Stephanie Quilao... Back in Jour 163

Blogger Stephanie Quilao has stopped by to say hi and shoot the breeze with students in the new Jour 163 class here at SJSU.

The new class is being taught by Cynthia McCune and Steve Sloan. I use the progressive tense here literally; class is still in progress, and it looks like it's going to be an interesting semester.

Stephanie Quilao, well known to the blogging community for her "Back in Skinny Jeans" blog, had some pointers for upcoming bloggers.

The audio file from the first half of class and her presentation is here.

And... I'm back... for real.

Wow... school's in session. I'm trying to kill myself again this semester with another 18 units, coupling that with my added goal of blogging every other day and starting a web site. We'll see how all that goes. Oh ya, and I need a part-time job. Anyways, I'm sure it'll all turn out fine.

Last week I went to Steve Sloan's Pizzacast, from which I took this audiocast. Pardon the quality, the place was a little loud, and the pizza rather too good for my recorder to hold my interest for long.

Oh pizza... yee shall be the death of thee.

There were a couple new faces there, including a teacher who jested that she had only been there a week and had already been "found" by the blogging community.

The conversations were pretty interesting as always - Steve Sloan and Cynthia McCune will be starting a class (Jour 163) based on some of the conversations for past Pizzacasts - add while you can! It's going to be a great class.

Anyways, for those of you wishing I'd blog more (if any exist, we shall see), don't worry; I'm back with a bit of spit and piss. I also plan on doing some journalistic pieces soon, so stay tuned.
