#22 – Because I’m a [Robot] Unicorn


Brian, Judy, and Megan Bowe talk about the Tin Can API and related issues: personal data lockers, data sharing, analytics, learning from the marketing department, our upcoming DevLearn presentations (no longer upcoming), and designing for the unknown. And, out of frustration with Skype, we talk VOIP tools. And Megan issues a challenge.

The drinks

Brian drank Chimay Grand Reserve

Judy drank Flemish Kiss from The Commons Brewery

#21 – We Got Your Buzz Words Right Here


Judy talked and drank with Kris Rockwell and Reuben Tozman, and it was pretty much like this (thanks, Kris).

We talked about the parallel evolution of humans and technology, innovations in learning, HTML5, Tin Can, mlearning, gaming, gamification, and some of the new cliches of the learning world, including The Matrix and Captain Sully.

It was a conversation that could have gone on for hours (and particularly if we hadn’t kept getting interrupted by kid stuff), so we plan to record again soon with these guys.

The drinks

Judy drank Little Sumpin’ Wild from Lagunitas

Reuben drank Woodford Bourbon

Kris drank Johnny Walker Blue

#14 – Phoning it In


A brief episode about Project Tin Can, next-generation SCORM, activity streams and much more, with our special guest and friend, Aaron “The Beard” Silvers. Stick around for the second half, in which Aaron talks about positivity, Up To All Of Us, entrepreneurship, experience design, pushing the community forward, and much more. Oh, and a special announcement about DevLearn 2012. Pour yourself a drink and settle in.

Aaron wants to make sure it’s abundantly clear that his thoughts are his own, not ADL’s.

About Tin Can: They are taking an agile approach. They also want community feedback and involvement. It will be better if you get involved.

The Drinks

Aaron drank Root.

Brian drank Raven Mad and Hop Henge.

Judy drank Genius Loci’s 2006 Pinot Noir.
