Entry 097 for Sunday July 19, 2020

The core questions:

Credit goes to Ben and readers of his blog for these “Four Questions” and the five stretch questions.

  1. What did you do today? Cooked a sirloin tip (picaña in Spanish); built out infrastructure for the upcoming #OpenFlip MOOC; connected with two #TC1028 students to apply their exams that they missed on Tuesday; house cleaning; finished up the audio book “Mr. Hockey: My Story” by Gordie Howe.
  2. What did you enjoy? I really did like the narration and the story as told by Gordie Howe. I have a large backlog of audio books and digital books to catch up on so I am trying to cut down on my podcast feed to include more reading in audio/ebook/physical formats.
  3. What did you find difficult? I struggled with finding a good mailing list setup for #OpenFlip. The main MailChimp interface is confusing and too focused on analytics and marketing campaigns. I just need a simple way for people to register and receive information from me. TinyLetter (by MailChimp) to the rescue.
  4. What has changed? I have been announcing the “next version” of OpenFlip since 2017. It is finally happening and in both English and Spanish groups.
