Twitter: Not only a way to communicate but make networking

I had received a lot a buzz about Twitter (now also in your cell phone or mobile). But I hve discovered is that many twitters also have their personal pages or blogs and you come to meet very interesting people or facts. This is the case ( and I am not for any interchange of links or being paid) of Shake Well Before Use which I've found interesting, funny, smart and sometimes ruthless. But I like the most is the way she handles the technological issues.

You better head upt to Ariel Waldman page and check out her posts about Technology or healthy sex.

Blogger: Things I Haven't Written in a While

I am being a little bit lazy in about the tech title of this blog I've concentrated in educational and social matters but today I've decided to move a little to the new Blogger which has been buzzing lately not only because of its final changes but also the authorities in this field.

One of my favorites is always Beautiful Beta. In this occasion for those following his work, shows how to display more than 100 posts (an update to this tweak) But not only that, Hans has created a Wiki where he compiles all his experiences, tips and tricks about Blogger.

Freshblog is not updating so frequently as before but the last week he wrote a long update about the presentation and use of Yahoo pipes in sidebar of your blogs. If you check his blogroll you will find a neat organization of those links and of course much information related to blogtech and webtech.

Once in the top list of my readings (today is he's not posting steadily, PurpleMoggy has developed a calendar widget which looks interesting if you like to browse your archives through a calendar of if you were thinking to switch to Wordpress just because of a calendar!

I am not sure how many visitors understand programming or web development but for those who really do you better step up in Ecmanaut' blog. Here, he tells you how to scope user scripts to HTML pages.

Our mentor and designer Ramani has not being writing steadily either but last weeks he asked for an update to his Neo Template. I've implemented withouth harsh and I hope everyone who's being using it already updated their Neo.

Phydeaux who takes the credit for our label cloud has released a post where he discuses the idea of Heading Image Uploading. No more really bad tutorials on how to get an image in your header, let Blogger do the work (ok I'm just hoping that means no more really bad tutorials, I suspect they will continue).

And Consumer Experience just jumped in to let us know that PNG and GIF uploads slow down your blog. She says: "If you upload a pic or photo to Blogger via the post editor, Blogger creates a thumbnail picture of your original, which is then displayed in your blog post." Awkward because what you've got in the New Blogger actually increases the file size of the thumbnail displayed on your blog, to bigger than the original file's size - and even bigger than the full size versions!

Don't cry. Just think, think...!

Today before you think of saying an unkind word - Think of someone who can't speak.
Before you complain about the taste of your food - Think of someone who has nothing to eat.
Before you complain about your husband or wife - Think of someone who's crying out to God for a companion.
Today before you complain about life - Think of someone who went too early to heaven.
Before you complain about your children - Think of someone who desires children but they're barren.
Before you argue about your dirty house, someone didn't clean or sweep - Think of the people who are living in the streets.
Before whining about the distance you drive - Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.
And when you are tired and complain about your job - Think of the unemployed, the disabled and those who wished they had your job.
But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another remember that not one of us are without sin and we all answer to one maker.
And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile on your face and thank God you're alive and still around.
Life is a gift, live it, enjoy it, celebrate it, and fulfill it.


Pedagogy of the Oppressed

It's almost forty years ago that this book was written by one of the most influential theorist of education, Paulo Freire. This next May the 2nd. makes 10 years that Freire passed away and Eduvlogs[ES] wants to tribute (TonNet, as well) this great critical thinker.

You might be able to browse some additional information in Technorati but in the mean time remember we are not talking of a educator such as Hilda Taba or Ralph Tyler. The context of this Brazilian educator is more centered with critical thinking same as Henry Giroux and Peter McLaren

I might want to suggest we all educators with this vision of the education establishment begin to write in such an Ideal Educational Blog. I am open to suggestion and if you want this blog can be your space to star it off.

Just in case you've forgotten what the love is all about

Presentation of GI Jennie:

"Love is giving someone the power to destroy you, but trusting them not to!"

Much Philosophy behind the short sentences!

Same as Jess says:

"Turns out it's not where, but who you're with that really matters"

Ecuador Seeks Compensation to Continue with Amazon Oil Exploitation

Ecuador is a country of 13 million people, more than half of whom live in poverty. The government claims that oil revenue is necessary to meet the development needs of its citizens. These revenues account for around 40 percent of the federal budget every year.

Ecuador is burdened with over 15 billion dollars of external debt, including substantial amounts owed to the World Bank and Inter-American Development Bank - more than enough to cover Ecuador's ITT compensation offer.

'Ecuador doesn't ask for charity', has said President Correa, 'but does ask that the international community share in the sacrifice and compensates us with at least half of what our country would receive, in recognition of the environmental benefits that would be generated by keeping this oil underground.'

It's time to pay attention to personalities such as Dr. Matt Finer of Save America's Forests, a conservation group based in Washington, DC. who said: 'What are urgently needed now are viable proposals from the international community to present to President Correa.'
