This is by way of an experiment for me; I’m new to blogging. Nicholas Urfé’s inexplicably fancy trash and my friend Paul’s iPaulo got me thinking about blogs as ways of creating communities, and that led me to think about blogs in instructional technology, serious and otherwise.
I’ve had my digitalmedievalist site for years, but I find I’m not keeping it updated the way I’d like. So I thought I’d try blogging as a quick way to do small updates. For instance, I’d like to point out that the Dublin Institute, famous for physics and Irish scholarship, has put high quality scanned images of Lebor na hUidre/The Book of the Dun Cow on line. This is really cool, and it joins the “other” major Irish manuscript, Lebar Na Núachongbála/The Book of Leinster, both digitized as part of the ISOS or Irish Script On Screen project.
