because I remember my father when he was as old as I am now and I know how quickly he passed away a few years later.

OCCASIONAL VIEWERS may have noticed I now carry a three inch scar on my right cheek. I've discovered it changes to a tender blue line when I cycle during winter mornings in Ireland so I'm going to be the guy with a balaclava who occasionally stops for takeaway coffees in Clonmel on weekdays.

THERE IS A LOT of cross-talk among some of my friends, some in the word cloud above, when they're put into Facebook jail or when friends of theirs are deplatformed. I wonder if you've ever fallen into any of those spaces? This is something I've been considering since 2008. Continue reading
