What a great video. Love the fishing analogy. Having just started tweeting I am already seeing the benefit of having resources and articles ‘pushed’ to me. One thing I find difficult is keeping on top of everything coming through; you say in your video that if you do miss something it will appear again but does this actually happen? I do feel a compulsion to check twitter regularly so I don’t feel paranoid about missing something important. If I leave it for longer than a day I don’t have the time to catch up with everything I missed. I’m currently plucking up the courage to tweet more regularly…. it can be quite intimidating as a newcomer! I think you have to be quite selective as to who you follow as well….

Great video, Paul. I just found it. May I quote you in an article that I am writing? The quote: “Twitter is a way of having open dialogue about learning with people we respect at a time that we choose in a way that doesn’t take us away from the classroom.” Brilliant!

One frequent perceived technical problem with FeedBurner is the reduced number of subscribers being reported for the blogs using the service. This is not actually a technical problem with FeedBurner, but by the feed readers and aggregators that report to FeedBurner, as FeedBurner collects and tallies from those partners. Usually this problem is connected with one specific RSS reader or client. ;:
