Pi, Clocks, and Games – The Week in Review

Good morning from Maine where we’ve awoken to rain that is forecasted to turn to snow. We had a couple of spring-like days this week and it was nice to get outside on my bike. But living in Maine means enjoying every season (except black fly season) and I plan to enjoy today’s weather by doing a little skiing. I hope you also do something this weekend. 

This week I hosted or co-hosted two webinars. I also spent a good deal of time filing DMCA takedown notices for websites that were plagiarizing my work. In fact, I filed more than 100 of them this week. Getting sites to stop stealing my work is the Internet’s worst version of whack-a-mole. If you ever find yourself in a similar situation, here’s how to file a DMCA takedown notice with Google

These were the week’s most popular posts:
1. Five Ways to Create Online Drag-and-Drop Activities
2. How to Make Your Own Wordle-style Game
3. PowerPoint Cameo Looks Cool and Could be Useful
4. Daylight Saving Time is Coming! Here are Some Explanations of It
5. How to Add Narration to Google Slides Without Add-ons
6. How to Suppress Background Noise in Loom Recordings
7. Pi Day is Coming!
