2015 EDU: PEOPLE: New way to organize. About nursing. What if it were about education?

New way to organize.  About nursing. 
What if it were about education? 
We need new solutions based on ecological, human-friendly relationships. We need new organizational structures focused on meaningfulness and new economic principles. With a new consciousness we can improve quality of life for vulnerable citizens at a lower cost.

We are living in a change of eras. Our current models of energy, finance and healthcare are not sustainable for the future. We need new solutions based on ecological, human-friendly relationships. We need new organizational structures focused on meaningfulness and new economic principles. With a new consciousness we can improve quality of life for vulnerable citizens at a lower cost.

2015 PROMO: PEOPLE: SEO tips for promoting your virtual community (Not how to cheat with SEO)

SEO tips for promoting your virtual community.
(Not how to cheat with SEO)
Some suggestions on how to get more interested visitors to the website about your virtual community.
Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine's "natural" or un-paid ("organic") search results. In general, the earlier (or higher ranked on the search results page), and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine's users. -- Wikipedia 

This is not about kinky sex

Use SEO with attention to the reader, not to the search engines.  You don't care about just getting visitors, you care about getting visitors who will be interested in what you have to offer.

2015 ART: HOBBIES: Model cars of Second Life

Model cars of Second Life.
Linden Endowment for the Arts 
Lots of kids build model cars.  Some grown-ups collect model cars--they usually don't have time to build the cars.  Too busy.  Or they have forgotten how to play.  The people of Second Life build and collect.  No mess.  No workroom. And besides the people of Second Life have remembered how to play.
Bonnie and Clyde?

2015 HG: Testing HG addresses and address forms. Failure is not forever

Testing HG addresses and address forms.  
 Failure is not forever
HG travel has a bothersome number of fault modes.  To be a happy hypergrid traveler, you need a fair amount of Fault Tolerance.  The good side is that Fault Tolerance is a useful life skill.  Here is your chance to practice it.

Here is what I do then

  • After the first failure, try again.  
  • I find that about half the time the second try works.
  • I suspect too quick a timeout on the request 
  • If it fails again, I go to the Trouble mode (See below)

2015 PEOPLE: Housebound does not mean home alone--voluntarily housebound in virtual worlds

Housebound does not mean home alone.
The web is pages.  Virtual worlds are people.
Voluntarily housebound?  Yes.  By choice.  Oh, I walk outside on occasion, when the weather is nice.  And I go out once in a while for medical attention.  And I chat from time to time with the people in old folks home where I live.  But those people are old.  Most of my friends are online in the virtual worlds where I also live.  The are younger.  
Dancing and carousing
  • In a virtual world you don't need dancing lessons.  You just need an animation.
Background: I am 85 years old.  I live in a retirement facility.  They provide my meals so I don't have to do grocery shopping.  I can order anything else I need from Amazon, so I don't leave my computer when I go shopping.  I gave away my car several years ago because it was costing me more in time than it was worth to me.  I really needed it less than once a month, but I had to drive it once a week to be confident it would start.  Now, if I ever want to go anywhere, I can call a cab.  For what I was paying to support my car, I could pay a lot of cab fares.

I am telling about this because lots of people are housebound, not voluntarily.  They could be enjoying what I am enjoying.
