Tiny Tiny RSS : auto-hébergement des flux RSS - ®om's blog Je vais expliquer dans ce billet pourquoi et comment installer Tiny Tiny RSS, un gestionnaire de flux RSS sur son serveur. Motivations Pourquoi un serveur ? Il existe de nombreux clients d’agrégateurs de flux, tels que Liferea sous Gnome ou NewsFox dans Firefox. Cependant, un tel client pose principalement deux problèmes. Le premier, c’est le temps d’attente de mise à jour des flux. Un gestionnaire de flux doit donc, d’après moi, forcément être hébergé sur un serveur. Pourquoi son serveur ? De nombreux services en ligne proposent la gestion de flux RSS (Google Reader, NetVibes, etc.). Pourquoi donc héberger un tel service sur son propre serveur ? Par principe. Installation Je vais expliquer l’installation de Tiny Tiny RSS pour ma configuration, à savoir Ubuntu Server 11.04, avec Apache et MySQL. Dépendances Tiny Tiny RSS a besoin de php5-curl : sudo apt-get install php5-curl Téléchargement Télécharger la dernière version en bas de la page officielle (actuellement la 1.5.4). mv tt-rss-1.5.4 flux cd ..

How To Learn A New Skill Systematically With Collaborative Learning Playlists We have heard about playlists. Frequently used in the context of music, playlists are a series of digital files arranged orderly so you can play them one after the other. Of course, you can play them randomly too. Either way, playlists are an organizational tool that help you personalize your listening or viewing experience. It is because you choose what to keep and what to shed on a playlist. Wouldn’t learning benefit from such an arrangement? Learning and Teaching at MentorMob Information overload is not only because there is too much to process. MentorMob is an attempt to organize learning into relevant chunks i.e. playlists. MentorMob was launched in November, 2011 and is in Alpha presently. The Anatomy of a Learning Playlist A learning playlist looks like this: As you can see, the learning content has been collected from different sources but is arranged systematically. For Learners – Browsing Playlists You do not have to register and log-in to see what playlists are there.

How I use Evernote to support my sketchnoting practice I’ve drawn many sketchnotes, which are real-time visual summaries of presentations or other sources of information. I often need to find a particular sketchnote or set of sketchnotes. For example, if someone’s curious about a book, I like being able to send them my sketchnote of it. If I’m convincing a conference to hire me for sketchnotes, it helps to pull up sketchnotes on similar topics. Organizing my sketches After drawing my sketchnotes using Autodesk Sketchbook Pro and saving them as PNGs, I use a right-click shortcut to send them to Evernote. This is what a sketchnote looks like in my Evernote notebook: I tag my sketchnotes with various keywords to help me find things again. Then I can use tag:____ searches to find collections of sketchnotes, and I can right-click on the set and export the attachments to a directory if needed. Searching This is how awesome it is. Building my visual vocabulary I want to get better at drawing concepts in different ways. Getting inspired Other thoughts
