I’ve been entirely burried in stuff lately, so haven’t had a chance to respond to some posts about my karma experiments in teaching, or to really blog at all. I’m working on a paper that demonstrates a technique for tracking ideas flowing through a blogspace, and just when I thought I was done, I found a mistake that meant my data was bad. So, with a kind extension, I am now reworking a “toy” set of data–drawn from the list of Profs Who Blog, and redoing the analysis. At the same time, I am trying to grade all of the capstone projects, and return enough feedback that everyone can get their projects up to an acceptable level. Which leaves me no time to blog.
But I just ran across the World as a Blog, and have to blog it. Others may already know all about this, but it is a world map that makes use of GeoURL and weblogs.com to show blog postings on a world map in (sort-of) realtime. Very, very cool. Go there now. (via Frank.)
