Leonardo Flores

Born in Bella Vista Hospital in Mayagüez on November 5, 1970, courtesy of Leonardo Flores Flores and María Nelsie Feliciano. Soon followed by Luis Carlos and Mari Nelsie Flores, we grew up in a farm on the shores of the Casey river in Las Marías. A few years, travels, and degrees later, I was happily joined by Kara Annette Fore in 2003. And on June 6, 2007 we begat Olivia Calliope Flores Fore, who inspires us to this day.

Goodbye World

This is not a suicide note! :-)

The time has come to say farewell to this blog, my homepage for the past 6 years.

Fortunately, this ending leads to a new beginning in my new blog: leonardoflores.net.

For a brief narrative of the goals, design, and purpose for this blog, including reasons for ending it, read “Hello World 2.0.”

Even though this blog’s entries live on in the new blog, this space will remain as an archive, frozen in time for however long Edublogs is maintained and as long as it doesn’t pose a security risk.

Thank you for visiting!

Recent presentations in Prezi

I have been using Prezi recently for my presentations and thought I’d share a link to them, for those interested in different ways of using this tool.

“Authorial Scholarship 2.0: Tracing the Creative Process in Online Communities”

My contribution to the ELMCIP: Remediating the Social conference has been published in the conference proceedings. A PDF of the publication is now available online at http://www.elmcip.net/story/remediating-social-e-book-released. To even get to participate at this highly selective conference is an honor, because it went thorough peer-review process. My final revision was submitted in June 2012.

You can also see my presentation here: ELMCIP Remediating the Social Conference, Panel 6.

And here’s the Prezi I used for the talk, which includes a video of Asteroids and of three early unpublished drafts of Jim Andrews’ videogame poem “Arteroids.”
