Forward

So, John recently showed me this cool service, Foward. They are useful for two main things: showing off your development on localhost to people on the other side of the NAT, and developing on localhost with calls to external services that need to then call you back. Basically, it’s just a reverse proxy. So, without …

Metablogging

Wow, so it turns out I do write a lot, about thoughts and analyses and impressions and responses, but that’s all going on over on G+ lately. Something about the medium works. Less metadata, better commenting community. No expectations that posts are fully developed, so they end up being, well, fully developed, because I can …

Wind and Things Unspoken

Here I am, sitting in a mostly dark room, processing thoughts on class and drama and just not talking about it inspired by watching the beginning of Downton Abbey, and the wind outside is howling. Yeah, I love fall.

Find the Fun

Lately, I’ve been posting over at G+. It’s been longer-than-Twitter-shorter-than-blog type half-baked posts. But I think this warrants a blog post. In Nora England and B’alam Mateo-Toledo’s endangered languages class, we were discussing the issue of getting community members—most particularly kids, the lynchpin of language revitalization—to care about their endangered language. And most particularly, to …
