💬

Good morning. [turns on mic] Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world, and you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. [pauses] Mankind. That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it’s fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom. Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution… but from annihilation. We’re fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice: We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on! We’re going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!

– President Whitmore, Independence Day (1996)

Bookmarked Thomas, sjung inte!!!!!! – Nordegren & Epstein i P1 (sverigesradio.se)

Går det att göra musik på avstånd? Flera musikaliska akter prövar detta på grund av det rådande läget. Musikproducenten och docenten Henrik Carlsson diskuterar.

Jag pratade radio i Nordengren & Epstein i P1 i förra veckan. Segmentet jag var med i handlade om att spela musik tillsammans samtidigt som vi distanserar oss socialt.

(Det stämmer inte att jag är docent.)

Damn the torpedoes. Allow me to present, a work in progress – and absolutely not finished, a new look of my blog.

In a few minutes I will be appearing in Swedish national radio, talking about playing music together online in the times of the plague.

The making of a new blog theme

One of the best signs of spring and summer is that I get the urge to tinker with my blog. Right now I’m going through very old posts and making sure that the images in them aren’t broken. Also, I think I’m going to redo the blog’s theme from scratch.

Here’s some thought I wrote down for myself late yesterday.

@jemostrom I have the same experience. A few of my students speak up in the large group but it’s pretty much the same students that used to talk the most in lectures on campus as well.

In smaller groups it works much better. The breakout rooms of Zoom is a nice tool for that.

The chat is a different beast. There they tend to be quite chatty. Lot’s of good questions, and sometimes answers to each others questions, and also quite a lot of internet humour, text based memes, etc. In one lecture I had to tell them to back off on the silliness in the chat so valuable questions and/or answers didn’t disappear in the flood of jokes.

@tgray In my current course (Software Engineering) it’s pretty much the same thing for me personally. A few lectures but otherwise Scrum meetings and other similar stuff.
And since I have the corresponding hardware at home (in some cases better), approximately the same network connectivity (I’ve had…

@jemostrom I gotta say, for me and my students the move online works really well. A lot better than I had thought if somebody has asked me three months ago.

And you are probably right about the difficulties for students that don’t know each other. My students have all had 30 weeks of campus studies together so they are quite a tight group already.
