Placemarks to the People – Feedback

Thursday, November 21st, 2013

One more thing that I love about presenting at the High Ed Web Dev conference: They collect and share data about your presentation. This type of information helps me understand my presentation choices and, hopefully, helps me improve the presentations I give. Since they were nice enough to share with me, I’ll share it with […]

16 Ton Stout 2.0 16 Ton Stout 2.0

Saturday, November 9th, 2013

We need a stout. Rather than another Shakespeare clone, we decide to go way, way back and give the 16-ton another shot. At one point, I was planning to brew a massive 16% ABV imperial, but seeing as we still have bottles from the last imperial… let’s dial it back a bit. Recipe Specifics Style: […]

Spruce Gueuze Spruce Gueuze

Saturday, November 9th, 2013

One of my very favorite items ever brewed was the Spruce Tip ale that accidentally went sour. We’re going to try and recreate it, but also go a step further: by replacing 30% of the barley with wheat, we’ll have a better foundation for a lambic. If we then save it to mix with future […]

Use all the hops! Ebenezer IPA 2.0

Saturday, November 9th, 2013

Still trying to perfect an IPA recipe.  The Ranger(ish) clone was great, but lacked hop character. The Ebenezer IPA and Loop de Loop, on the other hand, took things a bit too far. So, it’s time to go back to the basics. Let’s brew the basic Ranger malt profile with heavy amounts of Cascades near […]

Blackish Frost (CDA Experiment) Blackish Frost (CDA Experiment)

Monday, November 4th, 2013

It’s been a long, long while since we last brewed, but with the cold weather setting in I got the bug to do a spur-of-the-moment CDA. Instead of hitting the brew store, I literally scoured the basement for ingredients. There were many substitutions. Some of the grain was over year old – but still tasted fresh […]

Karlyn Borysenko: Marketing Manager, Eduventures Everyone loves data, but few people really understand how to collect it in a way that will stand up to scrutiny of your boss, your colleagues and….worst of all….any faculty members that you may need to convince. Fear not, help has arrived. In this session, Karlyn Borysenko will give you […]

MPD11: Faux Pas, Phonies and Flub-ups: How to Handle Social Media Spoofs, Goofs and Snafus

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013

Donna Talarico: Integrated Marketing Manager, Elizabethtown College OMG! There’s a typo in my post and it already has seven likes and a share. UH-OH! Someone created a phony account for our mascot! YIKES! I just tweeted from Happy Hour – on the College’s account. If you’re human (you are, right?), then that means you’re bound […]

UAD10: The Goal: Data Driven Design

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013

Jeremy Streich: Web Applications Develoer, UW-Milwaukee The modern web design fashion is to whole sale redesign when things get stale. Marketing “refreshes” are par for course when people begin talking about “brand identity.” That said, wholesale redesign of site based solely on the opinion of the highest paid person in the room’s opinion is fool […]
