So I did a presentation at NDF on Digital Preservation.
It’s now available on Youtube. Probably like most folks I only managed to watch the first little bit. 🙂
When looking to access an article on ERIC I was pointed to this message:
“Dear ERIC Community, We have currently disabled access to many ERIC full-text PDFs due to the discovery of personally identifiable information in some documents. A team is in place to check each PDF to see if it contains personally identifiable information. Due to the quality of many of the documents, a large portion of the search has to be done by hand. This will take several weeks, but our primary concern is to protect the privacy of individuals. To minimize the burden on our users, we will prioritize searching the PDFs that users request. If you would like to request a PDF to be returned online, please fill out this form, which requires only the document’s ERIC record number and your email address. Full-text PDFs will be returned on a rolling basis. We will be posting the list of newly released documents here.
We are sorry for the inconvenience and want to thank you for bearing with us through this unexpected delay.
The ERIC Team.”
Now I hadn’t heard about this and wondered if others had?
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 16,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
I have done a couple of writing for the web courses and both of them have told me the same thing.
That you want to have lots of good white space on the right side of the screen. To do this they tell us that you should only justify the left hand margin and not the right. This is meant to make the page look nice for people to read. My problem is that I look at posts and pages like that and think how unprofessional. Nice neat justified margins on both sides of the text signifies to me that the editor has taken the time to tidy up the page. Below this post is one where I haven’t justified both sides, while this one is aligned fully. 🙂
Which do you prefer? Is it just me being overly tidy? I am trying to work out in my head whether I should just go with what the course writers say or work to what I like. 😆
