Archive for March, 2009

There have been very few submissions for our Teen Tech Online Challenges event this month — actually, there have been none. 

 

HOWEVER, I choose to believe that lots of teens have tried out the Flickr toys and made hilarious/poignant/touching works of art which they have then shared with their friends and family. 

 

I do not do this because of any pesky facts or statistics — simply my general faith in creativity of teenaged-folk and my actual experiences with getting them to participate in activities and share their creations. 

 

Unless duct tape is involved.  That seems to bring them in. 

‘Cause it’s AWESOME!

 

So, because they [YOU!] did not come to me….

…I will come to them [YOU!]. 

Kinda like stalking.  But with software.

 

Here are some shiny linky-bits and fun stuff that I’ve found as I’ve skipped merrily down the road to he….um…to the park. 

I love parks.  Lots of trees.  They rock. 

Parks, that is, not necessarily the trees…unless they’re petrified…but that’s really rare….um. 

 

Right.  Here you go.  J

I guess this means that there’s joy to be found, after all. 

Awesome.  J

Always,
