@grantpotter @greeneterry @giuliaforsythe Thanks Grant. Terry managed to keep all the cats moving in a general direction on this one… go team!

Four more days until the SSHRC is due.

I think the work is important... it's certainly important to me. I'm launching a year long discussion about uncertainty. Trying to do a futures open course (about uncertain things... and getting ready for them) i just don't have that raging excitement that I used to ride on doing these projects.

I'm older. True. But it's not just that. Things are different. I'm different.

@actualham funny... because i just used the word in a serious way for the first time in about 7 years.

@actualham I've decided that i'm pronouncing it 'toot' like 'book'. That's helping.

@dkernohan It's been interesting watching Breitbart move from being a hulking figure in the shadows to a 'respectable member of society'. I'm just going to hope that "do what i want or imma gonna punch you in the face" continues to not be an acceptable approach. It'll be interesting to see what happens to Kelloggs

@econproph right. that makes sense. thanks for contributing what you are now. There's a real dearth of it... and it's desperately needed.

@econproph on second thought... you sound like you've gone and done research and stuff... smacks of effort. I just made stuff up on my blog :)

@davecormier read your post. If it helps, you might be interested in these posts from last spring re: change mgt in ed from my HLC conf talk.

@daniellynds okay so um you can't quote these posts, hey? i refuse to call them toots yet. i'm stuck in my own heretofore undiscovered respectability.

The best thing about mastodon right now is that it seems to crash... fond thoughts of the fail whale.

So... talking turkey now... could we use this platform instead of Slack for community learning approaches? What's that going to look like i wonder...

I thought these things... smelled bad... on the outside.

@Otterscotter I'm not really sure there'd be any option for control. I think that would just make it a more frustrating experience.

I imagine getting my hands tangled in the mastadon fur, and kind of finding bits of things I can't quite or don't quite want to identify.
