The prices are very reasonable, £0.09 per minute. 50p minimum charge. So I though it was worth a punt, I uploaded my most recent microcast:
And in a couple of minutes I got this back:
This is a make you cast by Duron Johnson. Podcasting history. According to Wikipedia podcasting fruits and audio blogging from way back when. The word seemed to be coined in 2004 at Thamer just published some audio recordings of rating classer. 10 year olds who produced Rosko website. Once I figured out podcasting wasn’t a fad with me the real podcast which ran for several years starting podcasting as a meeting developed was really useful. I think Falk’s still despite the best efforts find the concept of RSS difficult. When I started publishing podcasts. I ended up reading the RSS because some of it and rating our podcast RSS by hand. The web page that showed the pod cast was just a p p pedes that Parche the RSS. This way the episodes get back said forewards way of make a broadcast. Given a new Wortle in the West or PSP. It was quite surprising this worked. But it didn’t suit enshrouding they had a reasonable understanding who catching and RSS worked. One of the interesting things was at that point the school bought and I pored. Over we edited and recorded some of each episode we did on a Mac of the audio came from the iPod’s recording feature although the odd audio quality was a remember. 64 bit more. The interface was was really great. The click wheel thing. Really easygoing pupils to use compared to any other digital recorder issue apart on the market. And that kind of iceballs speaks to the way I am doing this no into my phone. Even though we had a podcast and Macs we used on audacity then to put the Pokus again and I’m still using that day for podcasting. But mostly these make CAS amusin workflow or at least no use in fitting a recording studio. To do a wee bit and the more editing. If any to. Most Borgman and the pod casting back in was with pupils but it did make a few pod cast myself when I thought I had something to see and later on about 2007. David Nobile and they started s l f talk. This was up open in the. Who was attending the Scottish festival podcast and folks submitted audio via email to Posterous or by tagging it in a Audioboo when it was imported Posterous and a couple other makers we had.
That. For me this was vs incoming. It was just really groovy. It became a no US show it turned into the age of talk which later became radio wages talk. This is a regular cast with different guests each week. Why broadcast the main podcast. The more microcaps recently have kind of been struggling a bit and organized in guess some dipping in the Skase rules. The habits are much better at keeping this going all the time but I do enjoy talking into a microphone so I’ve started this make it cast again it’s kind of ebb forward. This would be Episode 13 but I’ve decided to stop with the numbering. After listening to Chris Aldrich. And his Maker cast Gwennie suggests that. It’s very practical. To regimented.
But mainly that’s a tool for listening. So ever saw of beautifulness make a cast with a series of three point episodes. This is the third. That point can have lost a lot of momentum. As I’ve had a bit of a virus chest infection a few weeks so a wee bit stuffy but I’m really hoping to be more regular Castano most of my pade Carson has been around education and a tech I’ve occasionally wandered off into the long grass field recording towards couping or ear birds crooking are buskers.
Battling whatever sucky or street they mostly have stuck to the early and Norbert and workin. I think they’re going to probably a little more personal. We’ve a plan behind. Waiting a finished here and atry. I hope to take one or two lessons with me and hope you enjoyed this show.
It was presented in a nice editor so you can listen and edit easily before you download. The editor highlights the words as the audio plays, you can adjust the speed. It looks ease to use but I’ve not tried that yet. At first glance the site looks nicely designed and easy to use, I’ve managed this and the blog post is 10 minutes or so before school.
When I get a moment I am going to see how long the editing process takes. But the bell is going to ringing for the last day of term in two or three minutes.
But there is something about an informal collection of independent blogs by people with a shared passion that makes for a much better micro-community experience than social networks or other online group platforms. I’ve experienced this first-hand with a couple of blogging communities I’ve participated in: an informal network of blogs by adoptive parents and the pen and paper enthusiast blog community.
I’ve had a huge amount of learning and pleasure out of both tightly bound and loose knit online communities. Doug’s post shows how of a network of Blogs owned by individuals can be better than a silo and points out the need for hashtags or other connective tissue.
Micro blogs with webmentions one part of improving the online conversation. A method or methods for discovery and group participation would be another.
I can’t recommend micro.blog enough. It has really helped me think about my online activity in many new ways. You can get involved for free and lose nothing by joining and playing.
I am really interesting listening to your Microcasts John. Chris Aldrich is right, I need to look into Huffduffer. It is something that I see mentioned here and there, but have never got around to exploring.- percolator

Thanks, microcasting, at least in the quick and dirty fashion I am using certainly cuts down on the time needed. I am listen to more and more microcasts and less longer form one.
OPTION 1: MAKE YOUR OWN If students create their own images, then they own the copyright and can use them without having to pay any money or get permission (unless the photos are of someone else…but we’ll get to that).
