I’m really excited to be part of the Imvoto team, which is getting on with the task of improving the classroom experience. We will be rolling out an extended trial soon… watch this space!
Ruth recently participated in the IdeaTransform event at the Cambridge Judge Business School, a “boot camp” in which folks get together on Friday to pitch business ideas and take them forward over the weekend. Ruth selected the Imvoto team because of a good match of needs and the simple yet brilliant idea behind the pitch: using smartphones in the classroom to implement hard parts of Assessment for Learning.
Recently I have been working on a new website for a client who needed to display both internal and external URLs in a specific way, and also distinguish between, for example, a link to a webform and a link to a procedure. I realized that the majority of my problem would be fixed by a BBCode style “tag” which could be translated into appropriate markup by a filter. Thus the linktags module was born.
One of the things I do occasionally is make maps and similar drawings, and not infrequently these have to be saved as a bitmap ﬁle, although I create them as vectors. One of the irritating things about Illustrator is its poor handling of large pixel images, even on export, and so the largest vector plots I do (32k points square) won’t render.
If you do more with your PC than view things obtained from Steam or iTunes, it is important that you keep them safe somehow.
