Perishable Press: redesign no 25

Jeff Starr has just launched the twenty fifth redesign of his site Perishable Press, which he started in 2005.

According to how you count it, and when precisely in 2005 the website launched, I make that something like one full redesign every six and a half months.


Fast Veg 08: Hesburger’s juusto-veke

Today I stopped in the shops above Kaisaniemi metro for a quick juusto-veke at Hesburger. Priced at 1€, and apparently available for only a few weeks, it seemed too good an opportunity to pass up.

Especially as I had already sampled one at Rautatientori last week, and liked it.

Marinetta Ombro: a culture not a classroom

In 2002 Arcada began an experiment that aimed to develop a learning laboratory in the form of a virtual culture embodied in an online world. This essay examines how and why this was attempted; the opportunities that it offered; and the reasons why the experiment was ended.

The essay is a (slightly) revised version of a chapter included in Transforming Virtual World Learning, edited by Randy Hinrichs and Charles Wankel. The book was published in 2011 by Emerald: London.
