ZeroNet – the rabbit hole…

ZeroNet - Decentralised hosting

Doug Belshaw has been experimenting recently with ZeroNet, a way of hosting a website, distributed amongst peers (using BitTorrent and BitCoin technologies). Essentially, such a website would become decentralised, with no single point of hosting, should someone want to target it in order to shut it down, or deny others access by overloading the server. Resilient hosting…

Computing Badges

Earning a coding badge

Desired Experience: Swift Or Objective C, JavaScript, Cordova, Angular…

I’ve always thought that one of the most obvious areas ripe for micro-credentials is Computing skills. It’s a pretty fresh sector, so school credentials are miles behind. However, the speed at which it’s changing also lends itself to recognising small chunks of competency. Most skills in this sector are experientially learned, as opposed to formally taught, but solid experience holds the real value – and forms the headline of most job applications. Angular? Oh yes I’m awesome at angular… Being able to authenticate those skills is, however, quite another matter.

Doug Belshaw was the first to enlighten me on this self publishing principle, and encourage me to set up my own site, and publish out from there. Every drawing should have it’s own canonical link he’d say. Unambiguous words, and I’m glad I listened. This rang true again when working with Jim Groom and Reclaim Hosting on the articulation of a Domain of One’s Own, in a learning context. But the immediate feedback of social media can make one (me) a touch lazy. Reading Kin Lane’s post on the Personal API, I’m reminded of just how important this principle is to those who would publish…

Some days, it’s just not happening. So I remind myself of the process. 1. Go to trello. 2. Organise the things 3. Start at the top – half an hour later I’ve fallen down a twitter shaped rabbit hole…

There’s a bunch of skills needed for future digital workers (and me). How will we ever get stuff done?

How I work has changed massively over the past ten years. Okay, so now I draw pictures, whereas I used to write programs – or lead others to write programs. Probably the biggest change I’ve had is being exposed to Mozilla’s way of working. They corale creative communities using some very clever practices and technologies. And right at the centre of this deeper magic community alignment

A beach is a place of wonder – I’m never happier than when on a beach. An endless supply of creative materials, with a landscape that continually changes. Task #1 – let’s find out what the tide is doing, and how fast it’s doing it…
If you haven’t come across the TIDE podcast, it’s well worth a listen. This week it celebrates it’s fiftieth episode, and long may it continue.
