"There are some paths in this forest, if you walk them you'll find yourself." I smiled nervously. "Hah, yeah." The old stranger took a step off the path to let me pass, and looked intently at me as I did. After a few steps I realised who it was, and turned around. "Take care." #MicroFiction #TootFic #SmallStories

For more than a decade, I've doted on Haunted Dimensions, Ray Keim's incredible, Haunted Mansion-themed papercraft site, home to many download/print/assemble models of Disney's Haunted Mansion (they make GREAT gingerbread templates!).
Nearly 500 CC-licensed Education Images are Now Available!
The Alliance for Excellent Education (All4Ed) just released the second edition of their openly licensed digital image collection, “American Education: Images of Teachers and Students in Action.” This edition features nearly 500 high-quality images of teachers and students licensed Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 (CC BY-NC 4.0). A screenshot of the digital collection from the Alliance for Excellent Education. Captured by Allison Shelly (photojournalist and co-founder of Women Photojournalists of Washington) and funded by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, these images portray “deep learning” both before and during the COVID-19 pandemic at the UCLA Community School in Los Angeles and Sutton Middle School in Atlanta.
“These are some of the final images we have of classroom-based instruction prior to the coronavirus sending students and teachers home for months of online instruction,” said Deborah Delisle, All4Ed president and CEO. “The idea of deeper learning is evolving as schools across the country rethink how they deliver instruction, and we are excited to see what that shift produces in thoughtful, innovative ways of engaging students.”
Here at Creative Commons, we’re especially excited to use these images in relation to our work in Open Education. As we continue advocating for and supporting the development of OER policies globally, the images we use should accurately illustrate the messages we send. That’s why openly licensed stock photography collections (like this one!) that are inclusive and representative is imperative.
Congratulations to the Alliance for Excellent Education on a great collection!

The team at Anvil recently open sourced the Anvil App Server, a runtime engine for hosting web apps built entirely in Python.
The community reaction has been overwhelmingly positive, and we, at Anvil, have already incorporated lots of that feedback into our next release. But one of the questions we keep getting asked is, "Why did you choose to open source such a core part of your product?"
