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've finally jumped on the bandwagon: http://twitter.com/aaronrester
Like most of you, took me awhile to get in the habit - and while I fail to blog, twitter has proved invaluable to collaborate with many of here and a good chunk of my colleagues and clients in the community.

Still trying to figure out the best way to use it. Right now, it's more of a time killer for me. It's nice to meet other local people who use it, but that's the only good I've found in it so far. I guess it also fills a little pleasure of being an exhibitionist knowing there are people who passively spy on my life.

Not that I'm an exhibitionist, I'm the opposite really, but this give me a false sense of an audience who cares what I think.
We've got a pretty good group of Twitterers so far, but I just thought I've give this a bump so others can join us as well.
One of the emerging things we've noticed here at PSU is our tendency to "Tweet" conferences. We've had two local conferences this spring, and both had a lot of Tweeting going on. Folks shared resources in sessions, gave brief bullet points about the discussion and what they were learning, and basically made the two conferences (at least for me) a much richer experience that was captured even more on the fly than it could be in a blog.

I think of it as adding a sort of "overlay" to what was happening in the room. Like the conference actually had two levels. The local, resident level, and the virtual Twitter overlay. It's been really interesting to me.
We haven't seen much of that yet at Case yet. Craig Newmark (Case alum and this year's commencement speaker) did some live blogging and Tweeting during commencement. Given how common place it is for the audience to document major events in real time, I would expect the concept would make it's way to smaller campus events. That's great that you're already seeing it at PSU.

I still have to remember to Tweet more often. Getting the email about this post was what reminded me to go Tweet a few minutes ago (http://twitter.com/hacool/). I'm still more active on Pownce (as I tend to be more verbose than 140 characters allows) and have recently been experimenting with Plurk. (Which I recently blogged about at http://blog.case.edu/webdev/2008/06/08/plurk.html) I think Plurk's interface is a bit easier to follow, but things like karma and goofy looking creatures may keep people from using it professionally.

I also like the Social Media room on Friend Feed. People share a lot of interesting ideas there. So many services...so little time...
I would use Plurk more if it got along better with Opera. Plurk's popups either have no content or truncated content in Opera.

Archived magazine stories

Greetings,What are you all doing online with "old" magazine stories? Do you delete issues after so  many years? 5 years? 10? I'm torn between keeping all on for historical purposes or keeping just a few years online to simplify the site (ala Gerry McGovern.) Curious as to what you see best practices being.ThanksSara KisseberthBluffton Universitywww.bluffton.eduSee More
