Brainstorming Post Ideas for New Media Scholar with MindNode

June 7, 2015

I’ve always had a fondness for mind-mapping apps. I’ve tried all kinds (MindNote, MindManager, and FreeMind being some of my past favorites. However, for the last eighteen months or so I’ve developed a real fondness for MindNode (formerly MindNode Pro). This isn’t going to be a review of MindNode, but I hope I can find the time to do one of those in the future. Instead, I just wanted to…

February 11, 2012

I’ve always been curious about audio blogging (which I suppose is another way of saying “podcasting”) and lately I’ve been itching to start cultivating the audio component of this blog. In this audio reflection, I begin with a quotation taken from a letter from Vincent Van Gogh to his brother, Theo, in 1888. I’m not sure how I feel about this reflection at the moment, or at least about the…


Blog-to-Book Tools: TnP? Preservation? Portability?

[pullshow] Posted a “test-drive” yesterday of the new Anthologize tool developed, conceptualized, built, hyped (positive connotations-only, please), and released by the “One Week | One Tool” institute funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

[pullthis]There are three reasons I’m…

This past week, while attending some sessions at DMAC, I’ve been encountering some top-notch scholars whose work focuses on accessibility and disability.

A Long Reflection on Writing a Digital Text (Part I: Why I’m Reflecting on This)

Whew. CCCC is over. And I just spent a major part of the last week finishing a journal article manuscript for Kairos. As with almost everything I do, there are some things I really like about it, and there are some that I don’t. Mostly, though, I’m proud of it. (Huge shout out to Hugh Burns, Cheryl Ball, Mike Edwards, and Alexis Hart, each for your help and support!) Now…
