School’s out Friday

It’s very apt that I use a video referencing a pet, considering the angst of the last 24hrs. Once again, a pet issue has occupied my time. Not the cat this time. No, it was the dog (again!) She wandered off sometime last afternoon and we located her this morning at the local pound. In the midst of this I attended the SLAV 50th Anniversary Dinner in Melbourne last night, and then this morning found my way back to the city again to look at new furnishing options for our now in construction school library. No rest for the wicked!

There’s been plenty I’ve wanted to blog about this week but I haven’t been able to get to this space.  I thought I’d share a few links with you of some of the things that passed my way that might prove of interest.

Google Instant shows results as you type, and it will be coming to your desktop when you conduct a search using Google in the coming months.

Rhonda Powling shared ‘Digital Footprints – your new first impression‘ via her vodpod account.

Future of Screen Technology makes some interesting projections about what may be; stretchable screens, transparent screens and e-ink displays.

Tech Heavyweights set to move music to the cloud is an article from New Scientist written by Macgregor Campbell. He writes;

“The extra bandwith and data transmission speeds of next-generation (4G) mobile networks mean it could soon be possible to listen to music streaming straight from the internet anywhere where there’s reception…”

He goes onto to query whether anyone would bother purchasing from sites like iTunes if this becomes standard practice. Interesting, and worth reading.

So much passes by me in a week, it’s hard to find time to share all the good stuff. This weak attempt might help those of you who aren’t plugged into Twitter and rely on people like me to keep you informed.

Have a great weekend. End of term fast approaching Aussie Educators!!

Enjoy. : )
