Vision for lifelong learning organizations: help people achieve their highest potential, reach their deepest passions.

@cpriest So, the next phase is to improve last-mile services. Are there initiatives underway for that?
@cpriest 3RB goes through Dover-Foxcroft and Milo, though, and at same rate as urban hubs. Doesn’t that help local ISPs provide service?

@cpriest Isn’t the 3-ring binder intended to help local ISPs connect to backbone at standard rates? Doesn’t provide service to every door.

What would I do without private lists, saved searches, and #nambu? Taken together: Twitter on steroids.
Colleagues who are using Wordpress in education: I have started using the #wpedu hashtag. Will you, too?
Were you a #technodyne contractor when they closed? Interested in working together to get outstanding invoices paid? If so, please DM me.

RT @pemaquid Whatever you do, be authentic + make sure you’re having fun!
Another benefit of going to a conference: space away from the routine for ideas to gel. Now I’m ready for the state superintendents meeting!
I love the Portland ME Jetport. Lush green views … and 2 Shipyard pubs, inside and outside security. Makes you want to have a delay. #PWM
The #psuweb11 backchannel was just as valuable as the frontchannel. Last night they even swapped. Which comes first: the Twitter or the egg?
Colleague is recruiting a traffic coordinator/operations/project manager in wonderful Portland, Maine! Contact @pemaquid for details.
RT @sunnyhunt The more social “venues” appear, the more I’m retreating into myself. [Me, too. Enough social for social’s sake, already.]
@StephenFarmer Looking forward to it!
Press releases are the past. Stories, integrated into the whole online experience and useful for all constituents, are the future. #psuweb11
From publishing to engagement to collaboration to exchange. What matters are satisfactory exchanges between people. #psuweb11

@LogicalChoice Since when does an average represent the wide variety of professions, types of higher ed, and individual experiences?
@LogicalChoice Surprising when the audience is “inside higher education” isn’t it? Are the writers misjudging the audience? Or not? ;)

U.S. higher ed. loves silos, but the online world is boundary-free: bits are bits. Will HE catch up before its too late? @radiofreegeorgy
@ShellyKeith: Check out integrated redirection, broken link checker, Super Cache, Edit Flow, Turbo CSV import.
@StephenFarmer WordPress plus plugins (Buddypress, IM, ics, group docs) does much of that.
RT @TimNekritz Find me a time machine so I can go back to 2003, and it will never be a problem. [Hah!]
BTW, I’m at #psuweb11, and many respected colleagues are here. However, this is huge and I haven’t actually seen some of you yet!
Will anyone be discussing learning, curated resources, and taxonomy? If so, I’m interested. #psuweb11
Just as we won’t be talking about web pages in 5 years, I don’t think we’ll be using the term “website.” #psuweb11
Big difference between repository of content and a pile of papers lying in stacks. Organization, not no. of pages, is the rubric. #psuweb11
Will we be fixated on professionally-controlled content in 5 years? As much as the social curation of user/constituent content? #psuweb11
Why shouldn’t a website be like a filing cabinet? If its well-organized and usable, what diff. does the “number of pages” make? #psuweb11
Should we “start with the content” or should we start with our constituents? #psuweb11
Soon, constituents will be developing more engaging, valuable content about us than we will. #psuweb11
Kristina Halvorson is focusing on the management of _professional_ Web content at #psuweb11.
