    Tags: Brainstorming Fuller Directory   

    Want to help me brainstorm new possible names for the Alumni Directory? Would be nice to brand it with “the QUAD”

    “the FIELD”
    “the NETWORK”
    “the FULLER CARTEL”

      I don’t hate Network or “Alumni Network”

      I typed in: a, Fuller, 1, 2

      So this changes according to caps and/or commas apparently

      Fuller got moved up because it’s been used before. It’s pulling up tags that are used more than once on the assumption that those would be more interesting to others.

      I think that’s right.

      Did you know that the tags flip order in which they were typed when they are posted?

      • Matt Lumpkin 5:08 pm on April 30, 2013 Permalink | Reply

        I’m not seeing that. Can you give an example?

    This quarter I’m learning how *not* to go nuts when my children make more noise than I want them to.

      In that case there’s a seminar coming up on writing grants to raise funds for things like… films and ministry projects.

      #Writing Grants & Raising Money

      Do you have to raise money for your ministry or organization? Learn from Dr. Scott Cormode as he gives a presentation and engages questions regarding fundraising strategies.

      Tuesday, May 7
      12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
      250 N. Madison, 2nd Floor Conference Room

      This short seminar will discuss specific questions about how to effectively write foundation grant proposals as well as larger questions about how to raise money for ministries and non-profits. Light snacks will be provided.

        Yes, I’m helping organize and video record it 🙂

        And hoping to raise millions of $ because of it!

        • mattlumpkin 11:23 pm on April 29, 2013 Permalink

          I was really excited to see that hit my inbox. Good work.

    “They were playing the nihilists Arkady and Bazarov in Turgenev’s Fathers and Sons,” explained scholar Juan Cole, citing an 1862 Russian novel to explain the motives of a criminal whose Twitter account was full of American rap lyrics. One does not recall such use of literary devices to ascertain the motives of less exotic perpetrators, but who knows? Perhaps some ambitious analyst is plumbing the works of Faulkner to shed light on that Mississippi Elvis impersonator who tried to send ricin to Obama.

    This TED talk gets at the opportunity we have to use tech to augment and accellerate our natural abilities and the importance of removing interface friction for that to function.

      Love the presentation graphics – and the content too 🙂

        Guess it didn’t read my ID

        I like it too. This piece gets at why user experience is, to me, one of the most exciting places to be working in IT. Removing that friction.

    The Internet enabled a redneck partier I once knew to develop an interest in, purchase & learn to use a set of turntables to DJ for friends.

    Similarly, it will enable a generation to learn about and find their ways into jobs and careers no one in their communities could imagine.

    It will still be schools who help bridge the spark of a new path w/the means to follow it, but they will have to meet their students online.
