  2. @Brad – Well, I tried to provide some context though (that is in 140 characters, but the blog posts will prevail, no doubt about that at

    I guess Twitter is good especially when the internet connection is bad and you never know if you’re going to get access next time you hit “submit.”

  3. I’m a self-confessed info junkie, so it could just be me. :) Some people might want the quick and dirty, so having both could be a good thing. Keep the blogs coming!

    There are several people from the IT department at Butler at the conference. I think I will try HighEdWebDev in Missouri next year rather than Stamats, the amount of content at this conference is amazing [there I go with my yearning for massive amounts of content again! :) ]
