A list of Montreal academic blogs

Michael Lenczner has launched a barnraising effort around the idea of listing Montreal academics who blog (and non-academics who blog academically). When he first told me about his intentions, I wasn't too optimistic (What do you mean? All three of us?), but I went ahead and contributed a few names and this list has grown, baby - in just a few days.

I did a little browsing and I've discovered a few that I like. For instance, Tamara Paradis blogs at i-space about digital culture, and André Nantel (who, incidentally, works for the National Research Council just as I do!) does kickass photologging at Digital Apoptosis. Not very academic, but very interesting to look at!

By all means add yourself if you fit in there! (And if you're not in/from Montreal, you can list yourself on this research blogs page)

Oh, and speaking of Mike, the Globe and Mail just ran a good profile piece on community wifi project Île sans Fil.

Update: The YulAcademics are now on (Webfeed here, in case you want to track additions.)

Weblogs at University of PEI

The amazing Mark Hemphill has been busy over at the University of Prince Edward Island, teaming up with the folks at GoodBasic to put together a (Drupal-based) weblog offering for everyone with a UPEI email address. This postWeblogs_v gives an overview of the project.
"In the weeks since we've enabled the service over 200 members have joined and taken to creating content.  A range of dynamic discussion instantly developed and groups, some of which represent existing organizations, and some of which have sprouted, natively, from the online community, have emerged."

Infinite room

(le français suit) Dozens of people contributed to the single wiki page we had for the yet-to-be-given-a-definitive-name Montreal conference, and after 140-odd revisions it was getting crowded, so Patrick Tanguay (who runs the Montreal weblog portal) put up a standalone wiki to support the preparation efforts. Now I believe we're good to go to discuss organization, themes, and anything else worth talking about! Thanks Patrick!

(You can track changes in the wiki using this webfeed.)

Des douzaines de personnes sont venues modifier la page wiki dont nous disposions pour la conférence en préparation à Montréal, et après environ 140 révisions il était apparent que l'on manquait d'espace. Patrick Tanguay (qui s'occupe depuis un moment du portail carnets YULblog) a mis en place un wiki entier pour faciliter les efforts de préparation. Nous voilà en bonne posture pour discuter organisation, thèmes, bière et autres questions cruciales! Merci Patrick!

(Tenez-vous au courant des changements sur le wiki à l'aide de ce fil XML.)

Small pieces of music, loosely joined

Webjay heartSince my last post, Webjay went down, and I missed it. Then it went back up, thanks to a week of diligent (no, heroic!) efforts by Lucas.

What's more, thanks to the podcasting craze, Webjay's playlist webfeeds have regained their enclosure component. While I don't care too much about putting mp3s on a mobile device (I've yet to lay hands on one), this has provided me with the last moving part I needed to cobble together the integrated music publication-subscription loop I'd been dreaming about.

Outline of how it goes:
  • I subscribe to my favorite playlists and other mp3 feeds in Bloglines, putting all of them in this convenient folder;
  • In the morning, I load the folder above to get a display of links to recent songs from those sources and proceed to click Alf's amazing mp3-link-scraping bookmarklet;
  • I then automagically receive a playlist of that new content, which my trusty Winamp starts playing, shuffle or straight;
  • Through the day, when I hear something I like, I click my Webjay This bookmarklet and, after a confirmation click, the song that's playing automagically gets published to my musiclog. Voilà!
