A gentle undirected note that hashtags here don't work in the same way as on Twitter. They're purely for searching, not for metrics.

This may not be everyone's view, but Mastodon (to me, at least) shouldn't be about accumulating metrics - it can be so much more: it can be about building community.

Started working on some . Hoping that it's going to be good. 1st with the material tomorrow! Creative Commons sourced, edited in kdenlive, Free Open Source Software.

Have I finished marking? Yes, one class worth. One to go. Hate that I have 2 writing courses in my workload. Still, the students are largely trying hard. Only two blatant wikipedia plagiarists, and even then just a sentence or two I could comment with "Please do not do this again."

Here's a story I did about a long time ago for a class. I rediscovered it when I decided I should dig up neocities again.

Me: You are in full on procrastination mode.

Also me: No, really I need neocities for a talk.

Me: Yeah sure.

Also me: But you know, it's for the kids.

Me: Uh huh. Get to work.

Also me: Does laundry instead of prepping talk.

My uni has a small grant program for open textbooks and other open educational resources. I was privileged to be able to sit on an adjudicating committee and see all the interesting proposals! Results publicized soon. So excited to see these projects come to fruition.
