Why I Gave Up Google Glass: form, function, and fashion

By Brian Mathews. I’ve enjoyed using Google Glass. It connected me with faculty in new ways—from pedagogical experiments and brainstorming about research and instructional needs, to serving on panel discussions and informal talks about applying technology in new waysMore...

What the Head of Hiring at Google Doesn’t Understand About Skills

By  . Try as I might, I just can’t seem to let it go. When Laszlo Bock, of Google, tells the columnist Thomas Friedman, ofThe New York Times, that he would prefer to hire a computer-science student with B grades over an A-plus student who studies English, it doesn’t surprise me. Google is in the business of computing, after allMore...

In Defense of Trigger Warnings

By . Trigger warnings are in the news. College students—mostly young women—are requesting pre-emptive warnings about material that might upset them, that might, in some cases, cause symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. It’s no surprise, then, that the backlash has begun. Writers and commenters—the majority appear to be male—are decrying this latest surrender to political correctnessMore...

Tom Bihn’s Travel Bags for Conference Travel

http://chronicle.com/img/photos/biz/profhacker-45.pngBy . When I moved to the Boston area and began commuting two years ago, I asked ProfHacker readers to recommend a good backpack for commuting. So many recommended Tom Bihn backpacks that I got one, and I loved it. So when I was preparing for a series of work-related trips this spring, I wanted to test out Tom Bihn’s travel bags for these 2- or 3-night trips. The company provided me with an Aeronauta Tri-Star, and a Pilot bag so I could test them all, along with a set of packing cubes and pouches to keep them organizedMore...

Open Thread Wednesday: Twitter Tools for Summer

http://chronicle.com/img/photos/biz/profhacker-45.pngBy . It’s no secret that many of us at ProfHacker are big fans of Twitter, using it for everything from conferences to classes to bot-making to, yes, posting pictures of our cats. Several ProfHackers have shared their favorite tools and hacks for working with Twitter: Natalie gathered several of them in her recent retrospective post. This last weekend served as another reminder that Twitter can be a powerful place to experience a simultaneous happening, as the fallout from Friday’s shooting at the University of California Santa Barbara spawned several vast online debates, including the confessional and confrontational #YesAllWomen hashtag. Coming in the wake of declarations that Twitter is “dead”, such moments provide further motivation to me for using TwitterMore...

Are We Solving the Right Problems?

http://chronicle.com/img/photos/biz/profhacker-45.pngBy . Last week, our technology program brought in a trainer on Agile development methods, which is really an alternative approach to project management that’s particularly brought to bear on large software productions. One compelling aspect of the agile approach is the attempt to reconcile what every member of a team brings to a vision–including the difference between what a customer says and thinks they want, and what they really wantMore...

The Fossilized Book

http://chronicle.com/img/photos/biz/linguafranca-45.pngBy . Books are no longer books, at least not what was meant by book a generation ago: an extensive work made of letters that build sentences shaped into paragraphs, written on pages glued together and bound in covers. That, at least, still describes the yellowish copy I bought in 1985, on the New York City streets, of Fahrenheit 451, which sits tightly in my personal libraryMore...

Questionable Style in the News

http://chronicle.com/img/photos/biz/linguafranca-45.pngBy An article about the benefits of standing desks in last week’s Washington Post highlighted a problem, and I’m not talking about the problem of sitting too long in a chair at the office (although this is a real problem). I’m talking about a different kind of chairMore...
