The Prof.Digital Ed
Blogging on Communication & Technology

What with the new gig, Ed has suspended the occasional ruminations on digital media and its use in journalism and education.

Why "Digital Ed?" Double-entendere. The site is a place for discussion of digital education and my SL avatar's name is Ed. That's it.

So, what about those maps?

Good question. I've moved my minor experiments with Google Maps to a slightly less obvious, but well-labeled location.

Forget the WordPress blog. It's not happening for now. Like Blogger, it lacks a free FTP feature.

With any luck, when this exercise in mapping ends, I can go back to learning Java with my son. Scratch is fun, Alice is interesting, but straight Java might be a better place for big kids to play.

Time to learn about maps!

By now, you know the drill. Prof. G. has left the teaching biz, but can't bear to let this URL go. So what should we use it for? Playing, naturally.

This week, by complete coincidence, I happened to purchase a text on mapping, just days before the day job announced that we might have some need for a map or two -- soon. So, Prof. G. is hitting the books to learn map coding using Google Maps.

Admittedly, I've just burned part of my TV-watching night cleaning-up the old Ed site (somewhat). I'll start work on mapping tomorrow. I hope.

Oh, and I might build a new blog using WordPress. It hasn't been the same since Blogger abandoned FTP.
