Tweekly Summary from 2010-09-19

  • Google Goggles et al are virtually augmented reality. A Twitter conference backchannel is reality-augmented virtuality. #thatcamp #
  • RT @supraphonic: RT @malki: Yo mama so old the Illiad is a metaphor about dating her #
  • Kognice 2010 is the first conference I've been to that served exclusively vegetarian food. Stereotypes about Czech food be damned. #
  • Many older Czech academics seem to present literature survey conference papers without any original research. Not sure it's a bad thing. #
  • Listening to a talk on metacognition at http://www.kognice2010.cz. Skeptical about its applicability to suitability for political office. #
  • More Evidence Our Memory Stinks http://ow.ly/1qRQ6d #
  • Sometimes I feel like lifelong learning refers to learning of 'things we find acceptable to learn' rather than just learning. #edchat #

  • RT @RabelaisA11y: #Accessibility and #standardisation including people with disabilities: updated Stand4All website: http://www.stand4all.eu #a11y #
  • Indictment of the pseudo-scientific in the study of personality "48% of the population have 'personality difficulties'" http://j.mp/cZhiVY #
  • Glad to see Sapir defended so thoroughly. Far worthier name to be in popular consciousness than Chomsky or Pinker. http://ow.ly/1qQNRD #
