how did I hide digital editions and Microsoft User Data

| | | | | | | |

I am attempting to recreate all of the little customizations that I have layered onto my MBP.

In the Documents folder, I had removed the unwelcome ‘Microsoft User Data’ and Digital Editions folders from the finder by hiding them…

Or, more accurately, in the case of the MUD folder; moved the folder to ~/Library/ and created an alias to the original.

15 hard-to-clean spots on any hard drive...

| | | | | | | |

So here is my list of cobwebby digital corners that, despite my 'best' efforts, nearly always seem to be in a deep state of disarray. They seem to remain on the back burner, in the back of my mind as something I know I should tidy up some day, but that day never seems to come.

personal learning - Rothkopf and Laurillard's 'mathemagenics'

| | | | |

In my PKM hajj, I am reviewing some of the buzz on PKM. Its mostly bloggers like Llia Elfimova.

Incidentally, I found I myself intrigued not only by her blogging her PhD process (with significant gaps of late for child rearing) but in the etymology of her namesake...

The idea: 'mathemagenics' as activity from which learning emerges.
