A warm welcome to all my InsDsg 619 classmates. You’re going to notice that my blog looks a bit different from the rest of the class blogs hosted on Blogger. That’s because I already had a blog (make that four) and there really wasn’t any need to make another.
You can find a little more about me on the About page, you can find out a lotta bit more about me by simply visiting the root of this domain, briandigital.com. There my homepage lists all my blogs, plus the other places I frequent on the Internet. Feel free to friend me on Facebook or Twitter, for example.
And now, the questions proposed by Ms. Brenda,
Q1.) What made you want to take this course?
A: I’m in this program to study the interaction between education and technology. This course applies.
Q2.) What are 3 things that anyone who knows you knows about you?
A: 1, tech geek; 2, cycling geek; 3, lovely wife and I are expecting our first son in September.
Side note about this class blog: To see my posts for 619, you’ll need to visit this specific URL: briandigital.com/619 which redirects you here. If you visit the main part of this blog, briandigital.com/evolve you won’t see these 619 posts. I’ve set the whole category of 619 posts only to appear here, as they may confuse regular readers of the blog. This means the general RSS feed for the site will also not show the posts (theoretically). If you’re not familiar with RSS feeds, I’d highly suggest checking out this short video explaining them:
All of CommonCraft’s videos are great, simple primers on how regular humans can take advantage of some of the latest web technologies, like social networks, Twitter and more. If you’re looking to get started in web technologies, start there.
