I now post almost all my updates on joanvinallcox.ca
Hope you can enjoy my posts there.
My experience teaching university students has led me to believe that they don’t know enough about how to attribute images that they haven’t created themselves. From my own experience as both a student and a teacher, I am familiar with applications that make creative bibliographies much easier (BibMe, EasyBib, etc.). I am also familiar with what happens when it’s easy to correctly create bibliographies and citations; I (and others) are much more likely to make sure we’ve give credit where credit is due.
So I was delighted to read Judy O’Connell’s description – https://heyjude.wordpress.com/2011/04/22/greasemonkey-and-flickr-for-the-adventurous/ – of how to get images from Flickr that have Creative Commons licensing, and are totally easy to attribute.
The image above was my experiment, and, as you can see, it worked. Now it is easy to find free images in Flickr and correctly attribute them. I strongly recommend her post – https://heyjude.wordpress.com/2011/04/22/greasemonkey-and-flickr-for-the-adventurous/
I don’t know if I did it “right”. I turned off all my lights and my computer, but I didn’t unplug the microwave, or the clocks, or the tv (though it was off) but we had a candle lit and our wood stove going. most people on our street appeared to have lots of lights on, so we were maybe a bit better. It was lovely, though, to sit by the fire, with candlelight and just talk. We should do that more often.
So far my favorite discovery in Firefox 4 is the App Tabs -
Each of the little red arrows point up to a “pinned tab” or a “app tab” residing to the left of the full tabs, and remaining there after Firefox has been closed and reopened. I can quickly and easily open my calendar, my mail, my Facebook, one of my wikis or the Hunger Site I like to click on every day.
I add an app tab by right clicking (or 2 finger clicking) on the tab I want to “pin”, like so,
