Final post of 2013: Google Chrome Omnibox

I stumbled upon this idea on Twitter. This blog post is inspired by Jennie Magiera's post,  Karl Lindgren-Streicher's post, and Robert Pronovost's post. The idea is to type in the letters of the alphabet in the Chrome omnibox and see what comes up! A simple but fun activity!

A: AOKP.co - I'm an Android enthusiast and geek. AOKP is a custom Android ROM!
B: Blogger.com - Need to blog more, but have been doing some!
C: Crosswalk.com - Glad to see my devotional pop up there!
D: Dishanywhere.com - Love being able to watch my Dish TV from anywhere! (geekmode)
E: Educationrethink.com - Actually 1 was ESPN, but @edrethink makes me think more!
F: Facebook.com - I have mixed feelings on this one.
G: Google.com - duh
H: HGTV.com - not sure on this one. Many other "http" recents, so not too interesting.
I: Idahotechtalk.org - Message board community for Idaho Tech Educator leaders,
J: Java.com
K: kelloggschools.org - My school district!
L: learni.st/users/jonsammy - Techlandia boards. See @ipadsammy I check the Learnist boards!
M: maps.google.com - love me some Google Maps!
N: netflix.com - what did we do before streaming movies? Oh yeah, went to a rental store.
O: Nothing... well except games.espn.go.com
P: play.google.com - +1 Google/Chrome/Android
Q: Nothing...
R: runkeeper.com - love this site and app for tracking activity (run, bike, walk etc)
S: starbucks.com - self explanatory
T: teachercast.tv - Awesome Edu PD
U: und.com - I'm a Notre Dame fan.
V: vandalgrads.com - our family blog.
W: warbyparker.com - tried to get glasses there. Couldn't fill my prescription. #bummed
X: xda-developers.com - Full Android #geekmode Custom ROMs galore.
Y: youtube.com - yay youtube.
Z: zite.com - don't use the magazine type app as much as I used to, but still a cool app.

My Homework for Dean Shareski @shareski

1. How do you feel about pants?
On a seasonal and situational basis, I am a fan of pants. Further, my pet peeve is when people think outdated, or ill fitting "slacks" or "khakis" are more appropriate than stylish jeans.

2. What was the last movie you saw in a theatre?
"Frozen" with my family. We rarely get to go to a theatre, so this was special. It was cold outside, and it is a holiday tradition for us so it was a wonderful time. I highly recommend the movie to anyone. Great music, effects, and message.

3. Where are your car keys?
In my right vest pocket. I'm in a meeting and it's not warm in this room.

4. What time is it?
11:22AM Pacific Time

5. What’s the last tweet you favorited?
Moss Pike @mosspike
+1 #Google #eduGeek RT @msvalois: It's official. #google has changed my life! Amazingness! I am in love. #gafesummit

6. Outside of your immediate family, which relative do you like to spend time with?
My in-laws. Seriously, they are incredible peopl…

PLN: Professional and Personal

A while ago, I blogged about my family, and shared it on my social media communities. Because it was family/personal in nature, I naturally expected more feedback and interaction from some networks such as Facebook, because they tend to be more "casual" or  "family" focused than some of my others like Twitter and Google+.

During one such interaction (on Twitter) I found myself apologizing for the nature of my most recent blog posts, because they were not "Ed Tech" focused. My gut level explanation was that this was "just where I am right now." These and similar ex…
