7.03.2019Seth Godin had a throwaway line in the opening to his “Of Course They Cheated” podcast, but it’s a definition I’ve not heard before and can’t find elsewhere (at least, not this succinctly):“Management” and “Leadership” are not the same thing. Management is done with power and authority, compelling others to do what we need them to do when we need them to do it. Leadership, on the other hand, always involves voluntary compliance. It always involves people eagerly following the leader.This is in interesting in and of itself, but Godin goes on to talk about “education.”And the same dichotomy is true about “learning” and “education.” Education is often done “to” us. It is mandatory. People show up and say “You will learn this and there will be a test.” That’s different than learning. Learning is a process we choose to go through. Learning needs to happen more and more. There are more “learning opportunities” than ever before. And yet, too many people are hung up on the “education industrial complex.”Until age 10 I was in a Montessori school, and then I was “home schooled.” But mom never liked the term “homeschooling” even though it was the term of art in the 1980s. She preferred “home education,” noting that if someone wanted his or her children in “school” then why not put them in a school? This reflects the quote (attributed to Mark Twain, though it predates him) to never let your schooling get in the way of your education… but Godin goes even further, moving “education” from the “learning bucket” into the “schooling bucket.”
I never do.
But if you haven't noticed, this blog used to be the equivelent kind of archive... so, why not do that again?

- Target Corporate "techbites" - heard about this at MinneBar but I don't know how it's spelled and it's apparently on their intranet so that might explain why a search turns up nothing.
4.03.2019I’m cleaning up my iPhone and getting rid of apps I never use, so I can declutter my life a bit. Figured I should make a list somewhere, and the world might be interested?
- iLife suite – GarageBand, iMovie, Numbers, etc.
- Bible Lens from Life.Church – I think this uses AI to identify photos and slap out-of-context Bible verses onto them?
- United – I’ll grab it back if I ever fly United again
- Classic Words – I don’t play Scrabble, even though some friends and family do
- Docs from Google – I can grab it if I ever need it, right?
- Skype for Business – We use Zoom here now and this will probably change by the next time I need to use it
- Clips from Apple – I don’t know what this is so I suspect I can live without it? My phone says I’ve never used it.
- Six – Game. I’m not big on games.
- Hue – I don’t own any hue bulbs. Probably grabbed it for something at work.
- SiriusXM – don’t have a subscription and even if I did I’d listen to Pandora and podcasts instead
- Daddy – it’s a game (a frustrating one of a box walking on long fragile legs)
- WebEx Meet – we don’t use WebEx here anymore. (Zoom all the way!)
- Glympse – unneeded now that I don’t do hot air balloon chases anymore (after my balloonist friend had a heart attack and no longer flies)
- Blue Jeans – another unnecessary conference app
- Little Caesars – sure, I like their sausage pizza every once in awhile, but do I really need their app which I apparently never use?
- Vitality Today – we don’t use Vitality here anymore
- 5 Minute Journal, the first version – they have a new version (beige icon good, blue icon bad) so I finally deleted this
- AIRTAME – played with it at a school that used it in their classrooms, but we don’t, so I don’t need it.
- Spirit Airlines check-in – it doesn’t allow booking or other useful stuff, so I’ll re-grab it if I ever fly Spirit again (which I might; they’re great!)
- Gas Tracker by Fuelly – I think this is their old version so I should really keep only the new version
- TruGlyph – I think there’s a cost to this app that I don’t want to accidentally incur, so I’ll get rid of it for now.That’s enough for one day, right?
