Neighborhood Monster 4

I just finished Wa7sh el 7ara, the personal visual commentary about the Jordan Gate buildings in Um Otheina, Amman. They do disturb me still, at night more than day. It has polluted my visual outlook while driving in my neighborhood. I wanted to do this for more than 6 months, so I happy i got to do it before the end of the year!

Thanks to Lubna for the sound design, perfect music to fit the story board.

So watch and enjoy! and of course do tell me what you think :-)

Airports are boring, where are you scotty? 2

I’m at Queen Alia International Airport in Amman, its boring. Even when there is wireless its still boring. Traveling is great only if we could skip the airports, airplanes, check in, passport all of it.

Really, when will someone create the transporter, i am constantly thinking “beam me up scotty”.

Had to rant a bit before i start my looong trip to Canada.

A whole new Questler 2


Yes, we did it! We launched the wide beta at midnight yesterday or today, sometime in the middle of the 4th and 5th of November!

The whole new Questler is up and running, and its just too exciting to be part of such project. A learning network that engages individuals in their own learning management through connecting them with others who share their interests to learn, collaborate and share ideas.

In addition to tweaking the Quests tool, we launched a new one called Discoveries.

Discoveries, a mini-blog that enables individuals to share a piece of information they have just learned or unlearned as it happens. They can also, add their comments or even challenge discoveries made by others.

All to exciting, we will start working on a facebook application that will enable users to extend their Facebook experience into one that focuses more on their learning.

Check it out at questler.com!
