On the Web

I’ve been actively sharing thoughts and conducting experiments on the web for years…

Blogging: my primary blogging venue is here on BryanAlexander.org.  That’s where I explore higher education, technology, and the future.  That content also appears on Medium.

Twitter/X: I spend a lot of productive time here doing professional communication, crowdsourcing questions, learning, and sharing thoughts.

Mastodon: I’ve been trying to stir conversations on that Fediverse node.

Threads: I’m wondering what academic community will emerge there.

Bluesky: hoping to see the userbase there grow.

Video: I publish videos, mostly on YouTubeMany are recordings of the Future Trends Forum.

Other social media: LinkedIn, Facebook.

Photos: from life and travels, on Flickr and Instagram.

Books and reading: Goodreads (author and reader).  Related to that is Brittain/Graves, an open, parallel reading of two classic WWI memoirs, timed to their events.

Bookmarks: Diigo and Pinboard are where I share Web resources of interest.

Other bloggery: Infocult has been exploring the ways we fear digital technologies for nearly a decade. Draculablog is a republishing and digital storytelling project, blogging Stoker’s entire novel according to its internal calendar (noted at BoingBoing, 2005).

From the archives:

  • I was of the lead writers for NITLE‘s Techne blog from 2010 through 2014.  From 2006 through 2010 I was also the main writer for its predecessor, Liberal Education Today.  You can see an archive copy of both blogs here.
  • My wife and I coauthored a blog for several years about our off-the-grid homesteading work, Scaling the Peak.
  • The New Digital Storytelling is the archive of my first book’s blog, which lasted about one year.
  • I also wrote for the Smartmobs blog team for several years.
  • Web gaming: I organized NITLE’s prediction markets game ever since helping launch it in 2008.  Here’s one article I published in 2009, explaining it and exploring what we’ve learned.
  • I was an early adopter and energetic user of Delicious; that archive is still there, until Yahoo decides otherwise.
