I just read Seth Meranda's blog post and it got me to thinking that there are prob quite a few higher ed people that could follow each other on there.

So what is your twitter name?

I'm a Twitter convert. From finding it a silly and pointless exercise to a beneficial community.

That said, I ain't that exciting, but can be found at http://www.twitter.com/TimNekritz
Twitter has become my de facto broadcast-all method of getting answers to web questions. As an interactive and social tool it's better than IM or dumping stuff to Facebook's updates. OTOH, it is, in the end, just another way to communicate.

I'm at http://twitter.com/wnalyd
Just to update: I'm now at http://twitter.com/dylanw
I met Matt at a conference last year and have used Twitter to keep in contact with him and other professionals. When I tell people about Twitter, it seems like they end up saying, "So it's like your Facebook status, but with people you work with verses your friends." While that holds truth, it is so much more than that: keeping up to date with what others in your field are doing, and is very interactive so if you pose a question, you will get a good answer.

I'm on Twitter at http://twitter.com/hacool, but I barely use it. I find the 140 character limit restrictive, though as an announcement channel it could have uses in Higher Ed.

My primary social network is Pownce. I check Twitter and Facebook on occasion, but Pownce daily. Contrary to popular belief, Pownce is not Twitter with file sharing. http://www.pownce.com/cool/ (mixture of fluff and Web stuff) The ability to share files, links and ideas and follow a threaded discussion on a topic is invaluable both for networking and project collaboration as well as the entertainment value. Pownce gives me access to Web industry leaders such as Daniel Burka (designer for Digg and Pownce), connects me with interesting folks I'd not otherwise meet (one of my Pownce friends is a ship captain who runs a very cool blog for the maritime industry) and just interesting people with whom I can gripe about the weather, share silly videos or whatever.
I just started using twitter yesterday. Curiosity finally got to me.

I just started using Twitter today on Heidi Cool's recommendation. I'm probably already following some of you because she told me a few to follow. Can't wait to see what I learn.
What's your twitter username?
Ok I'm eating my own words from earlier and I'm jumping in...

Thoughts on "part-time work from home" for a web developer?

This isn't a posting for a job (but hopefully that will be coming soon!)We are looking to hire a new web developer, and have gotten the OK from HR to offer this with the possibility of working from home a few days of the week, and in the office the other days. We're hoping to draw in some more candidates from outside of our local area. This is only the second position at our institution that is not fully on site, so we're in uncharted territory!I'm curious to know, does anyone work part-time…See More
