After reading some discussion here, following links, and reading at 2 Cents Worth about Ning, I wanted to share a few things I learned here today.

I learned about the site LifeHacker, which I hadn't seen before.

I found Chris Craft's blog, Crucial Thought.

I followed the link to the Classroom 2.0 wiki and explored that some. (had heard about it but hadn't followed up on it.) Through that site, I found a Texas wiki that I hadn't seen before either.

I identified a lot with some comments about educational technology by Sylvia Martinez and invited her to be a friend.

I only have time to really explore here a couple of times a week, but I've enjoyed discovering some new connections.

Anyone else?

Carolyn, thanks for the post. I was just questioning the importance of social spaces like this and after reading your entry perhaps I need to recognize that they have some utility. Perhaps a useful metaphor for a social site is that it is a hub of activity. Hubs are not intendend to confine the whole activity simply be in the center. The question I have is how many hubs are enough hubs?

Andrew, there are a lot of resources out there. I guess my thinking is--why do we have to define which "one" is the "one"? There just seems to be a lot of debate here about whether this will be helpful or not....I think time will tell the tale. And even if it doesn't live on as a permanent entity, anywhere we learn is worthwhile, isn't it?