This can be used either as a teaching aid to help with the chronology, or printed off and laminated as a display. I have it hanging on a washing line from my ceiling and the children refer to it quite regularly. Hope it’s useful.
S3 for Poets
Might be useful if I ever want to use Amazon S3 storage.
S3 stands for Simple Storage Service.
It’s a service provided by Amazon that provides storage and it’s simple. If you look at it the right way. And it’s Tuesday. And there’s a full moon.
Simple is in the eye of the beholder. And to a programmer, like me, S3 is simple. But we forget sometimes that what seems simple to us might not seem so simple to a literate person who isn’t a programmer. For example, a poet.
But poets need to store stuff too, and Amazon provides a great service, so let’s dive in and crash through the obstacles and get to the other side, where storage is simple. Dave Winer, New York August 2012
A free, open source voxel game engine and game. Fully extendable. You are in control.
I installed that on a few PCs in school. Testing it in a lunchtime club. Looks like a free minecraft. Lots of possibilities. I have it running on one pc as a server and the class can connect from different PCs (WE have tested and got it working on mac & windows).
Behind the Facebook profile you’ve built for yourself is another one, a shadow profile, built from the inboxes and smartphones of other Facebook users. Contact information you’ve never given the network gets associated with your account, making it easier for Facebook to more completely map your social connections.
Not sure if this is incredibly creepy, just the way things are heading or both.
Bitty Data Logger is an application which can capture and chart data from a BBC micro:bit’s internal accelerometer, magnetometer and temperature sensors. It’s available for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets and for Chromebook as well. Data is, of course, transmitted from the micro:bit to your smartphone over Bluetooth so you can be some distance away from the micro:bit and…. whatever you have connected to it.
I had a quick test with an earlier version. Lots of possibilities for the classroom, wonder when I’ll get it fitted in.
one of the traditional roles of branded content is that it is a trusted source. Whether it’s Peppa Pig on children’s TV or a Disney movie, whatever one’s feelings about the industrial model of entertainment production, they are carefully produced and monitored so that kids are essentially safe watching them, and can be trusted as such. This no longer applies when brand and content are disassociated by the platform, and so known and trusted content provides a seamless gateway to unverified and potentially harmful content.
Gardner and Davis suggested that the pre-packaged resources (no matter how vast) made available to young people through the Internet is limiting exercise of the imagination because (as Marvel has shown again and again) it is easier to repackage an existing idea than come up with a new one
We tried to inspire reflection, but it often happened separate from learning. At the end of the semester, we’d ask students about their strengths and weaknesses, and what they could do differently next semester. They would write down a few ideas, but were never asked to come back to them. It became an activity that yielded little impact.
We’re quietly replacing an open web that connects and empowers with one that restricts and commoditizes people. We need to stop it.
Lots of information and links clearly spelt out. Tempted to quote all of it, but just one more.
Pay for services and content that you like, if you are able. If you like reading The Guardian, for example, consider subscribing. If your favourite YouTube channel is on Patreon, consider pledging a small amount per video. If you like services like Pinboard.in that charge in return for a useful service, buy it. There’s mutual respect when both the user and the service provider know what basic service they are buying/selling.
I’ve often posted links to this blog and on occasion whole sets of links, usually from my pinboard collection. I’ve created them in various way. The idea is somewhat inspired by other blogs and the fairly recent resurgence of bloggers posting Newsletters 1.
My favourite is Tom Woodward’s Weekly Web Harvest which is an inspiration, a fascinating and wide ranging list.
Tom produces these posts automatically in WordPress grabbing the links from pinboard.
Recently Arron Davis was blogging about Scripting an Automated Solution to the same problem. I suggested throwing pinboard into his google sheet mix. This got me experimenting with google sheets and thinking about the problem.
In previous efforts I’d been wondering about separating my thoughts from quotes in pinboard descriptions 2. Thinking about this again I though the easiest way would be to use the markdown convention of putting a greater than sign > before the quoted lines.
I made a start in google sheets but hit a snag with parsing the quotes. Sheets seemed to add some extra line breaks to the RSS feed from pinboard (or pinboard has extra line breaks in RSS). Anyway I though it would be easier to handle in AppleScript.
The script I’ve come up with does the following
Grabs the JSON from my pinboard links. (Could be a particular tag) 3
Loops through the ones for the last few days.
Creates an html list, each item consisting of the tile, linked to the original and the description.
In the description it block quotes any line starting with >
Opens BBEdit with the list ready for editing and posting (you could easily swap editors).
It would be easy to automatically post to the blog with AppleScript, but I want to be able to edit, fix typos and think a bit.
