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.

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.

Hugh MacLeod ( @gapingvoid) last summer when I was putting together the first (hopefully annual, in one way/shape/form) Desire2Learn unConference.
Hugh is a cartoonist, writer, and CEO of
Stormhoek USA, which markets South African wine in the States. I like his comics quite alot, must pick up his book and a bottle of wine.
Whilst looking for an appropriate image for “Crank” in the previous post, I found Darwin Bell, who’s images are beautifully colourful.
