So I am still in the midst of Learning Design Summer Camp 2008, and we are using the backchannel to add to the conversation that is being held here. While hashtags.com has been temporarily sidelined because Twitter has disengaged the IM feature as well as severely limiting the API access, we are using twitscoop.com. The upside is that we can once again aggregate the LDSC08 tagged tweets and have a graphical representation of the twitter activity. The downside? My protected tweets don’t show up in the aggregated twitter feed. Okay, this is the last straw. I have finally taken the plunge and changed my account to a public account. Will I stay there? Can I handle the spotlight of spammers, random followers, and unwelcomed enlightenment? I don’t know, but I suppose I’m tired of defending my protected status and we shall see what becomes of it.
Wouldn’t it be ironic, however, if NOTHING CHANGED? How veeeeery interesting. </slowly sinks down, disappears behind the tall grasses>
