When Obsessions Collide

Though you may neither know nor care, I’ve two sorts of identities. I’m an academic, with an interest in things Celtic and Medieval. I even blog about them here. But I’m also a technologist, with a professional interest in multimedia and the uses of digital technology for instruction and scholarship. More often than you might think, these interests (obsessions?) collide.

For instance, I discovered, via Dave Winer’s post that there’s an Irish course being offered on blogging, or “Essential Web Journaling” using Radio. It’s a solid looking syllabus too. The company offering the class, Xi:Blue, also offers an Irish technology blog, that describes itself as “a clearing house for the latest digital video and media news as seen from an Apple, and an Irish, perspective.”
