Shake ya Hass*, but watch yourself…

Our instagram account was removed for breaking the nudity guideline. We don’t think this is fair, but the instagods have spoken. Because we’re rebels, we’ve made a new one. Go follow us at http://instagram.com/visual.thinkery. For your viewing pleasure is the offending image, make sure grandma doesn’t catch you looking at this tasty piece of Hass*…

* Apologies for the horrific puns, couldn’t resist.

Why digital credentials?

In my opinion, interviews are a very poor way of judging whether someone will perform well in a job. Some people have figured out the game – how to interview well. And why not? But standing in the shoes of as employer, I want to employ the person who’ll do the best job (and even that’s not so straightforward to define).

I once employed a young person on his ability to solve a Rubik’s cube. There were other factors too of course, but I took his Rubik’s cube abilities as clues to various aspects of his character, as I can also solve a Rubik’s cube – but nowhere near as fast as him. However, this is exactly the sort of thing that you would never emerge in an interview.

So when it comes to digital credentials, who knows what value someone else see in them?

Badge Pathways

Here’s some thinking on using visual metaphors for badge pathways as a result of some remote workshop thinkery at ISTE.

The nation speaks

I think we’ll be trying to figure out what the nation actually said for many years to come. That’s if anyone cares to listen…

Lies…

After the UK voted to leave the EU, I tuned in to a BBC station, where a woman (who had voted to leave) was giving comfort to those that had voted to stay. “At the very least, it’s a great day for democracy.” If I was democracy, I’d be pretty pissed off – getting trotted out once in a generation only to be patted on the back, and put back in the political cupboard. It’s been a great day for lies and liars.

All lies and jest…

In order to be a leader, you need to acquire a following. In order to acquire a common following, you need a common enemy. These people have made the EU the common enemy. But the EU can’t be the enemy – as we are part of the EU, and therefore it is what we are prepared to make it.

Hatred is the enemy. Racism is the enemy. Empire is the enemy.

We should have listened to our young people.
