HT @OnlineCrsLady for #MLK Day 2015 edition #EdBlogNet

…media, 2014 review, 2015 intentions, community colleges, CFHE Gathering, #NAWD, COCAL Updates and other posts can wait. Today we honor a human rights and social justice activism icon and model. Laura Gibbs writes in Online Course Announcements: Martin Luther King Day edition
I've created some posters with AutoMotivator in honor of Martin Luther King Day! You can see a random poster here each time the page reloads, and below is a Flickr album [slide show]. Then there is a list of all the quotations, with a link to the poster for each quotation along with image information.

Test #fail for the #EdBlogNet html clip

…embed code to display and share feeds for EduBloggers (FB) blogs from InoReader. I'm getting a "Stream not found" message. Oops. Back to the drawing board...or rather looking for help...tomorrow, that proverbial "another day" though, not tonight.

This is one of several Precarious Faculty Information Network projects underway ~ what I have been doing instead of blogging. So far I have 127 EduBlogger Network (WP) blog feeds in the reader folder and OPML file bundle. There are 200 bloggers in the network, so I still have a ways to go. I am also bookmarking EdBlogNet blogs on Diggo as I go ~ 161 of those as of this afternoon's session. Tentative plans include tagging individual posts #EdBlogPost to join the #PFR linkroll in the Reading Room. Viewer clip pages on other PF Network blogs is another possibility.

The other major project involves doing the same for adjunct blogs, with 121 in the reader and bundled. The adjunct blog collection is more scattered. Many links are already on the blogroll here, some are bookmarked in Diigo and others, bookmarked earlier, are on Delicious. This is just the start of reorganizing the entire precarious faculty information network.

What comes next? I haven't the foggiest but will let you know as soon as I do, but first I have to find that damned stream. Finishing that late December post about 2014 bloggery is on hold. Here's the short version: counting post in all the adjunct blogs, I passed my 2012 post record around the middle of 2014.

Oh, and by the way, in case you missed the Creative Commons license at the bottom of every page ~ that means all these resources are here for anyone to use and share.

#MLA4Adjuncts—searching #MLA15 program for #adjunct relevance

…tag sounds like a candidate for extreme oxymoron. This won't be as elaborate as the #MLA14 post ~ just the naked program search results. There's more on #MLA15's  MLA Convention and MLA Commons pages.

Elsewhere: #subcon2015 is on, with its strongest (imo) offerings today (program); #Ferguson2MLA protest is Friday; and Marc Bousquet dba #mlademocracy started an MLA $23.01 Campaign protesting. I'm especially looking forward to watching Keith Hoeller's MLA Subconference presentation with Jack Longmate and Frank Cosco on contingent faculty organizing ~ hope MLA Subcon livestream sound is better today. Just remember though, it's the free one that feeds you too (if you can afford to get to Vancouver). The MLA, which could afford high quality livestreaming for sessions, does not. Ever wonder why?

Anyway, back to the #MLA4Adjuncts version of the MLA 2015 Program:
