Friday Tabs

I’m notorious for having 50 tabs open in my browser.  I do sometimes collect these things into Diigo or elsewhere, but often they just sit in my browser, and I visit them again later.  So I thought I’d collect them here, and you can all peer into my private browser life.

And that’s just my home computer . . .

  1. This is so reassuring! When my colleagues glance over my shoulder and see so many tabs open they tend to respond in either shock or horror – or possibly both.

    I keep things open because I want to do something with them. Maybe read it more fully, maybe write a blog post about it, maybe figure out how it works in my classroom. Now this tab will stay open so I can follow the comments for a bit!

  2. Here’s my full disclosure of current tabs open:
    * Gmail
    * ACM Skillport (Skillsoft course) page with some courses on SAP
    * Gmail attachment PDF of my daughter’s upcoming flight plans
    * IEEE CS CSDP page
    * YouTube of Megan Smith’s keynote at an IEEE Women in Engineering event
    * IEEE Communications Society March 2013 Publications Digest
    * Microsoft Virtual Academy
    * Google Reader
    * 🙂
    * Salon article about Sylvia Todd
    * Kimberly Clark rebate
    * Uncommon Goods for The Storymatic Game
    * Google Calendar
    * Planarity
    * GoodReads
    * Sherwood Smith’s What are you Reading Wednesday post in the Book View Cafe
    * Winshark network monitoring software page
    * Facebook

  3. Then there are those of us who cannot have anything open. Of course when I want it again I have to go find the stupid thing again. Desk top OCD may be neat but it is not a real good habit.

  4. On the LiveCode. I have spent about 4 hours with LiveCode over the last two days. I thought it might be an interesting direction for my advanced kids. After having spent those four hours trying to figure out how to make a simple adding machine program (add two user entered numbers and put the solution in a text box) I gave up. I simply do not have time to wade through the documentation written for people with high level coding experience. LiveCode has great potential but until a book for beginners is produced the average teacher would not have the time to deal with it.

  5. I got it to install and work. I even got the “Hello World” to work. But they go from “Hello World” to “Better have 20 year programming experience” in the docs I could find. This language is a whole new paradigm to me so it would require some well written docs to tempt me in its direction. I am find through experience most companies do not understand “well written”.
