Cool Web 2.0 Tool - Sumo Paint

Image editors are rampant in the Web 2.0 world. While most of them are free, so many seem geared to really basic editing: crop, resize, and get-rid-of-red-eye. So, it's a thrill to run across a full-featured, robust online program that is simple enough for young students and sophisticated enough for graphics geeks. My benchmark for a superior graphics program is whether it supports layers. Layers are the key to subtle and complex graphic design imagery.… Continue

Goals: The Personal Before the Professional

As I mentioned the other day, I am a big believer in goals. So much so that I always write them down.

Yet often, when I think of goals, I think in terms of career and professional aspirations. In a way it seems as if this is the way I am wired. (As is the rest of America. We are all about "productivity". Buncha A-type personalities in the new land, that's for sure.)

During this last decade in particular much has been said and written, many courses devised and delivered, on how to achieve that apparently elusive vision of a work/life balance.

Cool free app for combining screen shots or screen motion with audio, to create instructional presentations.

This week I got my Jing on! I recently heard about Jing (found on the web at jingproject.com), and after a quick visit to their web site I knew that this might be the type of tool I’ve been thinking about trying out for creating some brief instructional videos. The fact that it was free made it a no brainer to go… Continue

Wanted: Non-Accredited Online Education

We are all familiar with the endless myriad of online educational institutions, such as the University of Phoenix and DeVry. They offer diplomas for taking courses from the convenience of your home, at prices that are often competitive or comparable to traditional institutions. Even traditional schools are in the online education game today, with most offering extension schools to provide the flexibility of distance learning to their students.

But I’m not here to talk about… Continue
