T2R2 - Talk (speech bubble) Type (keyboard) Read (book) Review (magnifying glass)

John Findlay, RIP, thank you so much for teaching me such great etiquette for computer mediated communication.

Who knew it would become so mainstream? You knew!

I shared the Zing Technologies "Talk Type Read Review" meeting method on the Open Practice Library, and was then invited to talk about T2R2 on the Open Practice Podcast last year - and just found I can share that with you here too!

Farewell friend.

Marcus & Claire

I can't quite recall the last time we met. Was it at the Auction Rooms in North Melbourne, just before you joined RMIT? No - it was after that, you were at RMIT and we were talking about some Drupal sites you'd inherited. Or perhaps we just spoke on the phone? I wish I could remember that moment, now that you are gone.

To be, or not to be decisive.

Decision making is hard.  

I often worry if I'm making a good decision, or a snap judgement.

A flu virus might look something like this, or it might not.

There's an itchy tickle in the back of my throat.

I saw a doctor. She confirmed that yes, I probably have an upper respiratory viral infection, and no, I probably don't have COVID19. As I've not been overseas, or been in contact with anyone confirmed to have the novel coronavirus strain causing this global pandemic, I don't need to be tested.

For now. 

Doc says rest, fluids, and stay at home.  The usual prescription for colds and flu. But if it gets worse, or doesn't improve in a few days, come back and get another check up.
