    1. It’s the same old story – if you spend a lot of time trying to become famous, then you become famous, but you won’t have spent any time doing anything worth being famous for.

    1. To be playful is to appropriate a context that is not created or intended for play

      Hadn’t noticed this quote but it merges two of the concepts I personally find key (and been discussing ad nauseam): appropriation through usage and serious playfulness. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ivj6mx9dgqg

    1. the personal, social, and emotional transformations that adolescents and adults who are at risk experience as they develop resilience and shift from disengagement to engagement, and/or academic failure to success in schools.

      I think it's important to be able to identify the changes in attitude, relationships and moods that we can see when at-risk teenagers begin to be self-directed learners. If we could see what these changes look like and agree on them, then we might be able to assess students better. Currently none of the ways we move or prevent students from moving through school make sense to me: social promotion (advancement because of age), testing (usually of a small subset of math and reading skills), or even portfolio assessment (because at-risk students usually don't have a body of "mastery" level work).

    1. Huge follower counts on YouTube and social media DO NOT easily translate to income. And those followers expect you to be "real" -- so they are hostile to advertising and sponsored content.

      Do you own a business? It might pay to offer a salary to the producers of a YouTube channel that reaches your target audience -- in exchange for low-profile "brought to you by" links and mentions that won't offend that audience.

    1. The flare tipped Gillette Super Speed razor with the regular unpainted handle was manufactured in 1954-1966. It gives my moderately heavy beard a very smooth, comfortable, and efficient shave with a Feather blade. It is slightly heavier and definitely more aggressive than its ultra-mild blue tipped brother. It is less aggressive than the red tip version. It (along with the late 1940's Super Speed) is the best Gillette Super Speed razor for most persons. The shaving performance appears to be the same as the late 1940's version, which has a more classic design handle. The flare tip regular Gillette Super Speed is an outstanding razor.
