The Bookmark Meme

Ryan Bretag at The Four-Eyed Technologist has issue a great new meme to those bloggers whom he classifies as adding "to my growth on a daily basis." I don't know if I have added to Ryan's growth or not, but knowing that he has added to mine pushes me to contribute to the meme.

It's simple: what are your last five bookmarks? As Ryan points out, Vicki Davis does this on a near daily basis, and along with Kevin Jarret, I count over a hundred resources collected this way in my account.

Here are my last 5 bookmarks:

  1. Spaz
  2. SearchSmarter
  3. EdubloggerCon Wiki
  4. The Connected Classroom
  5. Behold, Flickr High-Quality Search
Spaz is a great twitter interface that runs on AIR (Adobe Integrated Runtime), and just has so much more functionality than what I was using, Twitterific. Thanks to John Pederson for that one. Search Smarter is a wiki I made for the Freshman and Sophomores this year to help them search with a little more efficiency. It's not as loaded as I wanted, but I didn't want to overwhelm them (which happened anyway). EdubloggerCon is a site created originally to house the planning processes involved in the first EduBloggerCon in the days before NECC07 in Atlanta. Now, it has grown to be a resource for anyone interested in school change and reform. Kristen Hokanson's Connected Classroom just happened upon me the other day on a recommendation from Jennifer Dorman's blog. I love wikis like this one because it has everything, and depending on the license, I can use the great work Kristen's done to help the teachers I work with. I just love smart people and the work they do. The last one, Behold, is a search engine that scours flickr for images that match your criteria, and you can even tell it to search for images that "look" like something in particular. Very sharp.

Hi Patrick

Thanks for posting your bookmarks and I especially like Behold as I use Flick Images all the time so this is another option for me to find images quickly.

You sure have added to my growth Patrick!

Keep up the great work in challenging all of us to think on a higher level.

I just use feedburner to create my RSS feed -- it splices in my delicious bookmarks on a daily basis -- and it is totally painless. Although the bookmarks don't show up on my blog as a blog post - I have them in a sidebar. However, those who read my blog via rSS get the bookmarks in their reader. is a great way to do it! I think bookmark sharing is a powerful tool!

Glad to be able to do that for you.


Thanks for the support, and I look forward to reading your future work.


That's something I have always loved about your blog, and now something I think I might pursue. I have not been incredibly active on lately, but as we move into the heavy part of our professional development schedule, I will be calling upon it more and more.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
