    Not much to say about this episode, it was kind of short and didn’t really go over very much. There was some talk about Obler, maybe I need to sleep and listen again in the morning. I’ll get back to it.…

    Doctor Oblivion was/is/canbe Doc Groom? Yadontsay?! Flancy. Well, Scott, I agree that this is a lot of work for a 100 level course, but on the other hand, I’ve noticed that its very useful as a fast track to many ideas that take the average Liberal Arts student four years …

    Okay, he’s going to clarify what he meant by forming groups to work on something with people in the course. He’s also going to go over the audio assignments one by one. And now, suddenly, it’s mario. And trance? That’s an assignment submission? Sound effects story… It’s a Doc Groom …

    Scott Lo taught a loosely connected ds106 type class while he was teaching in Japan? Scott Lo taught in Japan? That’s pretty cool. Oh, now he wants us to pay attention to the open-online kids. Maybe, maybe, Scott Lo. At this point he’s planning a resource page. Scott! Why are …

    by

    I’m going to be honest, this episode was a bit of a ramble. A lot of talk of compression rates and types, stuff most people can learn from wikipedia in half the time. There was also a lot of background music, which can be a bad thing if it’s the …

    I missed posting about episode 005? How does this happen to me? I’ve heard this one like five times. Podcasts… Back to the home studio in order to keep up the podcast structure, which I personally appreciate. He talks about his netvibes and how its a great tool for teachers …

    Comment Troll

    by

    I’ve started this habit, where I load Scott Lo’s netvibes site and click on every blog that has a real name. Then I comment and every post made in the last day and a half. It’s kind of nice. I hope everyone is doing this. Every time I do I …

    This Weekend..

    by

    Okay, so my laptop has decided to be cranky, by deleting all of my bookmarks and browser history. Fortunately I back these things up, unfortunately I’m out of town and don’t have access to my backups or my desktop. So I will be using a slightly cranky macbook that feels …

    MUSIC!!!!

    It’s kind of loud. I’m pumped though, mostly because my ears are ringing and my hair is standing due to blown ear drums. He speaks a little bit about the audio stuff, but mostly tells us to follow our own flow and what his day is like. Nice and …

    Yellow Plank

    by

    I initially wanted to do the invader in color, but I found it was a lot more fun to do something no one would expect. Like the plank of wood he had been behind.

    Three Stars!…

    This is just a short introductory audio sample. No music. Just a little bit of Scott Lo letting us know who he is and what he will be helping us with throughout the semester. He plans to help us make our own Twilight Zone themed radio show later on in …

    Gardner Campbell

    by

    This video of Campbell is just a bit sermon-like, not that this is a bad thing, even down to the cadence. Sometimes the world needs a little preaching. He talks of the future of technology in terms of how we will react to our environment. To clarify, he’s not talking …

    I’m currently listening to ds106 radio, the scottlo-down or scottlo-way or something. It’s my first listen to this radio show and I’m going to live blog it (full disclosure: I used to be the music director for WMWC: umw radio). The music is awful, so far. So, there’s that. On …

    This is my ‘get to know you’ photo. I would say I spend too many hours in this exact state: tired, reading glasses on, headphones, pajamas, and in a room surrounded by books I don’t have the time to read.…

    Hiking the AT

    by

    This photo is from the day Rachel and I hiked the Appalachian Trail. We’re big fans of hiking, so we try to go whenever we can. Despite having a lot of work to do for ds106, we decided I could just do that later, so we headed out to the …

    Minimalist Book Cover

    by

    It’s a great book that makes you remember a single line years later. “he touched the switches, but the red light falling from the cockpit lamps upon the dial-hands was so diluted with the blue evening glow that they did not catch its color.” This book is all about the …

    Doctor Who?

    by

    So, my pop culture Venn diagram is a little lame, but only in the sense that I’m a little lame. I’ll admit that much. There’s nothing wrong with being a little lame, right? Well, anyway. Doctor Who is one of my favorite shows, featuring an ages-old, time-traveling alien. I used …
