I was wondering what to do for my 100th blog post as a reborn blogger. Out of the blue Noel Chidwick my blogging partner from 00-03 got in touch.
Now the founder of the New Curiosity Shop He was the first guy I knew who worked with Moodle in UK and walked the walk - he left security behind to set up virtual education services.
He is not edupunk but eduprog. Check out http://www.myspace.com/quasarone and progressive in all he does.
Here's Noel's Christmas message.
'Here’s something to get you into the Christmas spirit - pop along to our band website
And play the video of our new Christmas song ‘We're Going to the Moon For Christmas’. - See if you can work out which one is supposed to be me.
It’s relentlessly chirpy and will have you humming along to the chorus all the way home – Noddy Holder eat your heart out.
We’re giving it away for free, so you can stick it on your iPod, but we are also asking folk to contribute to UNICEF – there’s a link to the UNICEF site alongside the song.
Oh, and it is educational too – you’ll learn all about the Apollo 8 mission, 40 years ago this December.
Turn up the volume as loud as you can!
Best of all, forward this message to anyone you know.'
Even as an old punk I find it hard to beat this worthy and creative message.
