I have a real problem with my aggregator. It’s got these soft sticky places in it. I’m reading along, and all of a sudden, I’m stuck on one post or article that’s got me reeling. I’m researching the topic, figuring out how it applies — how it can be applied, and then, just as suddenly, I’m out of time. Got to go do something else. I’ve spent a half hour, and only covered three entries.
It’s one of many reasons why this one sailed way under my radar, a NECC button design contest. As Dangerously Irrelevant writer, Scott Mcleod wrote on April 18,
If you’ve been reading Speed of Creativity lately, you probably noticed Wesley Fryer’s nifty phrase: I’m here for the learning revolution.
He’s said it here and here. So Scott and Wes teamed up to sponsor a contest to design a Learning Revolution button, that we can wear at NECC 2008. Scott announced the contest here, and after much sifting, ranking, and deliberation, the winner has just been announced.
It’s Bill Moseley, architect of this very cool web site. Bill wins, and I quote, “..everlasting fame, a CASTLE mug, one of the buttons, a t-shirt with his design on it, a picture of a monster from my 4-year-old (Colin’s the one with the curly hair), and a copy of Here Comes Everybody by Clay Shirky.”
So, Scott and Wes are printing up a few hundred buttons and will be giving them out, started at the EduBloggerCon on Saturday, June 28. Thanks, Bill, and Scott and Wes.
