ACPA + Twitter on the BreakDrink podcast

1 comment

The main topic for today’s BreakDrink podcast was the potential unification of ACPA and NASPA. ACPA President, Dr. Tom Jackson, Jr. was on the podcast to talk about his thought’s regarding the unification process.

I had asked a question on the BreakDrink blog in preparation for today’s conversation. Jeff Jackson, host of the show, asked my question about how/if Dr. Jackson had plans for using Twitter at next month’s ACPA Annual Convention. I decided to call in to the show and was able to use the Skype link on Blog Talk Radio to call into the show.

I begin talking about the Social Media session that I’m co-presenting at ACPA 2010, Twitter, #ACPA10, the ACPA 2010 TweetUp, and #SAChat at about 28:25 in the podcast.

Please follow @ACPAPrez. Dr. Jackson readily agreed to use Twitter during the ACPA Annual Convention and I think that it would be great if he had a huge following of Student Affairs Twitterati.

Morality and Self-deception

Writer Ursula K. Le Guin and Oregon State University philosophy professor Lani Roberts presented an interactive discussion exploring morality and self-deception–including our ideals of morality, how we deceive ourselves individually and collectively, and the concept of moral evolution–at a recent Oregon Council for the Humanities Think & Drink, a happy-hour series that sparks provocative conversations about big ideas.

Tim Wise – audio interview

Race is, and always has been, an explosive issue in the United States. In this timely new book, Tim Wise explores how Barack Obama’s emergence as a political force is taking the race debate to new levels. According to Wise, for many whites, Obama’s rise signifies the end of racism as a pervasive social force; they point to Obama as a validation of the American ideology that anyone can make it if they work hard, and an example of how institutional barriers against people of color have all but vanished. But is this true? And does a reinforced white belief in color-blind meritocracy potentially make it harder to address ongoing institutional racism? After all, in housing, employment, the justice system and education, the evidence is clear: white privilege and discrimination against people of color are still operative and actively thwarting opportunities, despite the success of individuals like Obama.

John Mayer + concert + audio

comments

John Mayer audio from concert in Noblesville Indiana download flac files to listen

John Mayer allows audio recording at most concerts. This is a good thing. Audio of the entire John Mayer show from July 5th in Noblesville, Indiana is available via John Mayer’s website. The concert is in .flac format. It’s a lossless format which means that anyone who listens to it automatically wins.

The audio can be downloaded two different ways. First, you could download each .flac audio file individually from the Internet Archive.

Or, you could download the entire show using a torrent client.

Note, a lot of audio playback apps do not support .flac files. Fortunately, one of my faves, the VLC media player (free + works on almost all OS’s) easily plays .flac files in all of their lossless awesomeness.

“Now it isn’t easy to stand up for truth and for justice. Sometimes it means being frustrated. When you tell the truth and take a stand, sometimes it means that you will walk the streets with a burdened heart. Sometimes it means losing a job…means being abused and scorned.”

Martin Luther King Jr., “Why I Am Opposed to the War in Vietnam”

Here is the first 30 minutes of Al Gore’s keynote at the NASPA/ACPA 2007 Joint Meeting. [27 mb mp3]

The talk was fairly similar to An Inconvenient Truth. Vice President Gore used an Apple MacBook Pro and Keynote 3.0 to deliver his presentation. It’s probably the best infographic talk that I have ever witnessed. The content and the presentation were stellar.
