    I was sick and tired, fed up with this And decided to take a drive downtown It was so very quiet and peaceful There was nobody, not a soul around I laid myself out, I was so tired and I started to dream In the morning the parking tickets were just like A flag stuck […]

    Are there still questions that haven’t been asked?

    Are there still questions that haven’t been asked?

    May 10th, 2010 - Comments Off on Are there still questions that haven’t been asked?

    Of course there are questions that haven’t been asked.  A few months ago you would not have asked, “Should I get an iPad?”   What I guarantee is that there’s at least one forum out there now dedicated to that very iPad question.  Forums are wonderful at times and a huge time suck at others.

    Yard Work with John Michael

    May 17th, 2010 - Comments Off on Yard Work with John Michael

    The featured video this week is a quick project I did with my son about cutting grass.  No script really, just followed us along as we tidied up the front and back yards.  I wanted to use some unique camera angles and try putting it all together in iMovie rather than Final Cut.  A little […]

    Time to time here at Discovery we are asked for odd pieces of information: fingerprints, headshots, resumes (thought I had the job already), bios, etc…  One such request came in a few weeks ago and it had to do with goals.  The request wanted us to, in a few sentences, state our goal as an […]

    July 27th, 2010 by Mike Bryant

    Look! Up on your screen! It’s Facebook. It’s Twitter. It’s IM. Nope, it’s Edmodo. The look in feel of the before mentioned three, Edmodo was built from the ground up as a social platform for educators and students. I only really used Edmodo extensively last week while with a group of educators as part of […]
