University of Idaho professor Luke Harmon contributed work for the One Zoom Tree of Life, which allows users to zoom in on the branches. It is a beautiful interface but I am always looking for ways students can contribute to knowledge. The good news is that it looks like there is a plan for an Open Tree of Life using the OneZoom technology, which is currently available for download. Another amazing Tree of Life project was recommended to me a few years ago by biology students at Washington State University. That The Tree Of Life Web Project allows treehouse builders to contribute to the tree. Love it.
In all of my ePortfolio work I talk about using the blog as an engine for collecting evidence and tagging that evidence so that during the selection process it is easy to filter. But I never follow my own advice. So as of today (1/15/13) I am going to begin dumping things in here and see if I can train myself to get in the habit of posting something at least once a week.
