Predictions for 2009
eLearn Magazine's predictions for 2009 are out, including a submission from myself (basically a summary of part of my recent post). Ignatia also posts some predictions links. John Moravec posts five predictions (and more). Clay Shirky predicts the year ahead in media. I'm almost done this year-end stuff, I promise.

Blogging Corner Carnival
Almost no information leaks from the EdNA Groups garden these days, but we read here that Kerrie Smith and Alison Hall will be running a blogging Carnival on EdNA Groups, "a place for bloggers, would-be bloggers, and blogging mentors." They are working with a site set up at edublogs (which wasn't responding when I tried it this evening). Kerrie Smith, You Are Never Alone, January 12, 2009 [Link] [Tags: , , ] [Comment]

Microsoft Tag a Not so New Tool for Marketing

Thanks, Microsoft, for elevating the definition of 'useless' to a new level. Michael Specht, Weblog, January 12, 2009 [Link] [Tags: ] [Comment]

The 20 Most Practical and Creative Uses of jQuery
I've been scouting around for some good Javascript to create an intuitive RSS feed editor (to create serialized feeds - I can write the backend, but I want something elegant for the frontend). Haven't found anything yet, surprisingly. But I'm getting a good look at the capabilities of things like jQuery, Google Web Toolkit and MooTools. And sites like this five practical uses of jQuery, Coda (wow), 10 smart tips for manipulating Javascript content. Drew Douglass, Nettuts, January 12, 2009 [Link] [Tags: , ] [Comment]

RIAA Just Can't Seem To Stop The Momentum On Filing Those Lawsuits
As Michael Masnick says, "Apparently, the RIAA continues to have trouble with some rather basic facts. Saying you're not suing individuals anymore would be a lot more believable if, you know, you stopped suing individuals." Michael Masnick, TechDirt, January 12, 2009 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]
