Thanks Amy, another song to add to the karaoke list.

I grew up with The Living End’s cover:

I wonder if it is one of those great songs where every generation has its own translation or cover?

The history of the great works of art tells us about their antecedents, their realization in the age of the artist, their potentially eternal afterlife in succeeding generations. Where this last manifests itself, it is called fame. [71] Translations that are more than transmissions of subject matter come into being when in the course of its survival a work has reached the age of its fame. Contrary, therefore, to the claims of bad translators, such translations do not so much serve the work as owe their existence to it. The life of the originals attains eh~ to its ever-renewed latest and most abundant flowering.

I read this tweet Graham. I use Granary and a feed reader to reclaim control. Maybe not ideal, but neither are the algorithms I guess?

Mary Klann reflects upon her use of Hypothesis in the classroom as a means of collaborative communication.

The best things about @hypothes_is, according to me:
You hear from more students, more often.
It provides a consistent, flexible platform for student-student interaction AND student-instructor interaction.
It is free and open source.
It is easy to use.
IT IS FUN! Use it!

I am going to have to give this a try as I am intrigued, especially by the lemon

It is intriguing the efforts required to crack open the black box that is the Facebook algorithm.

Dean, I really appreciate your attempt at balance, even if I do not really like golf. (Can’t agree on everything😜)

This seems like the sort of topic that one might blog about? Here was my attempt:

My fast food social media diet has been replaced by one managed around blogs, feeds and comments. I do sometimes feel I miss out on some things, but trust that if I need to know something that I will probably capture through some other means.

Bianca, I really enjoy the Minefield podcast featuring Waleed Aly and Scott Stephens. Not sure if this is what you are looking for.
