What’s Up Wednesdays: School Kids, Freelance Conferences, and Banned BooksOctober 6th, 2010 by Michael Kwan
We start out by visiting Ray Ebersole. He has been working in the education field for a number of years, but he finds that he is taking on a totally different perspective now that his daughter is starting kindergarten this year. It’s always worthwhile to see things through another set of eyes.
Next up, we have a post from Raul Pacheco on the future of his personal blog. Most of us know Raul for his liveblogging and social media exploits, but that is not his primary career! His “day job,” as it were, will be taking up more time soon so his personal blog will have to take a back seat.
Over at Freelance Switch, we find Jason Finnerty giving a brief highlight to Freelance Camp Vancouver. As you may recall, the camp was held a few months ago and I was a featured speaker there. Just because you work for yourself as a freelancer doesn’t mean you need to work by yourself!
Over in Pittsburgh, Bob Buskirk is not only excited about the prospects of the upcoming NHL hockey season; he’s also pretty happy about his first Consol Energy Center experience. It’s the new home of the Penguins, having left behind the severely aging Igloo of old. Yup, Sid the Kid has something new and shiny.
Closing out this speedlink is Violet Blue. She takes a moment to talk about some banned books in 2010. The American Library Association fights against these attempted banishment of books across the United States, stressing the “essentialness of intellectual freedom.” What’s your view on censorship?
