Heading into the new year my web activity is all happening elsewhere.

Adventures in Multimodal Design 2.0
And another season of the Adventures in Multimodal Design graduate seminar is underway at the Carleton University architecture school. This year, instead of Blogger & Google Drive we’ll be using a private group blog based on the elegant Twenty Twelve theme from WordPress.com, which you can glimpse below but not get onto. After they’re completed (in April) the student projects will all be posted, likely over at Design Incubator. We’ll also be using the trusty AMD Pinterest board to which I have been posting multimodal (text/image/data) designs for almost a year now. (I’ve also posted a couple hundred items over on the Slow Ottawa Pinterest board.) Most students in a class of 16 (so far) have never blogged before and I’ve never group blogged, so it should be fun. Also we’ll be choosing projects sooner, and aiming to do pro bono communications work for local non-profits, which at the very least should allow students to add some community service work to their CVs.
