This boy has a new (‘nother) blog

Howdy.

To kick-off my journey back into academe as a student, I’ve created a new site. I’ll use it to document and share research and activities related to my Masters of Arts program. It’s partially a blog, partially a journal, partially whatever you want it to be.

So far, so good. Have a visit, if you’re interested. Follow along, if you’d like.

This site will still continue to see some action.

Beatjazz & Different Ways of Knowing

Part of a series of weekly TED talks I’ve been watching and thinking about. Have a look, have a think, comment if you’d like. Some interesting thoughts here with regards to accessibility.

Onyx Ashanti: This is beatjazz

The results so far.

Art.

Quotes from Seth Godin’s Linchpin:

An artist is someone who uses bravery, insight, creativity and boldness to challenge the status quo. And an artist takes it personally.

…art is the ability to change people with your work, to see things as they are and then create stories, images and interactions that change the marketplace.
