Thanks to Ross Cooper for publishing the first review of Blending Leadership on his blog.

I had a terrific experience at the Building Learning Communities conference in Boston. Below are my slides from the two sessions I facilitated.
Here is a link to the latest newsletter and below are some images — photos, sketchnotes, and a header image — to wrap up the week.
Tomorrow will be the first official 'book signing' for Blending Leadership at the Building Learning Communities Conference in Boston, MA. A limited number of copies will be available. Like Radiohead's release of In Rainbows almost 8 years ago, people (tomorrow) can pay whatever price ($0 and up) they want to! Below are some images taken today.
Some big scary bugs had been hanging out near the front door of my home. After a couple of weeks I decided to call an exterminator to see if there was something to make them go away (not necessarily kill them). I thought they were yellow jackets.
The exterminator came and said, "Oh don't worry, these are just Cicada Killer Wasps."
Right, not worry! But apparently they don't care about humans but rather catching cicadas, taking them to a burrow and then laying eggs inside of them which will hatch and eat said cicada.
So I drew a Cicada Killer Wasp. You can see one on our car (though it looks like it is killing another Cicada Killer Wasp instead of a cicada!)
In the age of Photos, Photo Stream, and limited on-device storage, a problem I frequently run into is that many photos taken on my 16GB iPhone have registered as already being imported to my computer via PhotoStream. That's great to have that automation, but then when I need to clear some space the Photos app on OS X does not give me an option to delete those already imported items.
A little internet research taught me that the native Image Capture app will allow you to delete multiple images and videos from an external device connected via USB cable. So my new process is to first import New Items from my device and select the checkbox to "Delete items after import." Then I open Image Capture, select all of the leftover images, and click the little "NO..." symbol on the bottom, just to the left of the Import To: drop-down menu.
This is the progression from a great Wilco song. I'm going to be in Germany soon so that is the inspiration.
