Beginning

I’m taking a risk, because isn't that what #CLMOOC is all about? I'm trying a new web tool, Mozilla's X-Ray Goggles. A hack. A remix. I was inspired by Karen LaBonte's recent post Unexpected Smiles: A #CLMOOC Reflection" in her blog All Hands on Deck. I immediately changed the name, connected this new idea to my recent work in #2nextprez, and thought that this could be the beginning of an interesting collaborative remix. So I encourage you to use X-Ray Goggles to add you own thoughts to the theme "Smile, it's an election year!" or remix this idea to one of your own. Add images. Add video. Add quotes. And drawings. And your words.

What are you waiting for?

This would be a great place for a quote, don't you think?

A collaborative blog based on a blog not related to the election. Who knew?

Remember to download X-Ray Goggles.

I've left Karen's headings and images as they appear in the original blog post.

I've also left her Smiles below untouched. But that doesn't mean you can't retouch, remix them.

Smiles Along the Way

smile My church is a Pokestop. (That was a giggle more than a smile.)

smileAt the library, a high school-aged girl passed me as I unlocked my bike. She caught my eye and smiled as she fiddled with her phone. “Mine is frozen,” I said, gesturing to PokemonGo. “Mine, too,” she said; “It keeps saying to try later.” We both smiled, shrugged.

smileAs I slogged up a hill, I passed an elderly gentleman waiting for someone at the end of his driveway. “Have a wonderful day,” he called. “You too,” I said/panted/grimaced.

Coincide/nce

Not sure if the heading above has a typo or not, but I love how the word coincide is highlighted. Not sure what the "nce" would be. She also uses the words "ostensibly" and "confluence" in this paragraph. Let's leave these two words in here.

The question is, what will we make of it?
