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?

Hey Matt,

I'm on twitter, http://twitter.com/justinshattuck/

I think we might want to make this a more usable list than a discussion, however I must warn. I am a web-developer with attitude. Actually, I'm more like a "punk kid" cowboy developer that is really good at what he does and gets in a bit of trouble along the way; so my tweets reflect that inspiration. I would prefer that you read/follow with an unbiased opinion.. but then again, its your call -- just don't get offended. I LOVE EVERYONE! (in a non hippy sort).
Side note, utilize #uwebd on twitter for ease of tracking random discussions..
Greetings folks.

I'm coming to the Higher Ed digital world from online news. I was the general manager of The Baltimore Sun's interactive division until recently. I am joining Johns Hopkins University as director of web strategy. More to come on that.

But for now, and to the point, here's where I tweet:

I really should start using this Ning thing more. You can find me pretty much anywhere else too, just search for "Nick DeNardis".

I am the Associate Director of Web Communications at Wayne State University

At NCSU we are using it to keep people informed about our projects and processes, as well as just to create more of a community atmosphere in the campus web development community. We started our own Ning site for NCSU Web Developers, and twitter was one of the additional ways that we're starting to keep in touch with each other's daily musings and projects.
I guess I'm pretty late to this thread.

For me the verdict on Twitter is still out. I may abandon it, or I may make it a central communication hub for learning and talking about things that are 1) too interesting/important to ignore completely but 2) not critical or big enough to write a blog posting about.

One key rule I have is that when using my blog twitter account (http://twitter.com/alumnifutures), I immediately unfollow anyone who 1) posts more than 5 consecutive tweets and/or 2) mentions something like recipes, the dog's medicine, how badly their favorite team is playing, etc. I think that you really need to curate the collection of people you follow.

I wrote about the potential of Twitter to be useful within alumni networks (but it needs Groups functionality for that to happen): http://is.gd/7mDV.
UPDATE: After a month of "immediately unfollowing" people per the description I gave here, I've relented somewhat and am switching to following those people from my personal Twitter account instead. Another group I've identified that I don't enjoy following is people whose tweets consist mostly/entirely of @ replies.
I have replied before, but just created a new account for professional/web design use. @annmwhite
Is anyone retweeting interesting posts by this austere group?

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
