Argh. Well, I finally upgraded WordPress to 2.3.3. I’d been putting it off because I was afraid it would break things. It ended up being worse than I thought. I’m still findingUpgrading broke half my stuff!

Smallville's a repeat tonight after the mid-season cliffhanger two weeks ago. Not sure where the plot is going? Come on... Chloe is still possessed by Brainiac, Doomsday is a ravingSmallville fix

Learning 2.0: useless buzzword

What is the fascination people have with completely non-descriptive buzzwords? And buzzwords with version numbers?! What the heck is the point of that? That is completely faddish and just plain lazy.

Learning 2.0; Web 2.0 . . . I don’t have clue 1.0 what those are about without going and doing research. Something new about learning? Something new about the web? That’s the most I can get out of those.

At least older buzzwords gave you something to work with. For example, e-Learning: electronic learning — so… either learning about electronics or learning delivered electronically. Not completely descriptive, but at least something I can work with.

Some people are already talking about Learning 3.0, for crying out loud, and praising themselves for their forward thinking! (besides, what about Learning 2.5? Is 2.0 “bug-free”?) What the heck are you people talking about?!

We’re just trying to be too cute and trendy. The point of this industry is to be clear about our communications so people understand what we’re talking about. We should apply that to our internal discussions as well.
