We certainly hope you found something useful from our posts this week, which included:
- Several posts provided opportunities for readers to weigh in on many different topics—and you did! For example, George listed 5 Analog Tools I Can’t Live Without (and Why) and readers followed up with their own list; Erin discussed Five Wardrobe Essentials for the Female Academic in the Humanities and readers weighed in; Mark talked about Hacking Your Business Card and received more comments than I would have thought, and I asked about RSS Readers that you use (if you do), since the demise of Bloglines has many people scrambling for a replacement.
- We had two great guest posts this week. Amanda Watson gave us String Theory: Reflections on Knitting as a Hobby for Hacker Types and Courtney Danforth offered Disaster Planning and the Academic Career.
- Employment-related topics on people’s minds these days, so Natalie offered tips for Creating and Maintaining Your CV, while Heather talked about Keeping Track of Job Postings.
- While you’re thinking about the job market (if you are), also think about the question Nels posed: What Should You Be Enjoying About Your Life?. Seriously. And while you’re at it, remember ALT-AC.
- If you’re cultivating an online presence within social networks, Brian offers tips for Backing up Your Social Network v2.0.
- In other important topics related to the profession, Billie provided another installment of Writer’s Boot Camp: Football Edition, and Ethan proposed Solutions for Dealing with Copyrighted Materials in an Open Access Course.
- Amy got her geek on, tried out Google App Inventor, and wrote Learning to Program for Your Phone: Google App Inventor as a result.
- In standing posts, George’s open thread asked What Does Your Office Door Look Like? and Jason led us into the weekend with Weekend Reading: Clone Wars Edition.
Have a great week!Return to Top
