My plane's TV screen is stuck on this mystifying frame:

Conference submission in. And a tiny article that has been haunting my dreams for a year or so has finally been submitted to a small OA journal, too.

Some may find my Teaching, Planning, Preparation and Assessment Tracker from by useful.

NFT, blockchain thoughts 

"We have a problem."
"What's that?"
"Digital things are functionally infinite and there's no scarcity to be found."
"How is that a problem?"
"We need to restrict it."
"Oooookay....? Still not sure how lack of scarcity is a pr—"
"I've invented a number that says I alone own this digital thing."
"What? By what authority?"
"Because I wasted a crapton of energy to make this number."
"I'm a genius"
".... So you're wasting resources to invent a number for the sole purpose of restricting access to otherwise-functionally-unlimited things?"
"It's the future."

Orientation for new job today. Presentation from the chair of the university (my translation): "We want our internet lessons to be revolutionary." (Oh please!) "Not just paperless." (Hmm.) "And we have support staff actively researching ways of innovating and supporting online teaching. Please feel free to consult them." (Actually astounded!)
