Post Title: The Scoop on MOOCs | HASTAC
By VanessaVaile, Feed Name: MOOC Madness
Preview: As if there weren’t already too many talking and writing and blogging and tweeting about MOOCs (not too mention seeing pie in the sky and dreaming not of sugar plums but Venture Capitalists). Seemingly natural partners with a clear elective affinity, HASTAC (Humanities, Arts, Sciences and Technology Advanced Collaboratory) and “haystackers” had been regarding MOOCs with a [...]

Post Title: Enemies of Creativity
By cyeager, Feed Name: CMC11
Preview: Nike ran an ad campaign some time ago and the tag line became a buzz word .. "just do it". It sounds so simple, so easy ... just do it, whatever "it" may be.Our parents/elders, for the most part, exhorted us to "think before you act", in a well meaning attempt to keep us out of danger.

Title: "The Principal of Change"...
Preview: Hi All,I'm a lurker in this course and have been reading all your blog posts. I thoroughly enjoyed this post on "The Principal of Change," especially The Cup Song.

Title: Enemies of Creativity
Preview: Guess sometime just doing it works out though the slogan suggests a level of mindlessness in practice that would hardly pay off in anything useful. Applied to the purchase of expensive shoes we might want a more complete theory of action that runs like "just pay for the shoes first and THEN do it to your foolish heart's content." Great article on the enemy of creativity. I'm not sure .......

Title: Re: How can I show the best of myself?
Preview: Wearing sunglasses indoors affects my mood. I misplaced my glasses and tried work at the computer wearing sunglasses. When I put them on, my mood slowing grew sadder. When I took them off, my mood got brighter. I decided to just sit there putting them on and taking them off and got consistent results so now I only wear sunglasses outside if it's really bright out and in the car. I ....
