Open Education - random stream of consciousness

Submitted by kattekrab on Fri, 17/10/2008 - 21:43

following some new people on twitter now... which prompted me to pop in here and do an update - which I've not done for a while...

As I've mentioned before - I have 3 blogs. I'm not too sure why - they do each have a slightly different focus.  This one, at kattekrab.net has always been the most random, the most uncompromising.  The one least likely to make sense to anyone but me.

K12 openminds conference - pooputer

Travelling halfway around the world to speak at a conference - always a great opportunity to learn something new.

Dr Thornburg talked about a microbial fuel cell - that uses manure and salt water to generate electricity. Nice.

Imagine combining this with the OLPC... or other low watt computing devices... such as mobile internet gadgets and smart phones...

The Joy of Inkscape

Submitted by kattekrab on Sat, 09/08/2008 - 19:15

Well - I submitted an abstract to the linux.conf.au call for participation to do a tutorial on Inkscape.  And I encouraged one of the lead inkscape developers, Jon Cruz, to also make a submission. He tells me he did! Which is very W00t!

But also reduces the chances of having my own tutorial accepted.

Inkscaping for Fun and Profit

Submitted by kattekrab on Wed, 16/07/2008 - 15:43

I finally got around to bloging about and uploading my inkscape talk slides to my biz site Creative Contingencies - http://www.cc.com.au/inkscape-talk

Also included the refs at the end of the talk - so it's a handy ref I can point people to - also went to the trouble of teasing out the various download links seeing as inkscape is truly cross platform and available for windows, mac and a bunch of different linux distros.
