Cute Notebook just a notebook but it's all hopped up on cuteness. simple fun notebooks from wal-mart....with many many ribbons tied to the side. that's it. this is the mysterious crayon project! using old crayons...i made new ones. (you can make ice or bake in them too.) first break the crayons up and put the pieces into the shapes on the trays. set the silicone trays on a cookie sheet for stability. preheat your oven to 250-ish. put sheet of trays into the warm oven and check at 10 minutes. when all the crayons pieces have become liquid....they are done! remove the sheet from the oven and let cool for at least an hour...or 3 or 4. the liquid wax was beautiful! i was loving it! i wanted to pour it all over something and paint with it. maybe another time.... each letter crayon is about 2 inches tall. they are still crayons.... just now instead of being dull shaped old crayons in the bottom of the box they are adorable bright alphabet shapes. i love them. and now for the new obsession. it's SO EXCITING!!! and voila!

Handmade Books The last couple weeks I have been learning how to make books as part of my internship at the Morgan Art of Papermaking Conservatory. One of the most basic sewn bookbinding structures is called Japanese Stab Binding. It involves lining up the pages and covers of the soon-to-be book, making a series of holes, and sewing along the edge of the stack. These books are all made using scraps of leftover and recycled paper. The covers include handmade papers, maps from an old atlas, and an old field guide for identifying trees. The smaller books are made using lined notebook paper, pieces of scrapbook paper leftover from making cards, and empty Kleenex boxes.

Open Education and Bio380 lecture on Neanderthals This academic year I have set myself the goal of making all my lecture available for all, in the public domain, via YouTube and maybe also Slideshare. The technical side of doing this is fairly straightforward (capture a screen movie via QuickTime), but the major hassle is ensuring and documenting permissions for all images. In my first attempt, I quickly realised that putting this information on the same slides as the images led to cluttered chaos, so I have piled them all up at the end of the talk. It is unclear to me what the rules are about using material from published papers, but cannot see how authors would not want students to know about their work. It will be interesting to see if anyone other than my own students look at this stuff, but here we go, the game's afoot! Here is my first lecture for this year from the Bio380 course: Waking the Dead, on Neanderthals and their influence on the modern human gene pool. Slidecast via YouTubeSlides via Slideshare
