Knowledge, Learning, Community
Today's newsletter seems to be all about me. Me me me! Just kidding. But there's three items in a row here. The first item points to reaction to a review of Facebook I wrote for Innovate (registration required - I am really really sorry about that and complain monthly to the editor). Steve Bingham captures the main idea nicely: "FB is a social network in the same way that a university is a place where certain people learn to network. If that is true then Facebook is not failing to bring educational content to the world; rather, Facebook is succeeding at being the essence of the university." Mark Aberdour also comments on the review.
