Did you hear what I said?
My number one source of information!
Unreal. I know.
I am amazed by the implications of all this. The amount of sharing that occurs on Twitter is simply unbelievable. And here is an example of how Twitter can be so damn cool:
I have met some very interesting people on Twitter including:
- @educatoral has retweeted me more than almost anyone else I know.
- @kmcg2375 is from Australia and we have engaged in some rather interesting dialogue about how stupid grading is.
- @ktenkely hates grades too. We talked.
- @tomwhitby blogs. I commented on his blog.
- @josieholford has suggested a number of anti-grading book titles for me to call the book I have yet to write, but should write sometime soon.
- @tkraz is quite perplexed by my views on not grading effort.
- @monk51295 loves to hear about how we should subvert grading
- @republicofmath seems to agree that grades are the spawn of the devil
- @akamrt I owe him a bottle of Crown as of today, but by the end of the Olympics, he will owe me :)
- @hshawjr doesn't like grading, but I am still trying to find out whether he really grades as little as possible.
- @aaron_eyler we guest blogged
Aaron Eyler and I decided to guest blog with each other. I sent him a direct message on Twitter asking if he would like to blog on my blog while I blogged on his blog.
Here's my idea: I want to encourage even more sharing. Aaron has a following with his blog. I have a following with my blog. If I write on his blog, and he writes on mine, there is a chance that we could end up sharing our readership. The idea being that we would share more.
So now I am looking for other bloggers who want to share more. I want to create a network of bloggers who occassionaly guest blog for each other in an attempt to share and link more bloggers and readers to more bloggers and readers.
Sound intersting? Want to guest blog with me or Aaron? tweet me joe_bower or aaron_eyler
