Welcome to five ideas and one coffee. Each week, a combination of what's going on in the ongoing convergence of digital and social media, and how that impacts the way we communicate. Plus, something I learned about coffee this week. Let's get started!
Tech billionaires not so successful in reimagining school.
This headline stood out to me the glorification of being busy - it's religious language, but not actually a religious article, rather directing the reader to some suggestions away from busyness.

One of the best of the "how movies work" YouTube channels - Every Frame a Painting, has called it a day. Maybe the best sentence from the article: By taking your research to the library, you’re immediately breaking out of the online cycle of repetition, and your work will improve immediately.
Idea Five (the how-to's):
This year, I'd like to hear from you about what you've learned over coffee. In the meantime, what is coffee (an introduction)?
... that's it!
See you next week. Hit reply if you've learned something, or if you'd like to suggest an idea or a coffee.
Thanks to the people who hit reply: I really appreciate the encouragement.
