Wow. 4,700 tweets over 5 years. Looking back. http://t.co/X0PbpQAC Not too embarrassing.
@BryanAlexander “Evaluation requires a pause, a quiet space apart from always-on” Yes. After open-minded discovery, one sifts possibilities.
I’ve used iTunes on my Mac since it first came out. Since last version, I now have to force quit every time. Looking for alternatives.
@BryanAlexander Cycle of learning includes BOTH synchronous collaboration and asynchronous contemplation. Always-on doesn’t allow evaluation

Pennoyer: Personnel costs (including fringe and collective bargaining agreements) are actually only 15% of the #Maine budget. Other: 85%.
Pennoyer: Next week in #Maine legislature will be tough: second year of biennial budget must be in balance. Hard when revenues are down.
Rector: Right now, every single bill in #Maine gets a hearing, even those that have no viability. We need a different triage process.
Rector: Much of what you read about politics is theater, it sells newspapers. More important: I represent the values of my district.
Rector: #Maine legislators ask: are you a representative or a trustee of the common good? You need to be be comfortable with your decisions.
Rector: #Maine’s major 2011 transition was a success due to legislators’ respect, wisdom, and caring for Maine people and the process.
Rector: Worth remembering that last year #Maine underwent a significant transition of power, peacefully. A model to the rest of the world.
Rector: #Maine Leadership decided to combine Labor and Business committees, and it’s a huge portfolio, so there’s a huge learning curve.
Rector: Serving in the legislature, you need to learn a lot about many things, and be more deeply knowledgeable about a handful of them.
