Postmortem on a LiveEDU Live Stream Project (Part 1)

The past couple of months I've been live coding a project at [LiveEDU]( As I get ready to wrap up the project and start some new endeavors I'm taking a moment to think about the LiveEDU service itself and what I did well or could have done better.


Just bought a car off @Carvana the process was dead simple. Dealerships are toast.

@StaceyClermont According to this article they’re reverting those changes but they’re not hotfixing they’re going to adjust the settings next release. Google of 2018 is living off the halo 2006 and it’s time for me to go. Found great alternatives for everything.

@StaceyClermont plus I just don’t trust google. They have way too much info and even if this blows over and they adjust their settings back to something normal you’re still seeing that whole “we know what’s best for you” mentality creep in.

I’ve almost totally removed google products from my life. Last thing lve got is gmail. Switching over to Fastmail soon and after that I’m google-less. Feels good.

Had a moment of horror tonight when a student reminded me we have a quiz coming up. Then I remembered I’m writing it not taking it

Really enjoying this new Mac feature where my screens reorient themselves upside down when I lock the screen. It’s super awesome. /sarcasm

@AntMennie I’ve deleted it off my phone months ago. I sign in on a Firefox Facebook only sandbox...browse for 3 minutes...hate everything I see and leave again.

Right now, many survivors of sexual assault are reliving trauma. If you’re a survivor, know that you are not alone. If you need to talk, you can call 800-656-HOPE to reach a national, confidential helpline 24/7. There is also an online hotline here ->

The other thing I’ll be doing is something I did during the IE6 days: I’ll delete chrome from family members computers and default them to Firefox. Google doesn’t seem to remember the impact that had when devs did this to Microsoft it was substantial and it will happen again.

By Chrome 75 they will have a preferred cookie list and those cookies will persist forever too. So happy to have switched back to @firefox I treat @googlechrome like a virus. Same way I treated IE6 back in the day. Amazing that google doesn’t see/care about these parallels.

So I’ve now been teaching at @RutgersU for about a year and I’ve got no idea where the hell the other lecturers eat. I go to the student center and feel like I’m acting out a scene from Old School.
