JUNE 29, 2012 The Nexus 7: first thoughts for Education
So Google has now personally joined the other big PostPC device makers (Amazon, Microsoft and of course Apple) in creating a dedicated tablet device designed to serve those consumers who choose their particular operating and media eco-systems.

JUNE 26, 2012 mLearnCon 2012
I was honoured to do a Key Note at mLearnCon 2012 in Silicon Valley, sharing a combined session with Clarke Quinn ( @Quinnovator ) and /David Metcalf ( @dmetcalf ) It was a fun and dynamic session, which seemed to catch the right mix of theory, practise and vision. See my presentation, below: The session was focussed on some practical lessons from the field (the 3 of us are major m-learning veterans!). It is already here. We just need to get better at harnessing it! One size does not fit all – there isn't only one approach. YOUR domain area. Your data. What do you think?

JUNE 26, 2012 Blogphilosophy: today my hero died
Today my hero died. This is not a euphemism, he really was my hero. He showed me on many occasion that actions define your place in the world. We lived together for 17 years. Making our way through life, mostly doing our own thing. At times having to cope with the wishes or limitations from others. He taught me that activism is a way of life: if you decide upon an action, you go for it full-heartedly (he thought he was a black panther). His agility even let him pick bats out of the sky (though he did not find them very tasty and he did not understand why I incessantly tried to save them).
