I WATCH FACEBOOK LIVE download on my iPhone 5C, hoping it would find its way to my Android phone (seen updating above) but it didn't. Now I wonder what I should do with the new-found capability because I don't want to create another way for my friends to ignore me.
EVERY SEMESTER GOES BETTER when I tweak my workflow to do more with less time. During the spring semester of 2016, I'm going all-in with OneNote and iterative activities that leverage shared co-authoring through Office 365, the service used on our campus network at the Limerick Institute of Technology.
I'M LOOKING AT three syllabi of instruction for different cohorts of students in business and creative multimedia while noticing several conclusions that might be drawn about their perspectives on digital and contemporary marketing practice.

I have dozens of clippings inside my OneNote collections that are relevant to the space of digital and contemporary marketing practice. But I prefer to reduce that large collection to six key points, substantiated by listening to the Daily Tech News Show.
I LIKE WINDOWS 10 for several reasons and can base my opinion on running the preview edition for several weeks along with wanting to tinker with the way my operating system works. First impressions: Edge is faster than Chrome. And Cortana is better than Google Now, especially when connected to the Bluetooth head unit in our Nissan Qashqai.

Because I have a Windows 10 Mobile, I've seen big innovation with the web browser. Edge does some clever things. I like how its Hub works. I'd like to see a way to import my Lumia 1520 Hub content onto the Microsoft Surface.
I HAVE DISCOVERED a clever way to automatically tag and organize photos with OneDrive. The cleverness starts with a leading image containing block capital letters. Let me explain.

Like many other people, I let all of our handsets (Apple 5C, Lumia 1020 and Xperia Z3) automatically upload photos to OneDrive. When starting a new day's activities, I often print capital letters on a hand-made clapperboard, citing the venue or activity name on the clapperboard. Most of the time, my hand-printed letters are discoverable when I search OneDrive for them five minutes after I upload them.
The idea comes from Steve Mouldey in New Zealand.  He laid down a challenge "to share a sketch every day in May" and then use #edsketch15 when sharing on Twitter, Google+, Instagram or any other social media.
Steve cites Austin Kleon's "Show Your Work"  when encouraging "everyone to sketch something they have been reading, thinking about, trying out, observing, questioning, exploring, reflecting on, working on that day".

IT IS EASY to forget things that happen before their time and Qik's livestreaming service is one of them. We first started covering live events with Qik running on Symbian phones in 2009 and made the process part of the creative multimedia degree programme in Tipperary Institute.
AS A LONG-TIME O2 customer, I was looking for indications that O2's demise would affect Ireland in a negative way. And with the closing of the Wayra incubator, I have my first negative indicator.

I saw the news on Wayra's Ireland's website a day after returning from a whirlwind visit to ground zero of Ireland's Open Coffee movement in Limerick. It was the same day I walked through Questum, a vacant incubator down the Ring Road in Clonmel where I work.
WE GIVE ACADEMIC credit to students who prove they can create engaging content for online audiences. To guide their efforts, a portion of our curriculum unpacks the principles of fluency, authority and novelty.
I point to traditional works such as The Boys of '67 (above) and the online writing of Dave Delaney and Dervala Hanley as examples of best practice in narrative. Andrew Weist is an approachable historian. Dave Delaney runs the vibrant New Business Network Radio. Dervala Hanley is an online diarist whose ghost work has elevated major brands.
