open thinking
"Open Thinking and Digital Pedagogy is the personal and professional blogging space of Dr. Alec Couros, a professor of educational technology and media at the Faculty of Education, University of Regina. I created this space in early 2004 as I pondered the educational uses of blogging and podcasting. This space is a growing collection of personal reflections and resources related to teaching and learning, democratic media, critical media literacy, digital citizenship, openness, and social justice."

I Love You but You're Going to Hell
"The goal is not to convert people to the other side. Rather, it is to overcome the mutual bewilderment and demonization that can happen when each side hears the arguments of the other. It is to get over the kind of assumption that anyone who holds those other positions must be stupid or evil."

The Information Structuralist
I am Maxim Raginsky, an Assistant Research Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Duke University. I am an information theorist with a strong interest in problems that fall outside the “traditional” digital-communications-oriented purview of information theory — such as decision-making (both automated and human), statistical learning and inference, or control. I am also interested in the numerous links between information theory and physics, which is not surprising, considering the fact that my doctoral work was on quantum information theory. The chief purpose of this blog is to share my (almost always) misguided thoughts and musings on these subjects, thus (hopefully) becoming more enlightened in the process. Or not.

Transition Culture
The convergence of challenges, most particularly global warming and peak oil, have brought us to a point where we are profoundly challenged to act. We are surrounded by what poet Gary Snyder, in his classic poem For the Children called “The rising hills, the slopes, of statistics” and by individuals telling us that this means the end, that we have gone too far, that it is inevitable that life as we know it will collapse catastrophically and very soon.
